King Lear
Runs: March 16-March 25

The Ephrata Performing Arts Center returns to the works of Shakespeare with King Lear. It depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythological pre-Roman Celtic King, the play has been widely adapted for the stage and motion pictures with the title role coveted by many of the world's most accomplished actors.

Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical
Runs April 27 - May 13

A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, the rock musical Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City.

The Cripple of Inishmaan
Runs June 8-June 17

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 when they hear that filmmakers from Hollywood will be making a movie in their town.

Meredith Willson's The Music Man
Runs July 20-August 5

A classic never grows old, and The Music Man proves this point. The plot concerns con man Harold Hill, who poses as a boys' band organizer and leader and sells band instruments and uniforms to the naive Iowa townsfolk, promising to train the members of the new band.

Doubt: a parable
Runs September 7 - September 16

Doubt is one of the most renowned plays of our time. Doubt takes the uncomfortable subject of child abuse within the Catholic Church and distills it down to a parable about the philosophical and human aspects of incrimination.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Runs October 20 - November 5

Set in 19th century England, the musical details the return of barber Sweeney Todd to London after fifteen years of exile in order to take revenge on the corrupt judge who banished him, by conspiring with a local baker, Mrs. Lovett, who is in desperate need of fresh meat for her pies.

The Wizard of Oz
Runs December 7 - December 23

The Wizard of Oz has become a yearly holiday tradition, and we are happy to present this timeless classic for the entire family on our main stage. Join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion as they follow the yellow brick road to help Dorothy get back home.
