Front Row Theatre Company is very excited to announce its 2015-2016 season!

NSO Show: Ordinary Days
Music and lyrics by ADAM GWON
Directed by NATE STAUFFER
Produced by HALEY MANKIN
When Deb loses her most precious possession–the notes to her graduate thesis–she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.

Fall Show: Tribes
Book by NINA RAINE
Directed by MIRA TAICHMAN
Produced by JESSICA SCHWARZ
Tribes is the story of a highly dysfunctional family, complete with a crassly inappropriate father, a mother who tries to keep him in check, and three twenty-something-year-old kids who are stuck living begrudgingly at home. The family’s chaotic balance is upset, however, when their deaf youngest son Billy brings home Sylvia, a young women from a deaf family who is going deaf herself. Sylvia’s background, lifestyle, and worldview force Billy’s family to confront a series of uncomfortable questions: How do we define our identities? Why do people feel that they are insurmountably different from one another? How do we preserve the unique, precious traits that set us each apart without letting them become justifications for isolation, exclusion, and ignorance of others? Through its humorous but stingingly honest script, Tribes forces us all to examine how we understand ourselves in relation to the people around us—strangers and loved ones alike.

Winter Show: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Book by TOM STOPPARD
Directed by SARAH ZEROD
Produced by GREG OLBERDING
In a world where heads always wins and pirates can happen to anyone, this fabulously inventive, existentialist tragicomedy thrusts two of Shakespeare’s most incidental characters into the limelight. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have been summoned to Elsinore by the king. Their purpose: to glean what afflicts Hamlet. The intrepid, if somewhat bewildered, travelers make their journey, meeting a ragtag group of players along the way. Unsure of both the game and the rules, the until-now-unsung heroes are destined for a more chilling end.

Spring Show: From Up Here
Book by LIZ FLAHIVE
Directed by ESTHER COHEN
Produced by CARSON HOUSE
Kenny Barrett did something that has everyone worried. He wishes he could just make it through the rest of his senior year unnoticed, but that’s going to be hard since he has to publicly apologize to his entire high school. At home, his mother is struggling with a rocky start to her second marriage and a surprise visit from her estranged sister. A new play about a family limping out the door in the morning and coming home no matter what.
