  “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 seemingly ordinary families in How to Write a New Book for the Bible and A Raisin in the Sun. 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 

Families are funny. When Bill Cain moves home to help his failing mother, he encounters the unexpected humor and mystery of his family. Amidst doctor appointments and baseball games he begins to see how seemingly ordinary details become the life-giving rituals that shape our lives. For anyone who treasures the beauty in their imperfect family.

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 

 

Title image for sister act with a colorful disco-meets-cathedral vibe.

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 

 

Title art for A Raisin in the Sun featuring a line drawing of a city street on a sunny day.

A Raisin in the Sun 

By Lorraine Hansberry 

An American classic! A life insurance payout provides a path for Lena Younger to move her Black family from their cramped apartment to an affordable home in a historically white neighborhood. But racial intolerance threatens to turn their American dream into heartbreak. This 1959 masterpiece “changed American theater forever” (New York Times) and continues to resonate in our hearts today.
