Season Artwork by Mahayla Mounce

Flashback Theater Co. (FbTC) is thrilled to announce their 2024-25 season of productions. This season marks the eleventh for Flashback, an opportunity to not only celebrate all that the company has accomplished, but also look forward to the future. Consisting of three Mainstage productions and one late-night fringe show, you won’t want to miss a thing! Season Tickets for the 2024-25 season will go on sale September 1, 2024,  and purchasing ensures you the best seat in the house for each and every production!

Earlier this year, Flashback Theater moved out of their previous home in Old City Hall. Though the Black Box had become synonymous with Flashback, sold-out productions were quickly outgrowing the intimate space. It’s clear that the company is on its way to even bigger and better things. This season, the company’s administrative operations and box office will be located at 209A E Mount Vernon St., and production locations will be announced on an individual basis. 

Count Dracula by Ted Piller
October 2024
Directed by Sommer Schoch

There’s a new patient at the asylum and a new resident in the castle across the valley, who has been seen only at night. Dr. Seward is desperately trying to keep his asylum and his spinster sister in order, when his ward, Mina, becomes very ill after a visit from the new neighbor. Mina’s fiance Jonathan arrives just in time to try to cure her of the illness before it claims her life. Baffled by the horrific events that have unfolded, Dr. Seward sends for the self-proclaimed ‘Vampire Hunter’ Van Helsing to put this nightmare to bed for good. The wolves howl, the bats fly, the lights flicker … and the legendary story of Count Dracula unfolds.

The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren Gunderson & Margot Melcon
December 2024
Directed by Thomas Alvey

In this sparkling sequel to Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley (produced at Flashback in 2018), Gunderson and Melcon explore the grounds of Jane Austen’s Pemberley Estate (of Pride and Prejudice fame) from a new level: the downstairs servants quarters. To prepare for another busy holiday season, longtime housekeeper Mrs.Reynolds hires a new charge, a witty young maid named Cassie. Working together on holiday preparations, sparks begin to fly between Cassie and the estate’s inventive young footman Brian, but all comes to a screeching halt when a midnight arrival from a forbidden guest threatens to tear the family apart. This charming holiday tale captures the heart of Austen’s beloved heroines with a delightfully fresh perspective that all audiences can enjoy.

The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare
May 2025
Directed by Jenny Denney

Zookeeper Artie Schaughnessy has his sights set on arrogant aspirations of Hollywood stardom. On a hot sunny day in 1965, the day Pope Francis Vl is visiting New York City, Artie and his girlfriend Bunny launch a plan to escape to California by disposing of Artie’s wife Bananas in a mental hospital that has trees with blue leaves. But their plans are more than derailed as the day unwinds into chaos; lost nuns take refuge in Artie’s apartment, Artie’s son Robbie has gone AWOL, and his apartment becomes the site of a political bombing. This outrageously biting farce puts into perspective just how low some are willing to go for fame.

FRINGE: When We Get Good Again by James McLindon
February 2025
Directed by Billy Christopher Maupin

Poor but brilliant college student Tracy needs straight A’s to get into a top law school that will forgive her mountain of academic debt so she can be a lawyer for the poor. With the economic odds stacked against her, she tries to rationalize her job writing term papers for wealthy students. But she’s not sure she can do it. When We Get Good Again explores the current age in which personal integrity seems to be eroding before our eyes, and each day seems to bring new headlines about politicians who lie as naturally as they breathe and parents who buy their child’s admission into the college of their choice. In a world of privilege and deprivation, is it still immoral to cheat in order to level a playing field that is already supposed to be flat?
