This year we are pleased to present six shows for audiences of all ages. Whether you like comedy, drama, musicals or interactive theatre, VHS has something for everyone.

 
 

Irena's Vow is a play recounting the story of Irena, a Polish nurse who, at the risk of her ife, saved 12 Jews during World War II in German-occupied Poland.  The play was written by Dan Gordon, based on conversations he had with Irene Gut-Opdyke.  Based on a remarkable true story, Irena Gut Opdyke shows how a humanitarian spirit can triumph over evil and devastating tragedy. Determined to help 12 Jewish workers, she decides to shelter them in the safest place she can think of: the basement of the German commandant's house. Over the next two years, Irena uses her wit, humor, and courage to hide her friends until the end of the German occupation, concealing them in the midst of countless Nazi parties, a blackmail scheme, and even the birth of a child. Her story is truly inspiring.  (NOTE:  contains mature themes)

 


INTO THE WOODS, JANUARY 18-20, 2018

"Once upon a time" is the beginning of many a bedtime story.  It is also the beginning of the 1987 Broadway Musical Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim (music & lyrics) and James Lapine (book & direction). In a twist of genius they combine the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and the newly invented Baker and His Wife into a story of deceit, dreams fulfilled and broken, wishes, deception, magic and almost happily ever after. - Sondheim.com
