STRICTLY NO ADMITTANCE ONCE THE SHOW HAS COMMENCED 

Tickets: Adult $20, Concession $15

By Peter Shaffer

Equus is the potent story of psychiatrist Martin Dysart seeking to understand the religious and sexual mystery that leads Alan Strang, a seventeen-year-old boy, to be under the psychiatric care of Dysart. Both force each other to question the legitimacy of their passion, or lack thereof. ...
In this play, Alan’s secret worship brings him to a state of ecstasy most people can only dream of achieving in their lives bogged down by convention and social constraints. During his ritual midnight rides, naked in a field surrounded by mist, his act of worship to the horse god Equus, he encounters a sense of liberation.

Dysart, who is ensnared by society, realises the barrenness of his life, but it is only when faced with a passionate worshipper, Alan, that he understands what he is lacking. Equus' themes of worship, sacrifice and ritual reveal that no single act, even the most horrific, can be judged solely in black and white, but is the catalyst to examine the complexity of the grey areas in between. Here, in this gripping psychodrama, both men face the truth about their situation.

STRICTLY NO ADMITTANCE ONCE THE SHOW HAS COMMENCED 

Tickets: Adult $25, Concession $20

By Stephen Schwartz & John-Michael Tebelak

Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time.

Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, "Day By Day." As the cast performs "Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All For The Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side," the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.

Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, GODSPELL is a ground-breaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.
