“Lonely, I’m Not”: By Paul Weitz. Synopsis: “At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate ‘ninja,’ and had a nervous breakdown. It’s been four years since he’s had a job or a date, and he’s decided to give life another shot. ‘Lonely, I’m Not’ is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets Heather, an ambitious, sightless young businesswoman who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.” Lab Theatre.

With its pastoral setting and humorous devices of mistaken identity and missed opportunities, ‘As You Like It’ promises to be delightful entertainment for all. Sawyer Theatre. Run dates: Nov. 7-13.
“Eventually Ever After”: Annual Children’s Show, written, directed and choreographed by VSU Theatre & Dance’s Sarah Wildes Arnett.
