By Y York, Adapted from the story by Rudyard KiplingRiki

Are you ready for some family friendly fun at The Circuit Playhouse? Join us for a special production of The Garden of Rikki Tikki Tavi on February 20th! 

This clever adaption of the Kipling classic is a free-flowing,
comic brawl! Darzee, the diva, is incensed when Rikki Tikki Tavi washes up in Darzee’s pristine garden. Darzee and her friend, Chuchu, pull out the stops attempting to run off the pesky mongoose, until they see Nag, cobra and despot, run in fear when he discovers that a mongoose is loose. This endearing comedy is about sharing and cooperation.

The Circuit Playhouse
51 S. Cooper St.

Playhouse on the Square

black treble clef





Conceived and Adapted by Lee Breuer

Music by Bob Telson
Lyrics by Bob Telson and Lee Breuer

Based on Sophocles’ Greek myth Oedipus and set in a contemporary African-American gospel church service, this production will move and thrill you with electrifying vocals. Scorned and aged, Oedipus arrives at Colonus where he will die as fate foretold. But before his demise, he must tell his side of events. His journey toward truth, self-understanding, and forgiveness comes with soaring songs and an ending to lift the soul.
