The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

In this hilarious Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

Shows & Tickets

Romeo and Juliet

 When the children of two rival families fall in love, they must keep their new and budding romance a secret. In this re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic love story, the conventions of time and sequence have been manipulated to reposition the original plot lines and dialogue in order to highlight new connections and themes for a modern audience. You will experience this love story as you never have before.

Charlottes’ Web

Determined to save Wilbur from the butcher, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that offers an evening of enchantment.

Shows & Tickets

Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike

 Tony award winner of best play in 2014 Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike is a brilliant comedy written by Christopher Durang. The story revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house.

Shows & Tickets

Urinetown 

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
