What would happen if a 21st century Alice collided with Lewis Carroll’s legendary Wonderland? This modern retelling of the classic children’s story has all of the characters you know and love, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts. The story is laid out in traditional style, except that Alice is distinctly contemporary, complete with cell phone in hand. Full of references to text messaging and social media, the play imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure. A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humor, modern style, and appeal to both children and adults.To sign up for camp please use the registration form below.
This series of three one-act plays explores what happens when we try to hide our true desires. While written in the early 20th century, each of these plays explores feelings that are familiar to people today. This production will feature both comedy and drama.
Overtones will also be performed as a standalone piece at ICTAFest '23. The festival takes place March 17 and 18 in Oskaloosa. Stay updated here with placing results.
About the Show
World famous painter, Mark Rothko, has just accepted the largest commission ever in art history. Red tells the true to life story of the two year period of Rothko’s career where he is creating his Seagram Murals. His newly hired assistant, Ken, finds himself in a complicated relationship where he learns from the master and eventually becomes Rothko’s equal in many ways. Ken forces Rothko to remember the truths of what art is, and what gives an artist their integrity.
Starlighters II Theatre mourns one of the theatre's founding members!
Many current and former Starlighters thespians are shook up over the recent passing of Robert Furino (Bob).
Bob was heavily involved in set building, directing, acting, developing the Young People's Theatre (YPT) and so much more! Most recently he taught the theatre's acting and director classes alongside Jan Cratsenberg.
He has touched so many lives in the Jones County community and we would like to share those stories with everyone. To share or read memories of Bob please see memories.
The theatre plans to hold a memorial date yet to be determined.
Bob will be with all of us and his memory will live on forever through the ongoing life of the theatre. We ask for your thoughts and prayers to be with his family and the many friends that he made along life's way.
Volunteer as an Usher
It is very important to our patrons to be greeted by a smiling face. It takes a village to put together a production and it doesn't stop at the stage.
Our box office attendees, greeters and Front of house managers are the face of our theatre and so very important to us.
