Crazy For You is a zany rich – boy – meets hometown-girl romantic comedy.  It tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. 

George and Ira Gershwin’s musical comedy hit is full of memorable tunes from the score including “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Crazy For You is a truly delightful homage to the beloved, optimistic musicals of the 1930s full of tap dancing and humor!

Beauty and the Beast is the classic story that tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed to remain enchanted for all eternity.

This “tale as old as time” is based on the Academy Award winning animated feature and is filled with spectacular costumes, dazzling scenery and familiar songs such as “Be Our Guest”, “Belle”, “Gaston” and the well loved title song. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring  the entire family together for theatre at its best!

We invite you to Be Our Guest as this Disney classic comes to life for the first time on our stage.

Nunsense is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery, the rest of the sisterhood having succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. The remaining “Little Hobos” parade their talents at a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. 

The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at break-neck speed. Amid the merriment is a riotous audience participation quiz that has everyone rolling in the aisles, Nunsense offers a cornucopia of hilarity for the whole family, proving conclusively that nun rhymes with fun!
