MyFairLady

My Fair Lady (musical)
Directed By Amy Williams
June 2 – June 10, 2017

In this beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle, who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond — one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike (comedy)
Directed By Eric Ewan
June 23 – July 1, 2017

The winner of the 2013 Tony Award for best play is a comedy you won’t want to miss!  Christopher Durang has assembled a trio of siblings whose professor parents named them after characters in the Chekov plays that they loved.  This middle aged trio is full of resentments and regrets that lead to hilarious confrontations but ultimately reconciliations and hope for their futures.  The playwright says he used Chekov as a “jumping off point” and that audiences don’t have to be a student of Chekhov to enjoy this play or see themselves in the characters and will laugh along with Chekhov fans just as much.

ByeByeBirdie

Bye Bye Birdie (musical)
Directed By Jimmy Ulrich
July 14 – July 22, 2017

When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie, his fans are devastated, but none more than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson, whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert’s longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform on television to a fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee declared the winner, but no one has counted on the jealous wrath of her boyfriend.

Parade (musical)
Directed By Deric Kimler
August 4 – August 12, 2017

This true story is extremely important to tell. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice, and racial tension, this Tony Award winning musical is a moving examination of the darkest moment in Jewish / American history, and led to the resurgence of the KKK. This show is full of xenophobia (fear of others that aren’t like us) racism, and opportunists. Hopefully it will have people looking at their own lives and how they treat others.  This story is unfortunately still true today as it was over 100 years ago. The score is written by Jason Robert Brown, who also wrote the Broadway musical score of The Bridges of Madison County.

Thoroughly Modern Millie (musical)
Directed By Bryan Blanks
August 25 – September 2, 2017

Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the jazz Age in New York City, when ‘moderns‘ are bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love.  Winner of six Tony awards, and based on the academy Award winning film, this exuberant Broadway hit show is full of high energy dancing (including tap), and fast-paced memorable songs.

All performances begin at 7:30 pm
