Bye Bye Birdie
May 2 - May 27, 2018
Book by Michael Stewart; Music by Charles Strouse' Lyrics by Lee Adams
 
A loving send-up of pre-Beatles, 1960's small-town America and Rock & Roll, Bye Bye Birdie remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie gets drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. With a tuneful high-energy score, riotous teen romance and a hilarious script, Birdie continues to thrill audiences around the world. Hit songs include "Put on a Happy Face," "One Last Kiss," "One Boy," "A Lot of Livin' to Do," "Kids!" and "Rosie."
 
 
Once On This Island
June 6 - July 1, 2018
by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
 
Ti Moune, a peasant girl, falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel. Unbeknownst to her, the pompous gods of the island make a bet over which is stronger, love or death - the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When Daniel returns to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love is not enough to win Daniel's heart. Will Ti Moune pay the ultimate price? Winner of the 1995 Olivier Award in London for Best New Musical, this show features exciting island-flavored songs, including "Waiting for Life," "One Small Girl," "The Human Heart" and "Why We Tell the Story."
 
 
The Mystery of Irma Vep - A Penny Dreadful
July 11 - August 5, 2018
by Charles Ludlam
 
A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire, an ancient Egyptian princess brought to life, a lonely British Lord named Edgar, his new wife, her snooty maid, a disappearing/re-appearing groundskeeper and other macabre and madcap characters make this a comedy that has everything - especially when you consider that they're all played by only two actors in a bewildering series of costume changes and clever scenes that will make your head spin! Can Lord Edgar's expedition to Egypt discover the secrets of immortality? This is the kind of fun that gets people hooked on theater in the first place. Far and away the funniest two hours you'll experience on stage!
 
 
Jesus Christ Superstar
August 15 - September 9, 2018
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber; Lyrics by Tim Rice
 
What's the buzz? Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless work, the rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstarfollows the last week of Jesus Christ's life. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire. The iconic 1970s rock score contains such well-known numbers as "Superstar," "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and "Gethsemane."
