Theta Alpha Phi presents Smokey Joe's Café - The Songs of Leiber of Stoller
Words and Music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

Performances: October 4 and 5, 2013 at 8 p.m.

Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock 'n' roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture.  In an idealized 50s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions.  Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, Smokey Joe's Café isn't just great pop music—it's compelling musical theatre.  

Presented by Theta Alpha Phi, in conjunction with DeBaun Center
Directed by David Zimmerman; Choreographed by Katherina Gaccione; Musical Directed by Joel Condon

Stevens Dramatic Society presents You Can't Take It With You 
  by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Performances: November 7, 2013 at 9 p.m., November 8, 2013 at 8 p.m. and 
  November 9, 2013 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Presented by the Stevens Dramatic Society, this Pulitzer Prize winning comedic play focuses on the Sycamore family who appear mad, but then you realize if they are mad, then the rest of the world is even madder.  In contrast to the delightful Sycamores are the unhappy Kirbys.  Tony Kirby falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore house on the wrong evening.  This comedy would not be complete without the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press in the parlor; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector who tells him he doesn't believe in income tax.
