Past 2016-2017 Events

  • A Brief History of the Earth and Everything In It...

    A Brief History of the Earth and Everything In It...

    April 6-8 & 13-15, 2017
    written by Dave Rabinow, co-directed by Stephanie Burlington Daniels and Courtney Roque '17
    A Brief History (ABHOTE) is the story of a school besieged by the forces of right-wing Christian fundamentalism. A small cadre of third-graders seek to subvert the paradigm by joining forces and channeling the most powerful force in the universe: the song-and-dance musical! Can Derek Palomino and his cohorts carve out a future for themselves based on reason and inclusion? Or will old white men continue to set the agenda, as they have for...well, pretty much forever? ABHOTE reminds us that, when things look bleak, creativity and intelligence will always trump the powers that be. Tickets: $10 general, $5 with a Wheaton ID & seniors. For information and reservations, contact the Watson Box Office at 508-286-3575 or by email at boxoffice@wheatoncollege.edu.

  • One-Minute Plays: Our Response

    One-Minute Plays: Our Response

    October 22, 2016
    This special presentation of plays created by the Wheaton community explores ideas of equity, inclusion and race. It reflects the college’s collaboration with Trinity Repertory Theatre, Community College of Rhode Island, University of Rhode Island and the Southside Cultural Center with the City of Providence to create a body of locally made one-minute plays. The effort is inspired by the nationwide theatre initiative Every 28 Hours. Wheaton’s plays were developed in a workshop facilitated by One-Minute-Play Festival’s Dominic D’Andrea and Trinity Rep’s Joe Wilson, Jr. Join us for this special evening when theater is activism and our community takes the stage.
