A hit in the West End and a popular show on Broadway starring Kathleen Turner, Terry Johnson’s adaptation of The Graduate brings the inspired movie of the Sixties vividly to life on stage. Benjamin Braddock (Tomer Oz), a recent college graduate and prodigal son, returns home and promptly becomes embroiled in an affair with the wife of his father’s business partner, one Mrs. Robinson (Constance Witman), but soon finds himself falling in love with her daughter, Elaine (Emily Karel).
Directed by Todd Hunter, The Graduate also features renowned Seacoast actors Don Goettler, Matthew Schofield, Deirdre Hickock-Bridge, Robert Carroll, Carol S. Davenport, Chris Ferrill, and Heidi Gagné. Lighting and Set Design by Quentin Stockwell.
Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 3 p.m.
