What would happen to the Lost Boys if Peter Pan were to abandon Neverland? TRIBE, a new play written by Santa Clara University alum Alec Forrest Brown, uses fast-paced modern language and physical comedy to explore the meaning of adventure, friendship, and responsibility. Join Niles, Slaine, Curt, Tanner, Mart, and Binny as they fly, fight, and stumble through the world of childhood to the heartbreaking inevitability of adulthood. "Assemble, the guard of Neverland. I'll teach your body to run on steam, I'll teach your brain to run on dreams..." (Co-directed by Drew E. Kemp and Anne Yumi Kobori).

Liberace! (by Brent Hazelton for Milwaukee Rep). John Leslie portrays "Mr. Showmanship" in this one-man show, containing narration about The Man, The Myth, The Music, and including plenty of solo piano music (classical and popular styles) and fabulous costuming. Lee's story is full of humor, cultural history, and pathos. (The play contains some mild profanity.)
