MELANCHOLY PLAY: A CHAMBER MUSICAL: 
Written by Sarah Ruhl and Todd Almond
Directed and Music Directed by Justin P. Cowan

Tilly is a bank teller, and she’s depressed. She’s so beautifully, alluringly melancholic that everyone she meets falls in love with her, including her therapist, her hairdresser and her tailor. But what happens when she stops being so sad? In two lyrical, poetic parts, Melancholy Play: a chamber musical offers a whimsical take on the human quest for love and connection. This Blackbox musical runs from October 29th through November 7th.

Please note that audience members must be masked at all times inside the Visual and Performing Arts Center without exception. In addition, we are enforcing 3 ft. social distancing, and as such, seating is extremely limited. Because of the reduced capacity of our theatre, we are asking all patrons to purchase their ticket in advance on Eventbrite. Shows are likely to sell out, so do not wait to purchase at the box office before the show. Tickets are subject to higher charges at the door as opposed to online. There will be no exceptions made to socially distanced seating.

The role of Tilly is double cast. Please see the performance schedule below:
