Come play with us in our exciting third season!
CATS
“Based on T. S. Eliot’s whimsical collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s popular musical brings together a tribe of Jellicle cats on a moonlit evening, who must make the “Jellicle choice” to decide which of them will ascend to the mysterious Heaviside Layer to be reborn.  Featuring such celebrated standards as the haunting “Memory,” Cats was an international phenomenon and its original production is still the fourth-longest-running show on Broadway, with a new revival that opened in summer 2016.  A magical, moving, and often hilarious glimpse into the lives of others, Cats takes Eliot’s lyrical poetry and puts it into the mouths of a diverse company of singing, dancing felines.”

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. When separated from their spouses, easy-going messy Olive Madison and uptight neatnik Florence Unger decide to share an apartment.

The Odd Couple
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde      
The concept of good and evil as opposites is well ingrained in Western culture and religion. Perhaps that explains why a story about a man intrigued with the idea that they perhaps could be combined in one person and separated at will would become one of our best known horror stories.

Based on the 1886 novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, the story has been adapted hundreds of times for stage and screen.  Obsessed with man's dual nature, the distinguished and well respected Dr. Henry Jekyll, has been experimenting to find a serum that would allow going from one to the other of his dual natures.  With his success is created the evil, grotesque Mr. Hyde, and disaster is looming.
