Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton Book by Patricia Resnick
Based on the 20th Century Fox Picture
This is the hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do -- even in a man's world. Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and taking care of business... it's about getting credit and getting even...
Sound of Music:
Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II,
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Suggested by "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers"
The world's most beloved musical! When a high-spirited postulant serves as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain, her energy and joy capture the heart of the stern Captain. With a Nazi threat looming, the family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
Fox on the Fairway
a comedy by Ken Ludwig
Enjoy a romp that pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with golf jokes, mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics.
We are waiting for final permission on this show.
12 Angry Men
Adapted by Sherman Sergel.
Based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose.
A 19-year-old man stood trial. It looks like an open-and-shut case-until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his own character as testimony is re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and there is a new murder threat! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men.
Book by Terrence McNally Music by Stephen Flaherty Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Based on the novel, Ragtime, by E.L. Doctorow
This award winning musical is a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America with relevance for today. The musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families as they confront timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Musical styles range from the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley to the klezmer of the Lower East Side, from bold brass band marches to delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes to period parlor songs and expansive anthems.
