Romp through the forest with two pairs of ardent young lovers as they escape the tyranny of rule and family to enter the earthy, unpredictable netherworld of the forest. By twists and turns, the mystical inhabitants of the forest play havoc with the lovers as well as a ragtag band of tradespeople, turning everyone’s world upside down. A delightful tale of magic and romance.

Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You: Sister Mary Ignatius, a teaching nun who is much concerned with sin in all of its various forms, delivers a cautionary lecture to her charges. When several of her former students turn up it is quickly apparent they all share a loathing for Sister Mary and the unyielding dogma she forced on them in their formative years. This bold and clever satire won an Obie award. 

 

The Actor’s Nightmare: Having casually wandered on stage,George, an accountant, is informed that one of the actors has been in an auto accident and he must replace him immediately. Apparently no one is sure of what play is being performed, but George fumbles through one missed cue after another as the other actors shift to Hamlet, then a play by Samuel Beckett, and then a climactic scene from what might be A Man for All Seasons—at which time he ends up facing a much too real-looking executioner. 

 

Atlantic Stage, the Myrtle Beach area’s only professional theatre, was organized by Coastal Carolina University theatre faculty and utilizes CCU’s stage facilities at its 79th Avenue location. Tickets available at www.atlanticstage.com
