The Foreigner

By Larry Shue

SEPTEMBER 17-27, 2015

All Charlie wanted was some peace and quiet. So when he arrived at a fishing lodge in Georgia, it seemed harmless enough to masquerade as a foreigner who can't speak English. He soon realizes, however, that people will say the most extraordinary things when they think no one can understand them! An award-winning comedic face, The Foreigner is both scrupulously clever and outrageously funny!

Broadway Bound

By Neil Simon

FEBRUARY 18-28, 2016

Thurs - Sat @ 7:30pm | Sun @ 2pm

Returning from World War II, Eugene teams up with his brother Stanley to break into the world of comedy writing. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, the family is surprised to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves. Regarded as one of Neil Simon's finest plays, Broadway Bound is semi-autobiographical of its author and is filled with laughter, tears, and insight. A Tony award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist.

By Sharr White

JUNE 2-12, 2016

Thurs-Sat @ 7:30pm | Sun @ 2pm

Twenty years ago, Emma walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses, leaving behind their marriage in the middle of the night. Now, hearing he's in dire straits, she tracks him down in the wilds of Colorado to find him living in a grungy trailer. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, rekindles the bond which brought them together all those years ago.




Rock of Ages


Arrangements and Orchestrations by ETHAN POPP

JULY 14-31, 2016

Wed-Sat @ 7:30pm | Sun @ 2pm

The party's been raging hard at the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood. Aspiring rock star Drew long to be the next big thing (and pines for Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas, with stars in her eyes).

But the rock and roll fairy tale is about to end when developers sweep in with plans to turn it into another capitalist strip mall. This Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical features music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more!
