Theatre Fairfield Season Announcement


As we wrap up our finals, here's something to look forward to: another great season of plays from Theatre Fairfield. The Theatre Program faculty runs TF on a professional theatre model, preparing our students for life after graduation. And we do shows that matter to you! 



a drama by Theresa Rebeck

based on Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House

This contemporary adaptation sheds a fresh new light on Nora's struggle to reclaim herself. In the tony suburbs of Connecticut, Nora's children are cared for by a nanny, her husband's best friend is in love with her, and her stifling marriage is crumbling. Nora also has a secret, the revelation of which irrevocably sets her life on a new course.

Directed by Jan Mason

The Lightning ThiefThe Percy Jackson Musical

Book by Joe Tracz, Music & Lyrics by Rob Rokicki

This is a dynamic rock musical adaptation of the novel by Rick Riordan. As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly-discovered powers he can't control, a destiny he doesn't want, and a mythology textbook's worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus's lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he has to find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the thief. He must travel to the Underworld and back; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. 

Directed by Dr. Sean Edgecomb

April 17-21, 2024
