By David Greig
Dates: 10/5 & 10/12 at 11am
Recommended for Grades 9-12
“Being produced for the first time by an American team, Dunsinane is a captivating, imagined sequel to Shakespeare’s Macbeth that explores one man's attempt to restore peace in a country consumed by war. Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, the English army has swept in, killed the tyrant and claimed Scotland's seat of power. But efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Fierce one minute and funny the next, Scottish playwright David Greig's extraordinary ability to infuse a dark story with rich humor results in a lively, vital examination of power—illuminating uncanny parallels between Scotland's medieval and present-day political landscapes around the world. Directed by MTC Artistic Director Jasson Minakdakis, and in partnership with Tamalpais High School’s Conservatory Theatre Ensemble”

In an intimate, epic new musical built with sweeping songs, urgent conversations about equality, and truly human heroines, we come to know these iconic Justices at the height of their power. We discover how they inspire, challenge, and propel the next generation of changemakers in American jurisprudence, setting a new course for our country and the world. ”

WHERE DID WE SIT ON THE BUS?
By Brian Quijada
Dates: 5/17 & 5/24 at 11AM
Recommended for Grades 8-12 *This show contains mild Language
“During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latina child raises her hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” Her teacher can’t answer the question. Infused with Latin rhythms, hip-hop, and live-looping, this solo exploration follows that kid into adulthood, as she navigates growing up in an immigrant family, her identity as a first-generation American, and what the world might look like for her children. Directed by Matt Dickson and performed by the dynamic Mexican-American actor, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and intersectional feminist, Satya Chávez, Where Did We Sit on the Bus? is a high-octane tour-de-force theatrical experience that examines what it means to be Latiné in America”
