The Dumb WaiterOct. 26-31 As the New York World-Telegram & Sun describes: “In the basement of a long-abandoned restaurant, two hired killers nervously await their next assignment. Barred from daylight and living public contact by the nature of their work, they expend their waiting time in bickering. So eerie is the situation that everything becomes comic, or grotesque, or both. Ben re-reading a newspaper and exclaiming in disbelief over the news items, Gus fussing with an offstage stove and offstage plumbing. Ben bludgeoning Gus into silence if he as much as mentions their work. Gus worrying that someone had slept in his bed. So then the ancient dumbwaiter comes to life, the suspense becomes almost unbearable—that expertly has Pinter put the nerves of his characters and audience on edge."

Kill the EditorNov. 9-14 When Ben lands his dream job editing a feature-length documentary film to be screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, he doesn’t realize that Cameron, the self-obsessed, maniacal director, is attached to a five-hour version and doesn’t want to touch a frame. And when Libby, the previous editor who Cameron fired after they began to sleep together, returns demanding her job back, Ben finds himself suddenly caught between them. With only five days before the screening, Ben desperately attempts to satisfy everyone’s expectations while simultaneously create a work of art.

Black background with red lights on a stage and purple fireworks at the top. At the bottom we can see the arms and heads of a large crowd cheering. A person is jumping in the middle of the picutre, striking a cheerleading pose. Stamped on top of everything are the words "BRING IT ON The Musical" in white letters.Nov. 5-13 Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic — she's been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition — the National Championships.

The picture has a purple filter over it so everything has a tint of purple. The sky looks really purple.  The title "Violet" is edited on top of the image. Feb. 11-19 As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved she's traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical "imperfections."

The picture is focused on a bus driving on a road that seems to be surrounded by green bushes and trees. There are mountains in the distance. The picture has a purple filter over it so everything has a tint of purple. The sky looks really purple.  The title "Violet" is edited on top of the image. Feb. 11-19 As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved she's traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical "imperfections."

The background is a light blue color. The yellow designs across the poster are shapes of wheels you'd find in the mechanism of a clock. Stamped on top of the designs is the title Coppelia, spelled in dark pink/purple letters. Underneath the title is a small mannequin covered in different colors; including the same dark pink/purple color. April 27-30 Coppelia is a comedic ballet originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Leon to music by Leo Delibes. Dr. Coppelius is a doctor who has made a life-size dancing doll. It is so lifelike that Franz, a village youth, becomes infatuated with it and sets aside his heart's true desire, Swanhilda. She shows him his folly by dressing as the doll, pretending to make it come to life and ultimately saving him from an untimely end at the hands of the inventor.
