The Art of Racing in the Rain

March 1 - 24, 2018

Based on the New York Times Best Selling Novel by Garth Stein

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul, he has educated himself by watching television
extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny,
Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast. Having
learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime when he
is sure he will return as a man. A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of
Racing in the Rain is a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it. Comic Drama.

Three Days of Rain

May 3 - 26, 2018

By Richard Greenberg 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama Nominee

1995. A year after he disappeared on the day of his father’s funeral, Walker Janeway returns to New York and takes up temporary

and designed the great house that would make them famous. Scouring the space for clues to the tortured family history, Walker
discovers his father’s hidden journal. When he is joined by his sister, Nan, and their friend, Pip, Walker forces the confrontation that
the others need. The second act takes us to 1960 to meet the parents at the same age their children are in Act One. There we are

A 30 Year Retrospective of Bruce Whtiney's Music

After years as a rock musician and songwriter, Harlequin Musical Director Bruce Whitney began composing music for theater when his
sister-in-law, Linda Whitney, invited him to score a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the Summer of 1988. Since then, he has

Ruthless!

August 16- September 15, 2018

Music by Marvin Larid and Lyrics by Joel Paley

Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she will do anything to win the part in her school
musical. Anything includes murdering the leading lady! This aggressively outrageous musical hit garnered rave reviews during its long
Off-Broadway run. “A spoof that has enough absurd plot twists and multiple identities to fill several old movies...The fun comes from
the sheer brazenness!” - The New York Times. “Hilarious...It is beyond praise!” - New York Daily News. “A demented pleasure. Cheery,
cheeky burlesque humor that evokes Your Show of Shows.” - New York Newsday. “A wonderfully smart and funny send up of every
Broadway brat from Gypsy to The Bad Seed...loaded with campy wit and charm.” - Variety. Musical Comedy - All ages with guidance.

A Steady Rain

October 4 - 27, 2018

A Drama by Kevin Huff

A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, A Steady Rain explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted
by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago. Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after
working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family, but when a domestic disturbance call takes a
turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty
struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlifes. Drama - All ages with guidance.
