- In co-production with Cornell College; "The Diary of Anne Frank," by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, adapted by Wendy Kesselman, from October 22 - November 8.

-  "Walking the Wire: Holiday Tales" from November 19 - 22. Whether it's Christmas or Kwanzaa, Hanukkah or Ramadan, Mardi Gras or Cinco de Mayo - you'll hear holiday monologues from playwrights across the country and right here in Iowa.

 - Don't miss a rapturously funny play by Deborah Zoe Laufer when Riverside Theatre presents "End Days," January 29 - February 21.  This story combines a Goth girl, her born-again mom, her post-9/11 depressed dad, Jesus and Stephen Hawking.

-  Sean Christopher Lewis's one-man show, "Killadelphia: City of Numbers," March 5 - 14.  This piece offers an "in the trenches" look at crime, incarceration and the road to redemption.  Contains adult language.

-  "Mary's Wedding," playing April 1 -18, is an exhilarating story of first love by Stephen Massicotte.  Don't miss this love letter to the power of memory, hope, and innocent dreams.
