SYCAMORE
Raven Theatre

Celia and Henry are teenaged siblings living in a Midwestern suburb who both become romantically interested in the same boy - their new next-door neighbor John. This isn't the first time Celia and Henry have been romantic rivals. Will trouble strike again as the two vie for John's affections? Meanwhile, Celia and Henry's parents, David and Louise, face stress in their marriage due to David's reduction in hours as a college professor and need to take on a job as a short order cook in an all-night diner. This world premiere by the promising new playwright Sarah Sander is a warm and frequently funny look at family life in a world where all the rules have changed.

Hairspray in Broadway HAIRSPRAY
Windy City Music Theatre
4/8-4/30/2017
Chicago - Windy City Music Theatre, one of Chicago’s fastest-growing professional theatre companies, will present HAIRSPRAY, with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray, April 8th-30th in Jefferson Park. ABOUT THE SHOW: The 1950’s are out and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire — to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her ‘do! ABOUT OUR MAINSTAGE SHOWS: Our MAINSTAGE Shows are fully-produced, big family musicals performed by professional actors, teens and youth. These two-hour productions are designed to appeal to our “for and by all ages” philosophy. Audiences who have enjoyed past MainStage shows remark that the shows are uplifting, inspiring, and fun for the whole family – not to mention more economical than larger venues. HAIRSPRAY includes auditioned and non-auditioned youth & teen ensemble and supporting characters, training alongside professional adults and performing in the shows. Directed by Jordan Richardson | Music Direction by Nick Arceo | Choreography by Joseph Kuchey

BEYOND CARING
Lookingglass Theatre Company
3/22-5/5/2017
Unseen. Unheard. Unknown. At the margins of society, on the knife-edge of survival, they work for low wages, in harsh conditions. No safety net. No insurance or protections. No guarantee of work tomorrow. This critically-acclaimed piece, most recently produced at the UK’s National Theatre, is re-imagined for Chicago by writer/director Alexander Zeldin. In association with Dark Harbor Stories, a company led by Ensemble Member David Schwimmer and Tom Hodges, this play is a gritty portrait of those who cling precariously to the bottom rung of the ladder. Full of life, humor, and tenderness, it sheds light on America’s shadow economy and shines an unflinching spotlight on the incendiary intersection of race and class.

The Most Happy Fella in Broadway THE MOST HAPPY FELLA
Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre
3/10-5/7/2017
Tony, a middle-aged Napa Valley vintner who makes a mail-order marriage proposal to Rosabella. She accepts the proposal on the mistaken assumption that the photo Tony sent along is of Tony, when it is in fact a picture of the young and handsome farm foreman Joe. It’s a touching love story that has been popular first as a non-musical play and feature film and as this musical filled with sweeping ballads, intense dramatic arias and tuneful, splashy Broadway-style numbers.

Mercury Theater Chicago
3/24-5/28/2017
Disney’s MARY POPPINS is a Supercalifragilistic hit! Combining the best of the original stories by P. L. Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film, the Tony Award-winning MARY POPPINS is everything you'd hope for in a Broadway musical—and like nothing you'd ever expect. Get swept up in tunes like "Spoonful of Sugar," "Feed the Birds" and of course "Chim Chim Cher-ee" as young Jane and Michael learn life lessons from their unconventional nanny and the lovable jack-of-all-trades Bert. So, bring the whole family and spend a “Jolly Holiday” with Mary and an irresistible cast of characters.
