Freud’s Last Session

Tennessee - Cookeville Performing Arts Center
Written by Mark St. Germain, Directed by Matthew Wilson
This show centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud who invites the young, rising Oxford Don C.S. Lewis to his home in London. Freud and Lewis clash about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud took his own life.


I Don’t Want to Talk About It

Alabama - The Whole Backstage Theatre
Written by Bradley Hayward, Directed by Kelleybrooke Brown
Being a teenager is hard, and nobody wants to talk about it. Confronting the daily challenges of growing up, this series of monologues and scenes offers a look at a multitude of issues including dealing with parents who just don’t get it, rumors, bullying and suicide.


Black Sash

Mississippi - WINGS Performing Arts
Written by Sarah Grammar, Tonya Hays, Emily Overmyer, and Sarah Pendleton, Directed by Tonya Hays
Black Sash is an original production written and researched by students celebrating the work of the Black Sash women’s organization and their fight against apartheid. The production centers on the efforts of these upper/middle class women as they fought the injustices of apartheid. The production takes us on a journey from 1955 through 1990 and Nelson Mandela’s release.


The SantaLand Diaries

Mississippi – Tupelo Community Theatre
Written by David Sedaris, Adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello, Directed by Tom Booth
The play is a brilliant evocation of what a slacker's Christmas must feel like when he decides to become a Macy's elf during the holiday crunch.


The Fantasticks
Alabama - Wetumpka Depot Players
Music by Harvey Schmidt and Lyrics by Tom Jones, Directed by Kristy Meanor
A legend in its own time, The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in history! This is a simple romantic comedy about a boy, a girl, their meddling fathers and the wall that divides them. A musical crafted with charming simplicity, captivating music, and whimsy.
