The Pit - O'Kane 37

In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other – the chance to return to life.  A funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived!  An Alternate College Theatre production, directed by Blake Sheridan.

Prior Performing Arts Center Luth Concert Hall

A remounting of Lynn Kremer and Shirish Korde’s extraordinary music-theatre piece, previously produced at Holy Cross in 1991 and 1998.  RASA is a large-scale multi-media production yet, as The American Record Guide has written, it is “remarkable in its beauty and subtlety . . . of considerable musical richness.”  A young woman escapes her native India for America after her fiancé is killed, relocating first in Manhattan, then in the heartland, and each time reinventing her identity.  This is a story of startling metamorphoses and unexpected resurrections.
