Dames at Sea

October 22 - November 21, 2021

Book and Lyrics By George Haimsohn and Robin Miller

Music by Jim Wise

Ruby is fresh off the bus from Hometown, USA with dreams of becoming a star on Broadway. Dick is a sailor who aspires to become a big-time songwriter. Their chance meeting kicks off a whirlwind day in which Ruby goes from chorine to budding star and love triumphs on the deck of a battleship that becomes the ad hoc venue for her Broadway debut. Smart, tuneful, joyful and nostalgic, this off-Broadway hit that catapulted a young Bernadette Peters to stardom is the perfect toe-tapping tonic to kick off our return to traditional programming.

The Night Before

December 3 - December 24, 2021

Written and Directed by Matthew McGee

Music and Arrangements by Michael Raabe

There's no place like home for the holidays. It's snowing in sunny Florida when a group of friends and a surly house cat named Stephen Sondheim gather around the piano for a night of fun, music and games. Alternately hilarious and heartwarming, The Night Before is delightfully reminiscent of classic holiday TV specials, yet refreshingly modern in its depiction of one fabulous night with the family you



January 28 - February 27, 2022

By John Clancy

Check your delicate sensibilities at the door. He is Fatboy, and he is God! This brutally funny satire based on Alfred Jarry's seminal Ubu plays, is a live-action Punch and Judy show rife with slapstick and bullseye-accurate jabs at modern life and our appetite to consume, well... everything. Fatboy and his wife Queen Fudgie the First are to stand trial for their many crimes. Will Truth and Justice prevail or will Fatboy's "persuasive" tactics place him out of their reach?

Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill

March 25 - April 24, 2022

By Lanie Robertson

The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday's last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.

A Skeptic and a Bruja

May 20 - June 19, 2022

By Rosa Fernandez

A world premiere produced in collaboration with Urbanite Theatre

Priscilla buys a home in the middle of nowhere with the hopes of turning it into a lucrative bed and breakfast. When she starts having paranormal experiences, she calls Sam and Jess from the hit ghost-hunting show "A Skeptic and a Bruja" to help her. None of the women are prepared for the haunting they encounter next. This world premiere is presented in cooperation with Urbanite Theatre.

Gutsy. Heartbreaking. Life-affirming. Meaningful. Deep. Painful. And brilliant.

ZOMBIE BEACH: THE MUSICAL Will Premiere at HCC Ybor City Photo
The Hillsborough Community College Theater Department and LAB Theater Project  co-present the new stage show, Zombie Beach: The Musical, with a book by Tampa Bay native John Cecil, and music and lyrics by Cecil and Laura Rebel-Angel.  Set in the 1960s, this show brings together beach movies, rock & roll, and zombies, in a story about the love of the living and the hunger of the dead.

LAB Theater Projects THE ROOSTERS TALE Closes This Weekend Photo
Closing this weekend is The Rooster’s Tale, a new play by Paula Fell.  Based on “true” events in Medieval England, this riotous play uses timeless humor (with a bit of buffoonery), classic wordplay, and a very unlikely event to illustrate one humble family’s path to triumph through some very contemporary problems.
