History Theatre will open the new season with Behind the Sun, a personal drama based on the playwright’s life about the power of family and friendship to fulfill a dream in the face of redlining in the 1950s.

I Am Betty, returns this holiday season. The story of Betty Crocker returns from last season as a musical treat that will have you singing along.
