Picnic, is a “timeless American classic about the line between restraint and desire. It’s a balmy Labor Day in the American Heartland, and a group of women are preparing for a picnic… but they’ll have to lay a lot on the line before they can lay out the checkered cloths. When a handsome young drifter named Hal (TJ) arrives, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling, especially the beautiful Madge (Sid). When Hal is forced out of town, Madge must decide whether their fleeting encounter is worth changing the course of her life.”

The creative team includes Laura Kieler (Technical Director), Kara Moline (Assistant Director), Grace Bonney (Stage Manager), Blake Murrell (Assistant Stage Manager) and Rebekah Fuller (Sound Manager).
