Welcome to the Age of Aquarius! Hair comes to EPAC!

April 27 – May 13

Hair is rated R, as it contains full frontal nudity, frank sexual talk, language, drug use and adult situations.

If you’re up for a wild ride, Hair is the show for you. It’s a trippy show full of sexy rebellion, radical rock, and the probing questions that face every one of us. Theater fans will love finding all of the hidden Shakespeare gems, and music fans will be dancing in their seats.

The Cripple of Inishmaan

June 8 - 17

Read more on our show page.

The Cripple of Inishmaan is a dark yet surprisingly touching comedy-drama by Martin McDonagh. Witness a remote Irish village in the 1930s in which everyone goes a little crazy — and they’re rather crazy under normal circumstances — when they hear that filmmakers from Hollywood will be making a movie in their town. The play is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan off the western coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighboring Inishmore to make a documentary about life on the islands. "Cripple" Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty, and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film; and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance . . . or so some believe. The Cripple of Inishmaan is a major play from one of our best modern playwrights. Sweet and sentimental as well as dark and brooding, it is as sweet and savory as a hearty Irish stew.

Our Upcoming 2017 Season

Join Us in 2017

We are preparing another season of great theater for you. In each of next year's shows, the leading character goes on a life-changing journey. Some of the journeys lead to love and joy. Some lead to a greater appreciation for our common humanity. As in real life, some do not end happily. Each of these plays and musicals tells a compelling story about how the choices we make in life help us discover who we really are. Let's explore all that we can.
