2005 Spring Season

February 22, 2005 :: No. 134

The spring season opens with the must see American drama, The American Clock by the late American playwright Arthur Miller. This brilliantly theatrical kaleidoscopic drama is a study of America during the early years of the Great Depression. Directed by professional director and CSUF professor Joseph Arnold, it runs February 25-March 6, 2005 in the Little Theatre.

Professional director and CSUF professor, James R. Taulli directs Constance Congdon’s dark comedy, Tales of the Lost Formicans. Part dream play, part science fiction farce, this dark comedy contemplates American angst with wry wit, power, and a freshness of spirit. It runs in rotating repertory with Nickel and Dimed March 11-April 9, 2005 in the Arena Theatre. The show contains mature language and sexual content.

Nickel and Dimed, by Joan Holden and based on the book by Barbara Ehrenreich, explores the harsh realities of surviving in America for low level workers who must choose to eat or pay rent. Professional director and CSUF faculty member Donn Finn directs this social drama. The show runs in rotating repertory with Tales of the Lost Formicans in the Arena Theatre March 12-April 10, 2005.

The Spring Dance Theatre, coordinated by Gladys Kares, celebrates the joy of dance with choreography by CSUF alumni, faculty and students. It runs April 7-10, 2005 in the Little Theatre.

The riveting operatic masterpiece, Dialogues of the Carmelites by Francis Poulenc and George Bernanos, is a moving and tragic story that centers on the battle of religion and nationality. Directed by professional director Dean Hess, with musical direction by Janet Smith and Mark Salters, this fearful tale of faith and martyrdom runs April 22-May 1, 2005 in the Little Theatre. This is a “College of the Arts” production.

The season ends with the wonderfully bizarre, but poignant and haunting stories of the musical, Weird Romance. Directed by new CSUF faculty member and professional director Eve Himmelheber, with musical direction by Mitchell Hanlon, this show includes two one-act musicals that sport the brilliant collaboration of Alan Menken, David Spencer and Alan Brennert. The show runs May 13-22, 2005 in the Recital Hall.
