Back by popular demand! After an oversold 2013 show, TWN is thrilled to have Corky Laing return to the Nantucket stage with new material. Under The Rock continues to recount his life in words and music along with his unique drum style. Corky takes us with him on a humorous journey that started half a century ago in Nantucket. His one-man show chronicles some of the most entertaining and dramatic highlights of his career, reflecting on the numerous artists with whom he recorded and performed along the way: Levon Helm, Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, Alice Cooper, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Bruce, John and Yoko, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and more.

This exuberant, groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize winning musical tells the love story of Laurey, a spirited farm girl, and Curly, the cowboy who loves her. Oklahoma tackles class issues between farmers and cowmen in the old west as the characters struggle to find hope, love and the fulfillment of the “American Dream.” The show contains many popular songs such as O, What a Beautiful Morning, Kansas City and I Can’t Say No. Oklahoma is the first collaboration written by composer Richard Rogers and lyricist, Oscar Hammerstein II. It is one of their most popular musicals and is guaranteed to raise the spirits of those who see it.

Cultures clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair.

Back by popular demand and with an extended run, a staged reading presented in collaboration with the Nantucket Historical Association. 

It takes a fool or perhaps a genius to adapt the great American novel for the stage—but Orson Welles was a bit of both. America’s most celebrated stage and screen director chased Moby Dick for several years, finally capturing him in Moby Dick Rehearsed, first performed in 1955 at the Duke of York Theatre in London. TWN’s rendition, presented under the skeleton of the great whale in the NHA’s Whaling Museum, tells the classic tale of Captain Ahab and his quest to find and destroy the creature that bit off his leg. It is a play that evokes the conflicting emotions of his crew, the sights and smells of Nantucket harbor, the great whaling ship Pequod, and the vastness of the ocean itself.
