The story:  As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul mate Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge—a world she might not live to see. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.

Failure: A Love Story

By Philip Dawkins
Directed by Ron Newell
Auditions: Tuesday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 8. 2023
Show dates: May 12 – June 4, 2023

The story:  By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead — expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual’s successes or failures.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you at auditions.
