  “Thy friendship makes us fresh 
And doth beget new courage in our breasts.”
– William Shakespeare, Henry VI

Dear Friends,  

The wait is over, and I’m excited to finally share Taproot Theatre Company’s 48th season with you! 2024 will be filled with Friends & Families bringing out the very best in each other. Marvel as the power of friendship accomplishes the impossible in The Book of Will and Sister Act. Revel in the extraordinariness of a seemingly ordinary family in How to Write a New Book for the Bible. And sit back and enjoy the mystery of Sherlock Holmes and the Precarious Position, while witnessing one of the most recognizable friendships in literature. 

We designed this season to lift you up because if we’ve learned one thing in the last few years, it’s that we truly are “better together” when surrounded by our Friends & Families. 

See you at the theatre!

Karen Lund
Producing Artistic Director


2024 Season Plays

The Book of Will

By Lauren Gunderson

An unforgettable true story! In an act of undying devotion, Shakespeare’s best friends race to do the impossible: Publish every play he wrote. This irreverent, witty, and surprisingly modern tale celebrates friendship, found family, and an unselfish act that changed the world forever. From the author of Silent Sky and the Christmas at Pemberley series.
Jan 24–Feb 24, 2024

 

How to Write a New Book for the Bible 

By Bill Cain 

Playwright and Jesuit priest Bill Cain moves home to care for his strong-spirited mother. Through his eyes we witness his long-dead father, a brother coming to terms with his service in Vietnam, baseball games, and birthday pumpkins. In this bracingly personal and frankly funny play, Cain shows us why the details in our lives matter.

Mar 20–Apr 20, 2024 

 

 

Sherlock Holmes and the Precarious Position

By Margaret Raether • Based on the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Corsets, crowns, and a missing royal jewel set the stage for a battle of wits in this tale of deception, suspense, and deduction. When the bookish Perkins sisters approach Sherlock Holmes with a case, they unveil a theatrical scheme of encyclopedic proportions. 4 actors play multiple characters and the mystery turns deadly. 

 

May 15–Jun 15, 2024

Sister Act 

Music by Alan Menken 
Lyrics by Glenn Slater 
Book by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner 

A feel-good musical comedy like “nun” other! Delores dreams of fame and fortune, but after witnessing a murder she lands in protective custody. Being disguised as a nun can’t cramp her style, and soon she’s inspired the whole choir. 

Featuring original music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Little Mermaid, Aladdin)! 

Jul 10–Aug 10, 2024 

 

My Lord, What a Night 

By Deborah Brevoort 

Based on the real-life friendship between famed contralto Marian Anderson and physicist Albert Einstein.
Marian Anderson is denied lodging after delighting a sold-out Princeton audience. When her long-time fan, Albert Einstein, invites her to stay in his home, the two begin a lifelong friendship. Watch as they grapple with their responsibility as an artist and scientist in a world plagued by racial segregation and a looming world war.
