SART's 2016 Season
In her Amherst, Massachusetts home, the reclusive ninteenth-century poet, Emily Dickinson recollects her past though her work, her diaries, and letters, and a few encounters with significant people in her life. William Luce's classic play shows us both the pain and joy of Dickinson's secluded life. The Belle of Amherst is an audience favorite at SART and we are thrilled to have Susan King join us for this one week limited run.
The Student Interns of the Southern Appalachian
American musical based on a June 23, 1992 Weekly World News story about a half-boy, half-bat, dubbed “Bat Boy", who grew up living in a cave. Bat Boy learns to speak from his adoptive family, yearns for acceptance and tries to join society, only to face hatred and violence from a town that fears him and jealous rage from his foster father.
The book deals with serious themes (such as hypocrisy, acceptance, forgiveness, racism, revenge and scapegoating), but often punctures the most serious moments with slapstick, surreallism, camp-horror and irony. The show also contains religious over tones.
