During the seven-production season at Sonoma State, curtains rise on young talent in five diverse theater productions and two dance concerts. In How I Learned to Drive, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning drama running October 20–28, a woman revisits her coming-of-age, addressing common motifs such as family strife, birds and bees, and outgrowing her retainer. Productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, which runs November 3–12, and Oklahoma!, running February 7–19, entertain audiences with beloved scripts, and the all-new Super Mega Molten Hot Lava New Play Festival December 8–10 regales audiences with a grab bag of student-written scripts. The farcical whodunit Loot, March 8–17, finishes the theater season with a guffaw. Meanwhile, dancers take the stage during student-choreographed fall dance concerts held December 1–4 and featuring a medley of hip-hop, jazz, and ballet that showcases the body's ability to express grace, rhythm, and a desire for zesty nachos. The spring dance concert, running April 20–28, hosts guest choreographers, who bring an expert eye to craft all-new routines.
