Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA is a contemporary musical take on Verdi’s grand classic tale of the love between Radames, an Egyptian commander and Aida, an enslaved Nubian princess – a love that condemns them to death, but ultimately rises above the vast racial and cultural differences between their two warring nations.

The Players' Guild of Hamilton

Directed by:
Willard Boudreau

A nineteen-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case – until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry men.
