Tue., Oct. 4–Sat., Oct. 8, 7:30 p.m.
W.M. Turner Auditorium

The emo musical that took Broadway by storm is a raucous and exhilarating look at one of our nation’s founding rock stars.  With a blazing pop score, captivating sex-appeal and wagon-loads of goofy humor, Alex Timbers and Michael Friedman reinvent the life of our seventh president in a way that mischievously reveals how little has really changed in two centuries of America’s often crazy, sometimes brutal, always entertaining political spectacle.  The director of SFA’s smash-hit Spamalot returns to stage a gonzo history lesson as a hard-rock extravaganza. Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior and $7.50 for student/youth. Recommended for mature audiences.

Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).

Travel back to the ragtime era to meet Esther, a master seamstress with a spinster’s life but a poet’s tireless soul. Trapped between high society and its sordid shadow world, her heart is constrained by race, religion and class. Throughout her story's suspenseful turns, her resilience reflects America's enduring hopefulness.  At once delicate and gripping, this award-winning play by Pulitzer Prize-recipient Lynn Nottage is directed by SFA alumnus Thomas Brazzle. Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior and $7.50 for student/youth. Recommended for mature audiences.
