By Thomas Nash and Christopher Marlowe

Aeneas, prince of the lost city of Troy and son of the goddess Venus, is aboard a ship bound for the North African coast when he becomes lost in a storm. The god Jupiter steps in and saves him by calming the seas, allowing Aeneas to land safely. At first, all seems well. Once on land, Aeneas meets Dido, the Queen of Carthage, and he tells her of the destruction of Troy and the purpose for his trip and destiny: to found a new Troy in Italy. Dido supports Aeneas’s goal and agrees to supply his ships. But then Cupid arrives and casts a spell to make Dido fall in love with Aeneas. More storms (literally and figuratively) ensue as now Dido, in love with Aeneas, desperately tries to keep Aeneas from leaving.

Venice Preserv’d

PAN by Jeremy Fiebig

Peter, an impish boy who refuses to grow up — and who can fly! — lands in a suburban home looking for his shadow. Once inside, he befriends the children: Wendy, John, and Michael. With help from some magic fairy dust, Peter teaches them to fly before whisking them off for adventures on the island of Neverland: a land inhabited by mermaids, fairies, and, of course, pirates. The enduring story of Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, by JM Barrie premiered in 1904 at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London. In 1911, Barrie adapted and expanded the play into a novel published as Peter and Wendy. An adaptation of JM Barrie’s classic tale by Artistic Director Jeremy Fiebig is a delightful adventure for the whole family.
