Click Here to read the press release for Lysistrata.


Athens is at war with Sparta, and the women have had enough. Lysistrata devises a plot to end the war, but for her scheme to work ALL the women MUST agree. Join us in the theatre, join us in the laughs, and maybe even join us on stage! This production of Aristophanes's most-famous play promises to be a loose, bawdy, outrageous circus-romp that is serious in its message to end all war. Mature content.
