THE MUSIC MAN
September 7 - November 3, 2012

An affectionate ode to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson's The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by the fall of the curtain.

November 17 - December 29, 2012

It’s The Odd Couple meets A Christmas Carol when two brothers - one, a successful, high-powered businessman, the other, a struggling, out of work actor - find themselves unexpectedly spending the holidays together.

RUMORS
September 28 - October 7, 2012
Several affluent couples gather at a posh dinner party celebrating their hosts’ tenth anniversary. However, they discover the hostess is missing, and the host - the deputy mayor of New York City - has shot himself through the earlobe! Comic complications arise when, given everyone’s upper class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening’s events from the local police and the media! Classic Neil Simon at his hysterical best.

THE WOMEN
January 25 - February 3, 2013

This brilliant play has assumed the status of a modern classic. Aside from the novelty of featuring a large cast of women (no male characters at all!) it is an immensely entertaining panorama of our world from the feminine viewpoint. The playwright shows us not only a somewhat unflattering picture of womanhood, but digging under the surface, reveals a human understanding for and sympathy with some of its outstanding figures. The plot involves the efforts of a group of women to play their respective roles in an artificial society that consists of vainity, comedy, tragedy, hope and disappointment.


OLIVER!
July 26 - August 4, 2013

After running away from the orphanage run by the heartless Mr. Bumble, Oliver meets the Artful Dodger and is recruited to pick pockets for Fagin. There, Oliver finds a friend in Nancy, but neither she nor the boy are fit for a life of crime. This classic crowd-pleaser is adapted from Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens and features the beloved songs Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long as He Needs Me, and Food, Glorious Food.

BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON

THE GLASS MENAGERIE
February 7 - March 3, 2013

Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical, heartbreaking, yet often humorous memory play about a young struggling poet and his tenuous relationships with his overbearing mother and his fragile sister is an emotionally charged portrait of hope in 1930s St. Louis that is timeless in its ability to capture the imagination and hearts of audiences.
