Created by David Grapes and Todd Olson
Book by Todd Olson

My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra is an award winning music revue featuring more than 50 songs recorded by ‘Old Blue Eyes’. This is not about impersonating Frank Sinatra rather it is a classy tribute to his style, his era and some of the 20th century’s most beautiful songs. It is set in a stylish 1950’s nightclub and performed by four singers who each bring out a facet of Sinatra with their vocal style. Some songs include “All of Me”, “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Love and Marriage”, “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “Moonlight Serenade”, “Strangers in the Night”, “Theme from New York New York” and “The Way You Look Tonight”.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised]
Directed by: Anna Oxborrow

July 29 – August 15, 2021
Thursdays-Sundays only

Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s classic farce, two of its original writer/performers thoroughly revised the show to bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences, incorporating some of the funniest material from the numerous amateur and professional productions that have been performed throughout the world. The cultural touchstone that is THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged) [revised] was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged) [revised] is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.

Please remember that we will be at a reduced capacity and seats will be socially distanced. Tickets are available in pods of 1, 2, 3, or 4. We will have a limited number of seats in the pit (only available in pods of 2) and those seats can only be reserved by calling us at 309-676-2196.


The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
Directed by: Greg & Sarah Blume

August 19 – September 5, 2021
Thursdays – Sundays only

Musical of Musicals is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals www.concordtheatricals.com
Music by Eric Rockwell
Lyrics by Joanne Bogart
Book by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart

The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. The basic plot: June is an ingenue who can’t pay rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue? The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago. This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest-running show in the York Theatre Company’s 35-year history before moving off-Broadway.

Please remember that we will be at a reduced capacity and seats will be socially distanced. Tickets are available in pods of 1, 2, 3, or 4. We will have a limited number of seats in the pit (only available in pods of 2) and those seats can only be reserved by calling us at 309-676-2196.
