Backed by the rockin' Rave On Band, their incredible musicianship help to ignite the stage and breathe new life into the music of Buddy Holly.

In this rock and roll tour-de-force, audiences will experience the all the thrills of a Buddy Holly concert re-imagined which includes such hits as "Peggy Sue", "Raining in My Heart", "It's So Easy", "That'll Be the Day", "True Love Ways", "Oh Boy" and of course, "Rave On". But, that's only part of it! In a unique twist, Billy as 'Buddy' celebrates the birth of an era and pays homage to his fellow rockers Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper.

Christmas The Cowboy Way by Riders in the Sky

Hear the Christmas Yodel resounding! It's a great big western ho-ho-ho from "America's Favorite Cowboys" Riders In The Sky! Those wacky, four-part harmonizing cowboys have spruced up the bunkhouse, donned their sequined yuletide outfits, and loosed their vivid imaginations to create a holiday musical fantasy for Saddle Pals of all ages.

Christmas The Cowboy Way will feature their unique "brand" of cowboy humor sprinkled with a dash of holiday spice which includes original songs like "Riding Home On Christmas Eve," "Deck The Bunkhouse Walls," and "The Last Christmas Medley You'll Ever Need To Hear." You will also be invited to join Riders in singing traditional holiday classics such as "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and others. And all this yuletide charm is augmented with the classic, western favorites Riders have been singing for 30 years.

So put on your merry cheer and saddle up and ride! You're invited to spend a holiday evening Christmas The Cowboy Way!

Broadway's Finding Neverland

Based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, this breathtaking show follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer - and the man - he yearns to be. Barrie finds the inspiration he's been missing when he meets the beautfiul widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael, and Peter.

Delighted by the boys' hilarious escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any the high-society London theatregoers have ever seen. It's a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered - 

When you believe, you can fly.
