We are so excited to announce our re-staging of “Promise,” on October 17 & 18 at Historic Pleasant Home in Oak Park, IL. We’re redesigning Promise to fit into the beautiful rooms of Pleasant Home and audience members will be able to walk from room to room and see the entire dance.
Promise focuses on the women, images and psychological themes found in John Steinbeck’s 1952 novel, “East of Eden.” The Company was invited to present Promise at Pleasant Home after our highly successful production at Ruth Page Center in March 2015. Check back here in early September for casting, live music accompaniment and other events related to this production of “Promise.” Click here for info about Promise.
