Mike Nichols’ cinematic classic is brought to life on the stage. It is 1964 and Benjamin Braddock is leaving behind the safety of college for an unknown future full of insecurities. Enter Mrs. Robinson, the frustrated wife of his father’s business partner, and Ben gets an education not found in any college curriculum.

READ THE HOUSTON PRESS REVIEW

Beckham...gracefully stumbles, shambles, and all but traipses the light fantastic

The Reaction

The opening night performance was straight fire.

Dirt Dogs Theatre Company's production of the Graduate is a must see! Malinda L. Beckham gives an exceptional performance!

I SO enjoyed the show! The more it went on, the better it was …  I loved it! I am so happy I went.
