The Drowsy Chaperone
- November 2 & 4 @ 7pm and November 5 @ 2pm
- Mainstage

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Hailed by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

Little Red Robin Hood

By Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus

We’ve all seen fractured fairy tales before, but never quite like this one, which takes a hilarious detour through Robin Hood’s Nottingham and Sherwood Forest!  Smart, pretty, and kind, Little Red Robin Hood must deal with the Big Bad Sheriff of the Naughty Hams (the Three Little Pigs, that is!), who do the bidding of Prince John, the vain Emperor who is eager to try on his magic new suit being woven by Cinderella’s deceitful stepsisters.  With Humpty Dumpty, Black Sheep, Rose Red, and Simple Simon acting as her Merry Men, Little Red Robin Hood must save all the village grannies of Sherwood Forest, including her own, an old woman who lives in a shoe, Mother Hubbard, and Mother Goose herself.  Along the way, she also wins the heart of the Pied Piper — aka Marion — who’s a touring celebrity musician with an armload of different Mary’s as groupies.

- Directed by Mr. Dunbar
- Black Box (General Admission)

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play.

(a long way off from Moliere)
- By Jim Dale  & Frank Dunlop
- April 20 & 21 @ 7pm
- Mainstage

Expect chase scenes, love, pirates, and a salami!  

The crafty Scapino, servant to the household of Geronte, jumps into the story as he first promises to help in the affairs of his neighbor's son, Octavio, then to aid in those of his own charge, Leandro (Geronte's son). Both young men have fallen in love with unlikely, and penniless, beauties, and both need money to help solve their dilemmas.

Based on Moliere’s Scapin, this madcap, whirlwind is a modernized version by Jim Dale and Frank Dunlop that will leave you laughing and craving a plate of spaghetti!
