Noises Off

by Michael Frayn

Called "the funniest farce ever written," we invite you behind the scenes to witness the foibles and follies of this play within a play as a cast rehearses and performs a flop called Nothing's On. This look at the inner workings of theatre -- missed cues, flubbled lines, secret affairs, and doors that won't open -- will have you rolling in the aisles. Come along to see slapstick, slamming doors, falling trousers, and the unforgettable flying sardines.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Oklahoma

Music by Richard Rodgers

The Oklahoma Territory in 1906 is a frontier on the verge of becoming a state where the farmer and the cowman must learn to be friends and young lovers attend box socials in a surrey with a fringe on top. The original 1943 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic ran for more than five years and remains an audience pleasing stable of the musical theatre cannon to this day!

An O Henry Christmas

By Howard Burman

On Christmas Eve in the 1890's, a group of hobos on the outskirts of New York have an unwelcome visitor drop in on them. They agree to let him have some of their food and share their fire in exchange for some stories about acts of kindness from unlikely sources. The visitor even has the members of the group act out the stories. It turns out the visitor is an escaped convict, but before he runs off to avoid the police, he manages to touch the hearts of his "hosts" and to show then that Christmas is about more than the usual superficial things.

Doubt, A Parable

By John Patrick Shanley

Next to Normal

Music by Tom Kitt
Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Original Broadway production produced by David Stone, James L. Nederlander, Barbara Whitman, Patrick Catullo and Second Stage Theatre

Diana and her family aren't quite as normal as they may first appear -- but maybe something next to normal will be okay. Grief, medical ethics, and psycopharmacology are unlikely subjects for a musical, but Next to Normal has been called one of the best musicals of the 21st century because of its graceful handling of its dark, complex subject matter and its moving and brutally honest exploration into pain. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards (and winner of 3!), the show also received a Pulitzer Prize for best drama.

Recommended for ages 13 and up with parental guidance.
