NOVEMBER 17 - DECEMBER 10  (PREVIEW: 11/16) Note - no perfomance Thanksgiving day

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus for this musical: the Addams kids are growing up. You won’t want to miss this one!

You think you know the whole story of the classic 1933 film King Kong? Think again! In the film, Broadway producer Carl Dennam sets out to capture a terrifying forty-foot ape, King Kong --- the bait, beautiful blond actress Ann Farrow. When first mate Jack rescues Ann from the beast, Dennam traps Kong and transports him to Manhattan to star in a Broadway show. But lovelorn Kong has other ideas! He escapes, rampaging throughout the city in search of Ann.
Now here’s the backstory. Producer Myron Siegel’s entire career has been constantly sabotaged by Dennam. So Siegel is furious when he learns that Dennam has booked a “mystery” show to open in the theater next door to where Siegel’s next show will open the very same night. Siegel gathers his entourage—his sassy, ex-stripper, mother, his gangster henchman, his Hungarian backer, and his wide-eyed niece —and concocts a plan to find out what the mystery show is all about and prevent Dennam from ruining his show. As this screwball comedy unfolds there are mistaken identities, pies in the face, cat fights, kidnapping, ape fights, deceit, underhandedness and even some romance, as Siegel and his entourage collide with Dennam, Ann and Jack to save Siegel’s show.

JULY 19 - AUGUST 11  (PREVIEW 7/18) 

In the Heights, created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
