Although Leeward Theatre is currently undergoing a major renovation, the theatre is not completely dark. Leeward Theatre’s reduced 43rd season features a burlesque show, improv comedy, plantation plays and more.
Almost all of the productions are currently scheduled to happen in the new “Alternate Space” (formerly room AM-101).

Set in the style of the biggest silent movie stars of the day such as Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton, On The Spot’s: Hush captures all the drama and nostalgia of the silent movie era, with strong characters, physical comedy and live musical accompaniment.

The spring 2018 Semester of Shakespeare will feature the beautiful and controversial Merchant of Venice. In this lively comedy of love and money in sixteenth-century Venice, Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio’s business falters, repayment becomes impossible—and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well (except of course for Shylock).
