February 7, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. CST (Virtual only) – “Kodachrome” by Adam Szymkowicz.  A play about love, nostalgia, the seasons and how we learn to say goodbye.  Playbill found here.

March 7, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. CST – “The Safe House” by Kristine Thatcher. It is 1982 when Bridget returns home to Lansing, Michigan, from New York City, where she gets by as an actress. While She longs for a comfortable stay with her grandmother Hannah, what she finds is a family struggling with change. Hannah, the strong, independent matriarch of the family, is no longer as self-sufficient as she was, and her family is at odds on how to ensure her well-being. With gentle humor, honesty, and heart, this play is a beautiful examination of family, transition, and the importance of being there for each other.

April 4, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. CDT – “A Rock Sails By” by Sean Grennan.  A troubled astrophysicist is shaken when a strange object from outside of our galaxy heads towards Earth and calls into question her belief about what’s “out there.”

Should you have any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our winter Box Office at (715) 718-0347, Monday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
