Good Good Trouble on Bad Bad Island
Written by Josh Mikel

Written for young audiences by Endstation’s resident playwright, Josh Mikel, this original play debuted at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2010 and is coming into a school near you. A bad, bad Idol challenges good, good Rosa with a series of impossible tasks — but what happens when she starts doing the impossible?! This wildly inventive adventure finds that sometimes family and good goodness can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Assassins
Book by John Weidman
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

June 22 – July 3
Babcock Theatre, Sweet Briar College
This most American of musicals lays bare the lives of nine infamous historical figures, who forged their way into our history books for their assassinations (or attempted assassinations) of some of our American presidents. Assassins explores the American experience in profound and startling ways, with a musical score by one of the most accomplished musical theatre composers, Stephen Sondheim.

Twelfth Night
Written by William Shakespeare

July 9 -24
Sweet Briar College Grounds
Commonly regarded as Shakespeare’s best comedy, this hysterical play is filled with mistaken identities, romance, and a little cross-dressing. Endstation will stage this hilarious comedy at Sweet Briar’s old train station, utilizing a stunning mountain vista as its backdrop. Each night, audiences will enjoy a beautiful sunset while watching the tale unfold.
