Catherine Sloper, the shy, awkward daughter of a prominent New York doctor, finds herself caught between the demands of an emotionally distant father and the attention of a passionate young suitor. Should she listen to her heart despite the objections of Dr. Sloper who threatens to disinherit her? Set in 1849, The Heiress is based on the classic Henry James novel Washington Square and became an Academy Award-winning film in 1949 starring Olivia de Havilland and Montgomery Clift. In 2012, a revival of The Heiress opened on Broadway starring the acclaimed actress Jessica Chastain. This dramatic and suspenseful play features one of the great female roles ever written for the stage.

All Center Stage Theatre performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.

One by one, Berenger’s friends and neighbors are being turned into rhinoceroses.  Lonely, fearful, isolated and unhinged, he must either join the herd or risk the consequences of resistance. In this hilarious and absurd tale by Eugene Ionesco, Rhinoceros reflects the power, attractiveness and chaos of the collective in its most destructive and animalistic form, as well as the strength of individuality and the resilience of the human spirit.

All Center Stage Theatre performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.
