Eurydice

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater
“Don’t look back.”
This famously unheeded advice has sparked the imaginations of countless artists over the centuries, from poets to choreographers to cinematographers. Pulitzer Prize nominee Sarah Ruhl’s contemporary look at the myth of Orpheus re-tells the story from the perspective of his wife Eurydice, with her descent into Hades where she learns about love and loss, and wrestles with the decision to return to earth with her husband or to stay in Hades with her father. Written by Ruhl after the death of her own father, Eurydice’s poetic style is visually magical and emotionally alluring, providing a fresh look at a timeless story.
Rated PG.

A singing, dancing and snapping romantic comedy all about self-discovery, the ridiculously enjoyable Legally Blonde: The Musical is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 blockbuster movie starring Reece Witherspoon. California sorority girl Elle Woods determinedly follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard University in a blaze of pink to win him back with her charms. Along the way she discovers her own intelligence and talents with the help of the apparitions of her Delta Nu sisters, who act as a Greek chorus, her new friends, and of course, her chihuahua Bruiser. Funny and fabulous—case closed.

Hay Fever

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater
Noel Coward’s comic play, written in 1924, may be best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners. As a kind of Jazz Age soap opera featuring flamboyancy, extremes and sharp wit, it provides a glimpse into the rapidly changing climate of the 1920s and 30s. In Hay Fever, we visit the English countryside and meet the bohemian Bliss family, with their outlandish amorous adventures. When they each invite a guest to stay for the weekend, hilarity ensues as they continually demonstrate their eccentric behavior until driving their guests to sneak away.
Rated G.
