Skylight Music Theatre presents Once On This Island

An enchanting musical fable, Once On This Island tells the story of forbidden love between two people from different worlds. Originally inspired by The Little Mermaid and Romeo & Juliet, this award-winning musical is set on an island in the French Antilles where social prejudices run deep and Caribbean music plays hot. Dazzling choreography, lush ballads and rousing choral numbers are certain to provide much needed warmth in the midst of a long, cold winter!

The Train Driver

Midwest Premiere! Roelf Visagie is desperately searching for the identities of a mother and child he unintentionally killed with his train. His quest eventually leads him to an eye-opening encounter with an old gravedigger. Inspired by an actual event in South Africa, this hard-hitting new drama is the latest from Athol Fugard, one of our greatest living playwrights. Featuring David Daniel and Michael A. Torrey

March 11, 2015 - March 29, 2015
Skylight Music Theatre presents The Snow Dragon

A WORLD PREMIERE opera by award winning novelist and composer Somtow Sucharitkul. The Snow Dragon is the fantastical tale about a boy named Billy Binder who often escapes to an imaginary world of eternal snow, where he rides a dragon, fights monsters and rescues princesses. Unfortunately, it’s also ruled by the evil and omnipresent ‘Ringmaster’ and his whip. Billy feels no pain in this magical universe, unlike the real world he faces at home. The Snow Dragon is a classic tale of good vs. evil. Experience this amazing new work before it heads to Thailand for a special performance for His Majesty the King!

April 16, 2015 - May 3, 2015
Jeeves Takes a Bow

Bertie and Jeeves are back for a final encore! In Margaret Raether's third adaptation of the P.G. Wodehouse stories, the dynamic duo is now residing in Manhattan and dabbling in show biz. When they become involved with a kooky young chorus girl, they quickly learn that trouble (and her gangster "friend") follows close behind! Featuring Matt Daniels as Jeeves, with Kay Allmand, Anna Cline, Chris Klopatek, Steve Koehler and Chase Stoeger
