Upcoming events

March 10, 2015 - April 5, 2015
Five Presidents

World Premiere Event! Brilliantly intellectual and darkly funny — not to be missed. From Emmy Award-winning writer Rick Cleveland (Six Feet Under, The West Wing, and House of Cards), comes a funny and incisive new drama about the meeting of America’s most exclusive club – the ex-presidents. Obliged to gather together on the day of Richard Nixon’s funeral, four “exes” and one “current” vent frustrations, revisit old grievances, and reveal the toll that it takes on any person foolish enough to seek the highest office in the land.

March 20, 2015 - May 24, 2015
Low Down Dirty Blues

Sassy, sensual, and sultry – we dare you not to sing along! The night club may be closed, but the party is just heating up! Join a group of musician/singers as they gather after-hours to swap stories and share their fervor for music. Four multi-talented performers pour their passion, soul, and love into the greatest hits of Muddy Waters, Ma Rainey, Sophie Tucker, Howlin’ Wolf, Pearl Bailey, and many more. Twenty-two smokin’ songs, non-stop blues riffs, titillating double-entendres, and hot rhythms keep the theater sultry and steamy from the first note to the last.

April 10, 2015 - April 13, 2015

Peter and the Starcatcher

WINNER of 5 TONY AWARDS! A delightful and exciting origin story the whole family can enjoy! Join a swashbuckling, mad-cap adventure aboard the good ship Neverland!
