Special Performances at Olney Theatre Center

Animal Farm
by George Orwell

WHEN: Friday, May 3, at 8:00 PM
WHERE: On the Historic Stage

Revolution has broken out on Manor Farm — the animals have claimed their independence! Humans are banished, and the new “Animal Farm” will be a beautiful egalitarian paradise. Pigs, horses, goats, donkeys and dogs — all animals are equal. They can build their new utopia, but can they resist the corruption that led to the human's downfall? From the author of 1984, this chilling and provocative fable is brought to the stage with the focused clarity and spark you’ve come to expect from National Players.

TICKETS: $5 Students (with ID), $10 Adults.



Romeo & Juliet
by William Shakespeare

WHEN: Saturday, May 4, at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM
WHERE: On the Historic Stage

Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day. Love can be a thrilling ride — it bursts the seams of young hearts, making them feel things never felt before… But it can also be a dangerous thing — it can split you open and send you past the point of no return. This year, America’s longest running classical touring company brings you Shakespeare’s most enduring tale, re-imagined, re-invigorated, and irresistibly visceral.

TICKETS: $5 Students (with ID), $10 Adults.
