Although we’d like nothing more than to see you all in the theater, we recognize that the Coronavirus has other plans. However, we are still committed to sharing the theater with our dedicated patrons, and have made the move to monthly online shows. Click on 2020 Season to read more, or scroll down to see our upcoming production. 

 
 
 

Our next production will be South of Cape Horn, written by George Faulkner and directed by Tylar Jahumpa. 

 This online show is set to air on Friday, November 20th at 7pm. Tickets are available by clicking on the green button below.

 
 South of Cape Horn is a radio play, originally produced by the Cavalcade of America series, and first aired in December 1949. This radio play tells the story of the sighting of Antarctica by Captain Nathaniel Brown Palmer, a 21 year old seaman who was born and raised in Stonington, Connecticut.  He set sail with a small crew and sailed the furthest south anyone had been before, ultimately laying eyes on the Antarctic continent. The original broadcast featured Mickey Rooney in the role of Captain Nat. 

 The cast are all based on real historical figures. For more information on Captain Nat and the discovery of Antarctica, visit the Stonington Historical Society at www.stoningtonhistory.org
