The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people—all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem which follows when the infamous "Slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again—and again. A blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. However the mystery is solved in the nick of time and the "Slasher" unmasked—but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time.</p></div>

When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Along the way, they encounter familiar characters and face their darkest fears. In the end, everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.</p><p><img alt="OTHS_Into-The-Woods_Poster.jpg" src="/dept/finearts/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/OTHS_Into-The-Woods_Poster.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:471px;" /> </p></div>

Set in the Oklahoma territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!</p><p><img alt="Oklahoma Poster.jpg" src="/dept/finearts/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Oklahoma%20Poster.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:723px;" /> </p></div>

Despite Ismene's pleading, Antigone heads off alone to enact the burial writs both for her own glory and for the preservation of her brother's soul. Antigone is caught defying her uncle's orders, and is punished severely despite being engaged to Creon's son Haemon.</p><p> <img alt="FINAL Burial at Thebes Poster42.1.jpg" src="/dept/finearts/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/FINAL%20Burial%20at%20Thebes%20Poster42.1.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:683px;" /></p></div>
