They will be presenting Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream on January 31 and The Scarlet Letter on February 1.

The mission of its founder, Father Gilbert V. Hartke, O.P., a prominent arts educator and then head of the drama department at Catholic University of America was to stimulate young peoples higher thinking skills and imaginations by presenting classical plays in surprisingly accessible ways.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in Marian Auditorium. Tickets are available at the door only and admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students.
