THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG
Sept. 29-30 & October 6-7, 7 p.m.
By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields | Directed by Michelle Bayer
From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
THE CAMPER (Original Musical)

Book and Lyrics by Mark Burns | Music by Nick Kabat | Directed by Linda Burns
Orphaned and left to fend for themselves, teenager MacArthur Douglas and his older brother Boyd live in a camper. But MacArthur won't let his stark circumstances stop him from asking his classmate and crush, Denise Drummer, to homecoming. The biggest challenge to winning her heart might just be the impending alien invasion that his brother Boyd swears is coming. Set in 1990 in Walnut, Illinois, The Camper is a new full-length musical and small-town Midwest gothic story of making it through high school, reckoning with romance and family, and fighting to survive the end of the world.

By Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond, and Nell Benjamin | Based on the Paramount Pictures film Mean Girls | Directed by Michelle Bayer
Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady and her friends devise a "Revenge Party" to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung. Adapted from Fey's hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards.
March 14 & 16 at 7 p.m., March 15 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Directed by Avi Lessing
A girl and her mother go to a café to have coffee and ice cream. And while they’re there, they listen to an extraordinary set of conversations of various couples that range from the mundane to the ethereal but all seem to ask the questions, how do I want to look back on my life? The answers are curiously poignant, strange, indecipherable, and full of what the philosopher Edmund Husserl calls the ineffable. Note: In the spirit of Charles Mee’s work, the script will be drawn from this play, his other plays, student writing, speaking, dancing, singing and other inexplicable surprises and discoveries.
