Joan's family’s farm is in trouble, and it’s up to her to help them by working in the Lowell mills. Though the work is hard, Joan quickly makes friends with the other workers, and starts to experience an independence she never thought possible. But when the mill owners unjustly decide to lower the workers’ wages, Joan is faced with a difficult choice; save her family from poverty or stand with her friends for what she knows to be right?

IS NOTHING SACRED?! IS ANYONE SAFE?! Characters from classic literature clash in a hail of flying elbows and body slams at Fight Night: Last Classic Standing. A shadowy fighting tournament draws competitors from Anne of Green Gables to Frankenstein's Monster looking to keep their place in the canon— but just who's running this tournament? And why? Fight Night will feature knuckle-bruising fight choreography as well as an original script developed by Ned Baker and Alejandro Tey. Dive fist-first into the rabbit hole to discover a spectacular evening of action, mystery, and enough chaos to turn your assigned reading list on its head forever.

This new adaptation of Voltaire’s outrageous satire tells the story of the young and naïve optimist, Candide, and the absurd hardships that challenge his innocent outlook on life.

After being banished from the kingdom of Westphalia, Candide and his fellow school-aged companions begin a journey through the world encountering wealth, wisdom, and nearly unending woe as Candide desperately tries to reunite with his love, Cunégonde. Is everything that happens really for the best? Is this really the best of all possible worlds? And do we really wear pants just because we have legs? Find out in Candide.
