The Eichelberger season begins with Over the Tavern by Tom Dudzick. Dudzick's comedy about a family who live above their tavern in 1959 Buffalo will run Sept. 4-21. Mark St. Germain's Ears on a Beatle, in which two FBI agents are sent by President Nixon to spy on John Lennon and Yoko Ono, runs Oct. 16-Nov. 2.

The musical Brother Wolf, featuring the Dayton-based dance and music group Rhythm in Shoes, will play Jan. 29-Feb. 15, 2009. Brother Wolf, by Preston Lane with music by Laurelyn Dossett, is a modern re-telling of the classic "Beowolf" and features folk and gospel tunes.

The season will conclude with two acclaimed dramas running back to back.

August Wilson's Tony-nominated Gem of the Ocean, the final work of his ten-play cycle chronicling the African-American experience, runs June 11-28, 2009.

A holiday production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (Dec. 4-21, 2008) will also be included as a separate offer from the five-production subscription season.
