Underwritten by Suzy Goldschmidt, in honor of David Goldschmidt

WE HAVE ADDED A PERFORMANCE ON SATURDAY, 5/28/22 at 8pm

DUE TO THE HIGH NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES IN OUR CAST, WE HAVE CANCELLED THE 5/20, 5/21, & 5/22 PERFORMANCES OF EVITA.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of EVITA, Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice's dynamic musical masterpiece. Escaping her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires, Eva Peron, “saint to the working-class and reviled by the aristocracy,” was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Featuring such iconic songs as “On This Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

Alan Menken's A Christmas Carol - November 11 through December 4, 2022

Alan Menken's "A Christmas Carol" is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens's most well-known story. Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

For all families and ages!

SWEENEY TODD is Stephen Sondheim’s chilling, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism” and culinary crime.

Featuring a lush, complex musical score, with clever and memorable songs such as “The Worst Pies in London,” “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” “City on Fire” and “Pretty Women,” SWEENEY TODD is a show — and a man — you won’t soon forget!
