The 39 Steps

Hitchcock meets hilarious as Englishman Richard Hannay encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents and devastatingly beautiful women in this fast-paced whodunit. Part espionage thriller and part slapstick comedy, four actors play over 150 characters in this ingeniously adapted homage to film noir and theatrical stagecraft.

April 27, 2015 - April 28, 2015
Time Capsule: The 80's

Never fear, no heavy metal or rap here. Just a lot of pop, rock, and country from a Thriller of a decade that said if Papa Don't Preach and we were Dancing on the Ceiling, then Sweet Dreams are Made of This and we'd have a Total Eclipse of the Heart!

May 14, 2015 - May 16, 2015
The Frog Pal

What happens when a Princess promises to be friends with a helpful frog – but doesn’t keep her vow? Will the Princess learn about true friendship and the importance of keeping a promise? This engaging twist on a classic fairy tale reminds us all that we have to look beyond skin-deep to see how beautiful a person (or frog!) really is.

Plaza Suite

One of Neil Simon's most popular and celebrated plays, Plaza Suite details the misadventures of three very different couples as they face crucial moments in their respective lives - all in the same room in the world famous Plaza Hotel. Plaza Suite showcases Simon at his best - witty, clever and relentlessly funny.

July 16, 2015 - Aug. 9, 2015

New York, 1922, full of intrigue and jazz - a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Based on the popular movie, the stage version of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE includes a full score of great songs and bright dance numbers.
