Shepaug Dramatics is proud to announce the opening of The Theory of Relativity, a new musical about relationships. From Drama Desk Award nominees Neil Bartram and Brian Hill (The Story of My Life), The Theory of Relativity is a joyous and moving look at our surprisingly interconnected lives.

Created using the real-life experiences and struggles of millennials, The Theory of Relativity is a seemingly unrelated collection of songs, scenes and monologues that make a refreshingly contemporary musical. Whether you’re allergic to cats, in love for the first or tenth time, a child of divorce, a germaphobe, or simply a unique individual, The Theory of Relativity introduces a compelling array of characters experiencing the joys and heartbreaks, the inevitability and the wonder of human connection.

The all student cast and crew will feature a combination of solo and ensemble performances. “It’s been amazing to watch our cast as they prepare for this production. They realize much of the content echoes the real life experiences they are apt to encounter after they graduate from high school and are genuinely connecting to the stories being told.” says Beth Harvison, Musical Director.

Shepaug Dramatics was recently recognized at the Seven Angel’s Theatre’s Halo Awards Ceremony for Best Specialty Ensemble - Here On Who in the Spring 2016 production of Seussical the Musical. “We were thrilled to be recognized with a Halo award and delighted to see many members of that cast bring The Theory of Relativity to the stage this springl” says Beth Harvison, Director of the performing arts program at Shepaug Valley School.

Tickets can be purchased through the Box Office by phone by calling 860-717-2444 or in person at the door. Performances are Friday March 31st, Saturday April 1st and Sunday April 2nd at 7PM. A special matinee performance is scheduled for 2PM at Sunday April 2nd. Tickets are $10. All proceeds are used to support future productions of Shepaug Dramatics.
