The forced relocation of Japanese-Americans into internment camps through executive action by the President during World War II remains one of the most flagrant violations of civil liberties in American history. HOLD THESE TRUTHS is inspired by the true story of civil rights pioneer Gordon Hirabayashi, an American sociology student who fought against the violation of his family’s constitutional rights. His story is a 50-year journey of standing up for U.S. Constitution and confronting a culture of fear and prejudice.

Two parts vaudeville style comedy, one part classic Hitchcock masterpiece, and a dose of edge-of-your-seat spy thriller, THE 39 STEPS is a raucous whodunit for theatre lovers everywhere. A man with a boring life meets a mysterious woman and is soon embroiled in international espionage culminating in a death-defying finale. This Tony Award-winner is a fast-paced delight packed with nonstop laughs and over 150 characters played by just four actors. The New York Times calls it, “Theatre at its finest!... Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy." THE 39 STEPS, with its wildly inventive stagecraft, is an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure.

New Century Theatre opens its 27th season with an inspired comic romp that feels more timely now than when it was written. Froggy, a British military demolitions expert on loan to the US Army, brings his friend Charlie, a socially awkward and painfully shy civilian, to a remote fishing lodge in Georgia. In a well-meaning attempt to cheer up his friend to ease his fear of conversing with strangers, Froggy tells everyone that Charlie is a foreigner who doesn’t speak a word of English. This one simple premise has made THE FOREIGNER one of the sweetest and most celebrated comedies of all time. The New Yorker said, "I laughed start to finish at one comic surprise after another."
