Art (Comedy)
By Yazmina Reza

April 8 at 2:00 & 7:00 p.m. and April 10 at 2:00 p.m.
McAlpin Fine Arts Theatre
Tickets: $15

What defines “good art”? When is a white square not a white square? Is our personal identity defined by our self-conception or how others perceive us? Yazmina Reza’s Tony award-winning comedy Art asks all these questions and more. Three best friends watch their relationship crumble when a questionable purchase of modern art turns into an act of rebellion. As the scathing insults fly, the absurd hilarity rises to the point where we don’t know whether to laugh or cry at these three men trying to pick up the pieces of a friendship that perhaps was always just as empty as the white square canvas masquerading as art.

The Revolutionists (Drama)
By Lauren Gunderson

April 9, 10 at 7:00 p.m. and April 11 at 2:00 p.m.
McAlpin Fine Arts Theatre
Tickets: $15

Playwright Lauren Gunderson creates semi-factual portraits of four very real women who lived and died through the French Revolution. A celebration of sisterhood in the face of terror, the play puts a cutting, contemporary, and compassionate take on what it was like for these women to stand up and fight for what they believed in. Through humor, fantasy, and the magic of theatre, watch this quartet of revolutionary role-models, who most likely never actually met in real life, redefine, reimagine and reclaim the record, in the name of egalite, liberte, fraternite and...sororite! These incredible women truly turn history into herstory.  

  Company Singers

A Vocal Montage
A Unique Assortment of Vocal Music, Classical and Popular

Saturday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
McAlpin Fine Arts Theatre
Tickets: $15

The IRSC Chorale presents the memorable verses of Homer (from The Odyssey), Robert Burns (in wonderful poetry saluting love and loss) and Shakespeare (in contemporary musical arrangements by composer Matthew Harris).  These writings stand as remarkable tributes to the English language and will certainly assist you in transcending the commonplace.  Hear from our newest ensemble—The Company Trio, a delightful group of three female vocalists, who offer selections from American popular music heritage in this memorable experience.
