2016/2017 Season

Tiger Style!

Cheeky Humor

September 6 - October 2, 2016 | Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre

By Mike Lew | Directed by Jaime Castañeda

Star students and squabbling siblings Albert and Jennifer Chen used to represent the pinnacle of adolescent achievement. But when it comes to adulthood, they’re epic failures. Albert’s just been passed up for promotion and Jennifer’s been dumped by her loser boyfriend. So they do what any reasonable egghead brother and sister would do and go on an Asian Freedom Tour! Travelling from California to China, Tiger Style! embraces the inner slacker and the outer tiger parent in all of us.

Production Sponsors:
