42nd Street, a song and dance extravaganza,
tells the story of starry-eyed young actress Peggy
Sawyer who wants to audition for a new Broadway
musical. Unfortunately, Peggy arrives too late,
missing her chance to join the chorus…until she
catches the eye of the director, and when the
chorus is one girl short, Peggy gets her big break.
On opening night, however, another chorus girl
accidentally pushes Peggy into Dorothy Brock (the
aging leading lady) who falls and breaks her ankle.
The furious director fires Peggy on the spot. With
her dreams of becoming a star crushed, Peggy
packs her bags and heads for the train station.
But fate has other plans. Peggy may get to be a
star yet! The classic musical numbers include
You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me, Dames,
We’re In the Money, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle
Off to Buffalo and Forty-Second Street!

Pippin

 

   February 4 – February 20, 2011

    Produced by Donna Kimberlin
    Directed by Corey Rubel

    Choreographed by Jillian Kimberlin

This Tony-award winning musical, originally directed and
choreographed by Bob Fosse, features the young prince
Pippin who longs to discover the secret to happiness and
fulfillment. He seeks it in the glory of war,
the temptations of
the flesh and the
intrigues of politics

of his father King
Charlemagne). In the
end, he finds it in
the simple pleasures
of home and family.
This hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic
fairy tale captivated Broadway audiences and continues to
appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic popinfluenced
score by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/
lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Godspell,Wicked and the animated
Pocahontas) bursts with one show stopping number after
another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers,
including the soul-driven opener Magic to Do (showing off
Fosse’s signature white gloves), the soaring Corner of the Sky,
the lovely ballad With You (indelicately presented in a brothel),
and the romping No Time at All.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

 
 

 


           

Nov 5 – 21, 2011

Directed by MARK KALET

Musically Directed by RORY CHALCRAFT

 

Choreographed by JAIME MORITZ
We’re off to the Riviera with Broadway’s smash-hit musical comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. This is the story of two unusually funny con men and their attempts to out-con each other. When it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn’t big enough for the both of them, the two scam-artists make a winner-takes-all wager involving the fortunes of a naive American soap heiress—if one of them can “clean” her out, the other must clear out, leaving the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to the victor! We’re betting you’ll find the ensuing battle of wits and wicked tricks to be both deliciously twisted and infectiously hilarious!

 

Reserved seating – $18 Adult, $16 Senior/Student
Fridays and Saturday at 8:00PM, Sundays at 2:00PM.

Rumors

 

 

By Neil Simon

Sept 10 – SEPT 26, 2010

Directed by LINDA VIEL

Produced by ROZ WROBLEWSKI

Four fashionably dressed couples arrive at the home of New York City’s deputy mayor and his wife to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. The four couples soon discover there are no servants, the hostess is missing and the deputy mayor has shot himself in the head (relax…just a flesh wound). Comic complications proliferate, doors get slammed and hilarity is unleashed as the friends conspire to conceal the evening’s events from the local police and the media (and, sometimes, even from each other)!
