SUPERSTORY
By Thom Eiser

Performed at the ARENA THEATRE

Join us for this world premiere musical! The Champion is a typical daytime superhero, just trying to make ends meet and keep his city safe. Meanwhile, Fiasco tries to live up to her name by dabbling with explosives and maybe taking a few citizens hostage if the mood strikes her. The only thing they have in common is a desire for an archenemy and they both plan to find one using a new website: NemesisMatch.com. Rooftops, disguises, explosives, intrigue, gadgets. Hold onto your cape-- there's trouble in the City of Greenville!

HENRY V
By William Shakespeare

Performed at the ARENA THEATRE

Four Shakespeare workshops will culminate in a script-in-hand workshop production of this Western classic.  Highlighting Moravian’s 2014-15 IN-FOCUS theme of War and Peace, this play includes some of Shakespeare’s most famous lines and speeches on the topic of war.  King Henry V rallies the English forces for an invasion of France, facing staggering odds.  Despite the rhetoric of victory, this play does not shy away from issues of loss and suffering.

JOURNEY FROM THE EAST"
By Bill George and Christopher Shorr

Performed at the Chinese Harmony Pavilion on the South Bethlehem Greenway

The season culminates with a grand outdoor performance.  Following up on the 2012 Civil War extravaganza “A Resting Place,” Moravian once again partners with Touchstone Theatre on its latest community-based offering, taking theatre to the streets for another epic theatricade. Inspired by Bethlehem’s ever-changing community, and mixing the Chinese classic “Journey to the West” with Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” this culture-mashing spectacle will take place on the South Bethlehem Greenway and at the Chinese Harmony Pavilion.
