COME FROM AWAY
Jan 29 @ 1:00 pm
Peace Concert Hall

On 9/11, the world stopped.

On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY is a Best Musical winner all across North America! This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. Don’t miss this breathtaking musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

AQUILA THEATRE IN JANE AUSTEN’S PRIDE + PREJUDICE
Jan 29 @ 6:30 pm
Peace Center--Gunter Theatre

‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.’ 

Published in 1813, Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy Pride and Prejudice has stood the test of time. Filled with unforgettable characters, including Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, this sharp social satire has it all; wit, love and lots of dancing!

As the Bennet sisters try to navigate their way toward love and marriage, Austen humorously skewers the hypocrisies and absurdities of the English class system and puts the thoughts and feelings of her women characters front and center.

Aquila Theatre will bring this classic thrillingly to life with its signature passion, energy, and visual flair. The New Yorker says that “Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect,” while DC Metro Arts described Aquila’s production of Austen’s Sense and Sensibility as ‘Delightful – one of the joys of Aquila Theatre, a fun and lively version.’ Artistic director Desiree Sanchez’s adaptation of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was described by The New York Theatre Guide as ‘another piece of theatrical genius. Her direction is polished and laser sharp. She gets the maximum amount of potential out of every stage moment, has exceptional attention to detail, and is a demiurge of direction.’


Aquila is one of the foremost producers of classical theater in the United States, visiting 50-60 American cities per year. Since its founding in 1991, the company has built an extensive international touring circuit, received numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and others as well as performed at the White House under the Bush and Obama administrations.

AQUILA THEATRE IN SHAKESPEARE’S JULIUS CAESAR
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm
Peace Center--Gunter Theatre

Beware the Ides of March… 

In Aquila theatre’s striking new production, Shakespeare’s tense political thriller bursts into life with complex characters and powerful contemporary parallels. Artistic director Desiree Sanchez brings her signature visual style to the fall and rise of Rome’s ruling class and takes us on a journey into a world of conspiracy and betrayal.

Fresh from success on the battlefield, a triumphant Caesar returns to Rome a virtual dictator. Brutus, Cassius & a group of like-minded senators decide that his undemocratic power grab must be stopped.

The great Caesar must be assassinated.  

After the act has been carried out, violence erupts on the streets of the capital and the country is plunged into civil war.  The conspirators find they must contend with forces still loyal to the murdered leader, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. The play reaches its climax when the two opposing sides meet in battle at Philippi, and the fate of a nation hangs in the balance.

Aquila Theatre will breathe new fire and fury into this timeless tale, with The New Yorker describing their productions as “the classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging” while The New York Times praises “the excellent Aquila Theatre, an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.”


Aquila is one of the foremost producers of classical theater in the United States, visiting 50-60 American cities per year. Since its founding in 1991, the company has built an extensive international touring circuit, received numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and others as well as performed at the White House under the Bush and Obama administrations.
