2022 23 theatre season heading image

UAH Theatre announces the 2022-2023 season (#18) and it is REVOLTING! 

This year, we have focused on comedy, good feels, and REVOLUTION! Join us as we examine women and the revolution, an important cultural musical, and a readers series of new and diverse work all in the Black Box Theatre in Morton Hall.  

The SPARK Readers Theatre Series #1

The Underpants Godot by Duncan Pflaster

The Underpants Godot is about a director who's surreptitiously rehearsing for an avant-garde production of “Waiting for Godot”, with the main characters played by hot dudes in their underpants instead of old men. A representative from the notoriously litigious Samuel Beckett estate crashes a rehearsal to investigate and decide whether the performance should be allowed. The play is a hilarious meta-theatrical piece about the limits of adaptation and interpretation.

The Spark is a staged reading series performed in front of a live audience. Actors read from scripts and the stage directions are read aloud. This unique presentation of a play has all of the timing and emotional dynamics of a live performance without the demands of fully produced theatrical work. A well-executed staged reading can serve as the springboard for a number of successful theater projects and give audiences access to material they may never have otherwise. The series will highlight plays by diverse authors about diverse matters relevant today.

The Revolutionists

by Lauren Gundersen 

In a country divided between the haves and the have-nots, and facing the threats of domestic terrorism and civil war, four women come together to unite as a sisterhood and fight back using the magic of theatre. When deposed queen Marie Antoinette, playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, and freedom fighter Marianne Angelle join forces, the Reign of Terror will cower and a free France will rise. They hope. Fingers crossed. A comedy based on true stories, The Revolutionists is a play that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you cheer: Vive la Femme!

“…a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure…

Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado

Music by Galt MacDermot

The American tribal love rock musical Hair celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like "Aquarius," "Good Morning, Starshine," "Hair," "I Got Life" and "Let The Sun Shine." Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility, and peace, Hair remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
