THe Geneva Kent Center for the Arts

We have a home! In February of 2023, Alchemy took up residence in the old Geneva Kent Elementary School. Through the generous help of local businesses, and the blood, sweat, and tears of community and company volunteers, Alchemy's Geneva Kent Center for the Arts is open for business! Our mission to provide an accessible space for local artisans is well on its way. We're beyond excited to show you our new black box theatre, costume and props shops, dance studio, Linda's Lounge, and more. If you or your company need a venue for performing arts classes, rehearsals, or shows please don't hesitate to get in touch!

WV Shakes on the Road: Hamlet

Coming to Schools This Fall!
Director: Mike Murdock

A special one-act adaptation of perhaps the greatest play ever written – William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of HAMLET, Prince of DENMARK. Touring to schools fall '24.

Nunsense

September 20, 2024 - September 29, 2024
Director: Helen Freeman

Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken, a one-time missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France, discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent with her tainted vichyssoise while they were off playing bingo with a group of Maryknolls. Upon discovering the disaster, Mother Superior had a vision in which she was told to start a greeting card company to raise funds for the burials. The greeting cards were an enormous success and, thinking there was plenty of money, the Reverend Mother bought a lot of very expensive electronic equipment for the convent, leaving her with no money in the kitty to pay for the last four burials. With the deceased nuns on ice in the deep freeze, they decide to stage a variety show in the Mount Saint Helen's School auditorium, where the school is currently performing the musical GREASE!, to raise the necessary amount. Hilarity ensues.

Cheerleaders vs. Aliens

October 11, 2024 - October 20, 2024
Director: Cindy Westbrook

When aliens invade a small town and abduct the Greenville High School football team in order steal their “brain jelly,” it’s up to some cheerleaders, their soccer star friend, a self-proclaimed sci-fi nerd, and “the new girl” to save the hapless boys — and the very world as we know it!

WV Shakes Fall Fest

November 8, 2024 - November 17, 2024

The Old Time Classics Radio Show

November 8, 2024 - November 17, 2024
Director: Mike Murdock

We’ll be bringing you old time radio classics to the Alchemy stage. We will assemble a group of actors to read the shows, but will have all of the sounds effects done LIVE on stage as well.  Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic TREASURE ISLAND, as well as THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES and the longform poem CASEY AT THE BAT!

A Cozy Christmas Festival

December 6, 2024 - December 8, 2024

Instead of a new play set in Cozy… we thought what better way to celebrate than to bring COZY to YOU?! Next year we will be introducing Alchemy Theatre’s COZY CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL! That’s right, Cozy lovers! Many of the events of the Cozy Christmas Festival in the past years will be brought to life, for real, in our now annual Christmas Festival! 

A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail

December 6, 2024 - December 8, 2024
Director: Jocelyn Jasko

A very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows. Its theme, which concerns caring, sharing and the importance of cultivating friends, makes this a very special and enchanting musical, and illustrates, for all of us, a most HUMAN Condition, in the form of a silly old bear and friends.
