September 14 - October 19, 2024 - A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum. The setting: ancient Rome. A slave wishes to be free, and will do anything to accomplish that goal. And "anything" includes lying, cheating, stealing, pimping, dressing his extremely nervous friend as a virgin, and, perhaps worst of all...sprinkling horse sweat around town (yes, you read that right...). Sound crazy? You betcha! Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart; Directed by Ray Yucis.

Don't miss this Broadway classic, winner of 10 Tony awards. "With its Larry Gelbart-Burt Shevelove book and Stephen Sondheim score, the musical about hanky-panky in ancient Rome remains the funniest ever written." (WALL STREET JOURNAL)

Perfect for fans of both sides of the aisle, this hysterical political comedy is "located somewhere on the satirical dial between '9 To 5' and 'Veep'. POTUS is a potty-mouthed sendup of life in the fastest lane, the one that ends at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave." (WASHINGTON POST).

This dynamic musical adaptation of Rick Riordan's bestselling book features an exciting rock score and clocks in at a brisk 75 minutes. An action-packed, mythical adventure that is perfect for Percy fans! Recommended for ages 7 and up. Theatre For Young Audiences Edition; Music and Lyrics by Rob Rokicki; Book by Joe Tracz; Based on the novel by Rick Riordan; Directed by Larry Landsman.

February 8 - March 1, 2025 - Rabbit Hole. In the aftermath of a life-shattering accident, a young husband and wife find themselves drifting perilously apart. This winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back up into the light of day. "The play doesn't so much jerk tears as tap them, from a reservoir of feelings common to anyone who has experienced the landscape-shifting vacuum left by a death in the family." (NY TIMES) Written by  David Lindsay-Abaire; Directed by Dottie Fischer.

March 15 - April 5, 2025 - Things My Mother Taught Me. A young couple moves into their first apartment together, halfway across the country from their parents, so imagine their surprise when everyone shows up to help them! Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again, as it is "...superbly written and a wonderful, sentimental, true-to-life comedy about love and family, guaranteed to leave young and old with knowing smiles, because we've all had mothers of our own." (INTELLIGENCER JOURNAL) Written by Katherine DiSavino; Directed by Terri Caust.

May 3 - June 1, 2025 - A Little Night Music. The brilliant composer Stephen Sondheim created a stunning tour-de-force when he turned Ingmar Bergman's comedy-of-manners film, "Smiles of a Summer Night", into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards (and winner of five, including Best Musical of 1973), this Sondheim classic not only features one of the most well-known songs in Broadway history ('Send in the Clowns') but is also "heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting." (NY TIMES) Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by Hugh Wheeler; Directed by Steve Bell.
