The Lion in Winter (Play Reading)

Sunday, January 20, 2019 - 7:00 PM

FUSE Play Reading Series returns!

Sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons – The Lion in Winter, by James Goldman, is a modern-day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action – the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom and King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “Every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.

Featuring Steve Snyder, Caitlin Osborne, Cat Rokavec, Mike Waldhier, Tyler Sperrazza, Dylan Henderson, and James Ruth.

Bat Boy (Studio Show Series)

Mar 29, 2019 - Mar 30, 2019

FUSE Productions Studio Show Series Presents BAT BOY
Directed by Abbie Jensen
Venue: Singing Onstage Studio
1108 S. Pugh St.
State College, PA 16801

“In a cave many miles to the south
Lives a boy born with fangs in his mouth.
Sleeping until the fading light,
Flying through bloody dreams;
When he awakes the summer night is filled with screams.”

So begins the tale of BAT BOY, our unlikely hero whose very presence in the aptly named town of Hope Falls is enough to unite the community—against him.

We are thrilled to present this much-beloved cult classic as the first in our Studio Show Series. The entire production team and ensemble are locals who can’t wait to bring this rock-musical to life…and to death.

BAT BOY is the first in our Studio Show Series which is an opportunity for early-career directors to have the opportunity to direct a show in a low-pressure environment and to produce shows that we may not be able to do in our main stage series.

 

A Doll's House, Part 2 (Play Reading)

Sunday, April 7, 2019 - 7:00 PM

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?
