Take a step back in time with this wonderful Jukebox musical. Follow Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy at their Senior Prom for Springfield High School in 1958 as the four best friends look to their future and how all their hopes and dreams will come true. We next meet them as they perform for their 10-year reunion. As always, life never really turns out exactly the way that we imagined it but true friends are eternal.

Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town continues to leave audiences awestruck with wonder and a shared sense of our humanity. Guided by an amiable stage manager, the theatre becomes turn-of-the-century Grover's Corners, where the occurrences of everyday life reveal universal truths about community and love, life and death.

MacBeth has remained one of William Shakespeare's most intense and often performed plays. We follow the progress of the title character as he becomes increasingly powerful, using any means to get what he wants - even murder! He is encouraged by the ruthless and bloodthirsty ambition of his wife, Lady Macbeth. However, power comes at a price and in the end, MacBeth's world falls apart around him, he is defeated and a new king, Malcolm, is declared.
The Drowsy Chaperone
Music & Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
April 12-14 & 19-21, 2024
When wealthy widow Mrs. Tottenham hosts the wedding of the year, she gets a lot more than a write-up in the society pages: Janet Van de Graaff, glittering starlet of Feldzieg's Follies, is leaving the stage for love, a turn of events which horrifies the angry and anxious Mr. Feldzieg, whose chief investor has sent two gangsters disguised as pastry chefs to make sure he stops the wedding. Hiring Aldolpho, a Latin lover more vain than virile, to seduce the bride, is unsuccessful, as Janet's chaperone, a drunken diva, gets herself mistaken for the bride and seduced in Janet's place. It is left to the eager best man, George, to quite by accident break up the happy pair, when he sends the groom Robert Martin out to the garden, blindfolded, and in roller skates. Such are the antics of The Drowsy Chaperone.
