      Hand To God
    • Tuesday, April 25, 2017
    • The good children of Cypress, Texas are taught to obey the Bible in order to evade Satan's hand, but all hell breaks loose when Jason's puppet at the Christian Puppet Ministry presents a shockingly sinister agenda of its own. In this hilarious and lightning-paced comedy, a foul-mouthed sock puppet named Tyrone soon teaches those around him that a person's darkest urges and desires fit like a glove, and Jason must re-define himself before the ventriloquist becomes the dummy. This irreverent Tony Award-nominated Broadway comedy hit inspires chills and chuckles as it unravels the fragility of faith.

      Koresh Dance Company: Sense of Human/Koresh Kouture
    • Thursday, May 4, 2017
    • The Koresh Dance Company will reprise the repertoire favorite "Sense of Human," choreographed by artistic director Ronen Koresh, with musical collaboration by Nick Kendall, Greg Smith and Karl Mullen. "Sense of Human" is a search for human emotion in the purest, rawest, most guttural state. The work delves into themes of perception, focusing on how we as people choose to wear carefully chosen facades that disguise, redirect and hide the basic yearnings by which we exist. "Sense of Human" focuses on our obsessiveness to portray a desired self-image and how when we finally remove those masks, our true identity is revealed. In the piece, Koresh uses "command of characterization and solid storytelling" to connect the dancers with audiences. They'll give four performances; the last one, on May 7, will be part of "Koresh Kouture," a fundraising evening that also includes fashions, art, music, hors d'oeuvres, wine beer and whiskey tastings.
