Event Details

The Play That Goes Wrong
By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sawyer & Henry Shields



A Comedy For All Ages! This play is a perfect, hilarious mix of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. The play starts with the murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show -- an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything ... including their lines! Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences.

Winner of the Best New Comedy at 2015 Laurence Oliver Awards and been running in the UK since 2012. Entertainment Weekly declares The Play That Goes Wrong is "... hilarious ... nonstop pandemonium ... a ridiculously entertaining disaster!"

Peter and the Starcatcher
Play by Rick Elice and Music by Wayne Barker
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Provides the backstory for the characters of Peter Pan, Mrs. Darling, Tinker Bell and Hook.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates –led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own –the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

The Cemetery Club
by Ivan Menchell

Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt-stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.

Footloose
Music by Tom Snow
Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie
Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford
Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins, and Jim Steinman

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.
