Here is the schedule of shows and a short synopsis of each:
First Date (Oct. 13-30)
At a rapid-fire 90 minutes, First Date is a lighthearted musical comedy that chronicles a blind date between Aaron (who has never gone out with a stranger) and serial romancer Casey. As the funny and occasionally foul-mouthed show sings on, the ensemble cast comes to life as various characters from Aaron and Casey’s past – and possible future! The show is perfect for a real first date, a girls’ night out or if you’re looking for a night at the theater packed with more laughs than you can count.
Almost, Maine (January 20 – February 5)
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
Female of the Species (March 17 – April 2)
This comedy that you’ve never heard of will keep you laughing from the surprise beginning to the raucous ending. It’s about the feminist revolution and those women who were affected by it, their daughters who had to bear the brunt of it, and their men who were confused by it. That’s right, it’s a show for everyone.
Cabaret (May 18 – June 4)
The hit musical Cabaret takes us back to Berlin in 1930 as two couples attempt to find happiness while the looming threat of the Third Reich swirls around them. Presiding over it all is the menacing Emcee, whose promise that “Life is a Cabaret” may come with dangerous strings attached. Come to the cabaret, where music and gaiety can block out a world teetering on the brink of madness.
Thoroughly Modern Millie –
Youth on Stage (July 20 – August 6)
Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922 when women were just entering the workforce. Millie soon begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but problems arise when she checks into a hotel owned by the leader of a white slavery ring in China. With hit songs like “What do I Need With Love,” “Speed Test” and “Gimme, Gimme” this light-hearted musical is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
