Dale Wasserman's acclaimed stage adaptation of Ken Kesey's best-selling novel is described by The New York Times as a "hilariously scarifying and powerful journey" that will not only make you laugh hysterically, but will surely tug at your heart strings. Unlike the Oscar-winning film version starring Jack Nicholson, this brilliant, darkly comic ode to the rebellious offers a more intimate look into the minds of these hilariously troubled characters.
Cuckoo's Nest becomes an outlandish battle of the wills as McMurphy convinces his fellow patients to fight at his side against the many injustices they face. While continuously taunting the iron-fisted Nurse Ratched, this band of unlikely brothers uses card games, the World Series and an unsupervised deep sea fishing trip as tools to fight against their oppressors. In the end they must all confront the same stark reality, but many of them also find a much needed sense of self-respect. Was it worth it? You be the judge.
Remember that the one who marches out of step may simply hear a different drum.
The Ephrata Performing Arts Center would like to welcome young performers to register for its 2014 Center Stage Theater Camp. This year promises to be the best camp yet as EPAC artists and educators plan to challenge the mind as well as warm the artistic soul through the magic of the performing arts. Make the summer of 2014 one of intellectual, social, and artistic growth by registering now !
In our 2014 season, we will present a group of exciting shows, some of which are new to our stage while others are time-tested classics definitely worth another look. From the upbeat, modern fun of Legally Blonde to the dark, tuneful and still-provocative Cabaret, from the sweeping romanticism of Sunday in the Park With George to the powerhouse drama of Death of a Salesman and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, EPAC's 2014 offerings will both challenge and entertain.
If you are a longtime EPAC family member, please join us for another year of great theatre. If you have never subscribed, please join us for the first time. We look forward to seeing you all. See the entire 2014 show schedule
Artistic expression in any form can have a profound effect on those who take the time to appreciate it. Stephen Sondheim took notice of the power of artistic transformation in 1984 when he, along with James Lapine, penned the Broadway masterpiece Sunday in the Park with George. Thirty years after Sunday won two Tony Awards, numerous Drama Desk Awards and a Pulitzer Prize for drama, EPAC will once again reinvent a modern classic. View show detail.
