Disney's Mary Poppins

Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again.
MUSICAL RATED G
Crazy For You
A Lyceum Premiere! Crazy for You is a high-energy comedy of mistaken identities, plot twists, fabulous costumes and dances, and classic Gershwin music. With a hilarious book by Ken Ludwig, this Gershwin extravaganza is filled with song, dance, and big laughs. Audiences will be swept up in this artfully constructed tale of boy meeting girl in the Wild West, where they try to save a failing theatre and ultimately fall in love.MUSICAL RATED PG
A Lyceum Premiere! The explosive 80's movie musical bursts onto the stage with exhilarating results! When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the local laws - including a ban on dancing - which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town's youths. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people and guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
MUSICAL RATED PG
The 39 Steps
A Lyceum Premiere! Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the thrilling, and riotously funny whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre. A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure theatrical pleasure!
COMEDY/MYSTERY RATED PG
A Lyceum Premiere! Recently played by Meryl Streep on film, New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once said, "People may say I can't sing, but no one can ever say I didn't sing." But this wealthy eccentric was incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. An improbable fandom flocked to see her as she performed her Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. This very funny show reminds us that you can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.

Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight!
