Two sets of identical twins separated years ago find themselves in the same town and caught up in each other’s business in this raucous comedy by the most famous playwright ever! Come see why one of Shakespeare’s first plays is among his most popular. Fast-paced and outrageous, this comic farce has everything for everybody—mistaken identities, silly plot complications and romance, and of course, it all ends happily!

November 16-20, 2011

A witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love, Next Fall focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke and goes beyond a typical love story. This new American play-- laugh-filled and compassionate--forces us all to examine what it means to believe and what it might cost us not to.

Warning: Next Fall contains some adult language and situations.

by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin
February 22-26 2012

The EKU Department of Music and EKU Theatre again join forces for one of the funniest musicals of recent years. Putnam is set in a middle-school spelling bee where each of the mis-fit participants wants to win...and needs to win even more! Some audience members will be actively involved in the playful action as each of the characters realizes his/her self-worth, but only one person can win The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Who will it be?

Warning: This show is not recommended for younger audiences.
 

The Star-Spangled Girl (Photo Gallery)

by Neil Simon
April 18-22, 2012
Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl, pays a good-neighbor visit to her new next-door neighbors, Andy and Norman, two earnest young men who publish a “protest” magazine. Norman is immediately smitten and pursues Sophie maniacally while she realizes the person she’s really attracted to is Andy. In one of his earliest plays, Neil Simon charmingly shows us how he became modern America’s leading comic playwright.
