Based on The Once and Future King by T.H. White
Thrill to the music and romance of a faraway, magical time. King Arthur sets out to change his country with knights, round tables, and chivalry. But Guinevere, his Queen, and Lancelot, his most trusted friend, cannot resist the passion drawing them together. With a brilliant new book, this classic hit uncovers the love story at the heart of this Broadway treasure.
Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
By Ken Ludwig
Figure out whodunit. The male heirs of the Baskerville family are being murdered one by one, so Sherlock Holmes must work to crack the curse before it dooms the new Sir Baskerville. Thrill to the intrigue and give over to laughter as five actors play 40 quirky characters following leads, unraveling clues, hitting dead-ends, and zigzagging with the story all the way to the shocking conclusion.
By Mike Wiley
Find hidden history. We all know the story of the four young men who sat down at the Woolworth’s lunch counter, but now go deeper as an acclaimed NC playwright celebrates unsung champions of the 1960 sit-ins. From Bennet Belles to the women who worked behind the counter, see history from an untold angle in this world premiere Greensboro story.
By Preston Lane with original music by Laurelyn Dossett
Take a journey on the wild side. Nowadays in the Blue Ridge, old ways have given over to the 21st century, but when a county sheriff shoots a wild animal in the woods near one family’s home, dark secrets threaten to spill out. The creators of Brother Wolf and many other Triad Stage favorites spin a tale of intrigue, love and the wonders of change.
A Doll’s House, Part 2
By Lucas Hnath

A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Celebrate the season with a miser and some ghosts as this holiday favorite returns for a winter time ghost story of hope and redemption.

Thrill to the chills and give in to the joy of A Christmas Carol, returning for its 8th season in Winston-Salem.
