Good Kids
By Naomi Iizuka

Thursdays & Fridays, November 5 & 6 and 12 & 13 at 7pm
Saturdays, November 7 & 14 at 2pm

Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. Something she says she can’t remember.  Something everybody at school is talking about. Was she raped? Did she ask for it? How could those boys do that to her? Or did they? Set in a high school in the American Midwest in a world of Facebook and Twitter, smart phones and YouTube, Good Kids explores a casual sexual encounter gone wrong and its very public aftermath. Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you?

Warning: This production contains discussion of sexual violence which may be triggering to some people.

For both productions listed above:
Advance tickets: $15 general public / $10 students, seniors & UAlbany faculty-staff

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Book by Alex Timbers
Music & Lyrics by Michael Friedman

Wednesday – Friday, March 2-4 at 7pm
Saturday, March 5 at 2pm

$20 general public / $15 students, seniors & UAlbany faculty-staff

This emo-rock musical recreates and reinvents the life of Andrew Jackson, from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to becoming our seventh president. It satirizes America’s original maverick president who kicked British butt, shafted the native inhabitants, and smacked down the Spaniards, all in the name of these United States.
