This time, it's the end of the world. Again.

For the Antrobus family, threats of global destruction are as familiar as the dinosaurs on the lawn. In and around a frenzied schedule of four thousandth birthday celebrations and inventing the wheel, they must rebuild and repopulate the earth now and then. Sure, they can always be counted on to save the future of humanity, but there's just one nagging question: Is humanity worth saving?

History is no match for the human spirit in this epic tale of hope, courage, and complete absurdity.

"Extremely a philosophy class conducted in a monkey house." —TIME Magazine

Directed by Angela Konrad, The Skin of our Teeth features Ben Buckingham, Megan Couch, Julie Casselman, Julia Church, Crystal Dodding, Mark Fleming, Karyn Guenther, Jon Hollis, Lyndon Johnson, Cara Lowdermilk, Daniele Neve, Nicola Prigge, Chris Simons, Danielle Spampinato, Jessica Van Elk, and Sarah Weiner. Rounding out the production team are Assistant Director Clare Arney and Stage Managers Becky MacDormand, Ashley MacKenzie, and Thomas Nelson. Costumes by Barbara Gregusova, Set and Lighting by Lauchlin Johnston.

The first opportunity for theatre audiences to celebrate the launch of SAMC and the newly minted BFA Acting program, The Skin of our Teeth is a thrilling, larger-than-life classic not to be missed.
