Once upon a time – in 2005 – a twenty-year-old girl named Annie returned to her native Russia to brush up on the language and lose her American accent. Underneath a glamorous post-Soviet Moscow studded with dangerously high heels, designer bags, and luxe fur coats, she discovers an enchanted motherland teeming with evil stepmothers, wicked witches, and ravenous bears. Annie must learn how to become the heroine of a story more mysterious and treacherous than any childhood fairy tale: her own. This subversive story haunts the audience and carries a powerful message for young women living in a world where not everything ends up happily ever after. Directed by Dr. Rusalyn Andrews. Adult Audience. $5/$4

Clifton Truman Daniel took up the mantle in October of 2017, marking the first time in history a US president would be portrayed onstage by a direct descendant. $7/$5, tickets
