This exciting world-premiere production features Provision Theater Ensemble Member Rod Armentrout and is Adapted and Directed by Provision's Founding Artistic Director Timothy Gregory.

Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie's appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life. Featuring Provision Theater Ensemble Member Brad Armacost.

imgThis world-premeire adaptation of the perennial children's favorite Heidi tells the story of a lively orphan girl who goes to live with her bitter grandfather in a little hut high in the Alps. Soon she is happy and healthy, leading a carefree life with her grandfather, her new friend, Peter, and the goats on the Alm. But Heidi's happiness is short-lived when she is sent to stay with a rich city family as a companion for a sick girl, Klara. This new adaptation reveals the transformative power of a little girl's ability to shine light into the lives of everyone around her--even those with a crippled spirit or a hardened heart.
