A Few Good Men         September 13 – October 7, 2018
By Aaron Sorkin

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. 


 The Wizard of Oz    October 25 – November 18, 2018
By L. Frank Baum
With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg
;  Background Music by Herbert Stothart   Dance and Vocal Arrangements by Peter Howard;  Orchestration by Larry Wilcox; Adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Based on the 1939 movie with Judy Garland.

Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life. So when witchy old Miss Gulch threatens to impound Dorothy’s dog Toto, Dorothy runs away with her pet, only to be whisked away to the Land of OZ in a terrifying cyclone. Looking for her way back home,  she and her new friends sing some of the most iconic songs ever, including “If I Only Had a Brain/Heart/Nerve”, “Munchkin Land”, “Follow The Yellow Brick Road”  and the classic “Over the Rainbow”.   

A Christmas Story    November 29 - December 23, 2018

By Philip Grecian. Based on the movie A Christmas Story,  Written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark

“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”   Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in 1940’s Indiana, follows Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case to his mother, his teacher and Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt's Department Store. All the elements from the beloved movie are here - the family's temperamental furnace, the school bully Scut Farkas, the boys' bet concerning a wet tongue on an icy lamppost, the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring;  and Ralphie's father winning “a major award” – the lady’s leg lamp in a fishnet stocking! A Christmas Story has become a theatrical holiday classic!  

Almost Heaven, Songs of John Denver
February 14 – March 10, 2019

Conceived by Harold Thau with orchestrations, vocal arrangements, and music supervision by Jeff Waxman

Almost Heaven weaves together the songs of John Denver to create a uniquely theatrical narrative that reflects upon the country during the years in which he wrote them.  Twenty-nine of Denver's songs – including “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Calypso” and more – are rediscovered and reinvented, performed against a backdrop of stunning visual images of America in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s,a time of political upheaval, yet great beauty and hope.

The ultimate show-biz musical, 42ND STREET celebrates Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theatre. Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able to step in and become a star?  The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including “Dames,” “We’re In the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and “Forty-Second Street.”
