2015 - 2016 37th Anniversary Season

Directed by Angie Higgins

This fast moving, hilarious comedy deals with two earnest young men struggling to put out a "protest" magazine, and the all-American girl who moves in next door and manages to send both of them into a romantic tail spin. "…Mr. Simon can do wonders…with casually tossed-off fantasies that pop up from nowhere and whistle as they go by." —NY Times. "…charm, brightness, deft inventiveness and capacity for good, honest hilarity…" —NY Post.

Performances: Oct 8 - Nov 1, 2015

Auditions: August 18 & 19, 2015



A holiday ghost story  by Charles Dickens

This will be Northside’s 33rd production of this holiday event! This stage adaptation of the Dickens classic captures all the power, humor and warmth this ageless tale has to offer. This is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous and kind human being.

Directed by Meredith King

Performances: December 3 - 27, 2015

Auditions: Oct. 19th & 20th, 2015


by Patrick Marber

In Closer, Patrick Marber has created a brilliant exploration into the brutal anatomy of modern romance, where a quartet of strangers meet, fall in love, and become caught up in a web of sexual desire and betrayal. As the London Observer noted, "Closer has wired itself into the cultural vocabulary in a way that few plays have ever done."

(For Mature Audiences Only)

Directed by Bryan Freeman

Performances: Feb 11 - March 6, 2016

Auditions: December 14 & 15, 2015

by Arthur Miller

Eddie is a longshoreman who, for all of his faults, is an admirable man. When two of his wife's Italian cousins are smuggled into this country, he makes room for them in his home. Gratefully, they move in among his wife and teenage niece, whom Eddie has brought up and come to love as a daughter. One of the illegal immigrants is young, handsome and single. He wants to become an American, and he falls in love with his benefactor's niece. A monstrous change creeps up on the kind and loving Eddie. He is violently opposed to this romance and can not see that this opposition is not motivated by a dislike of the boy, but by his own too intense love for his niece. Tragedy soon unfolds in this profoundly absorbing drama.

Directed by Meredith King

Directed by Richard T. Orlando

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens who make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals.
