The man of the house has lost his mind. Orgon has been taken for a ride by the devious Tartuffe, who charms his way into his household and schemes to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and run off with the family’s fortune. Will he get wise to the con before it’s too late? Molière spins faux-religious piety and hypocrisy into high comedy in this hilarious and biting satire, one of the world’s great plays.
Considered by many to be Molière’s strongest and funniest work, Tartuffe is a raging romp of a farce produced in partnership with Lipscomb's French Department.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz ( Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak), and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. Produced in partnership with the Lipscomb University School of Music and featuring a band made up of students from our Contemporary Music Program, we are excited to bring some authentic Nashville sound to this production.
November 2, 3, 9, and 10 at 7:30pm; November 4, 11 at 2:30pm in Collins Alumni Auditorium.
When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
