Up next will be Rodgers & Hammerstein's CAROUSEL, running November 9 - December 4, 2022. Rodgers & Hammerstein's masterpiece comes to life on our stage in a unique, intimate setting. Featuring the stunning twin-piano arrangement, classic tunes such as "If I Loved You," "June is Bustin' Out All Over," "It Was a Real Nice Clambake", and the immortal "You'll Never Walk Alone" will transport audiences to a Maine coastal village. Experience this glorious story and score, unplugged and unamplified with a cast of 18 singers and actors.

The new year will kick off with the hit Broadway comedy CRIMES OF THE HEART by Beth Henley. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize & New York Drama Critics Circle Award, CRIMES OF THE HEART will run January 11 - 29, 2023. Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.

Closing out the 20th anniversary season will be the classic comedy YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU by legendary playwriting team George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart, running March 29 - April 23, 2023.
