Carousel

 Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein

Directed by Nancy Ridgeway
Produced by John Demeter
Musical Direction by Don Tenenblatt

In the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic Carousel, the lights come up to the strains of the "Carousel Waltz" at an amusement park in a New England town in 1873. Fishermen, sailors, mill girls and children are enjoying the sights and sounds of the carnival atmosphere. Naïve millworker Julie Jordan meets the carefree, swaggering carnival barker Billy Bigelow and they are swept into a story of love and loyalty, bad choices and betrayal and ultimately redemption and hope. Rogers and Hammerstein's luscious score (their personal favorite) includes "If I Loved You", "June is Bustin' Out All Over", and "You'll Never Walk Alone". Carousel is a thrilling, heartfelt testament to the redeeming power of love.

Performances: April 16, 17, 23, 24 (matinee and evening), 25 (matinee), 30 and May 1

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $18.


Wonder of the World

By David Lindsay-Abaire

Directed by Alana Caraccio
Produced by Jim Kirkwood

Wonder of the World is David Lindsay-Abaire's hilarious tale of a housewife who has a nice, comfortable life and a nice, comfortable relationship until she learns a shocking secret about her staid husband. Seizing this opportunity to throw herself back into life headfirst, Cass the housewife hops a bus to Niagara Falls with her list of life goals firmly in hand and begins a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, and a pair of bickering private detectives, all of which push her perilously close to the water's edge. Wonder of the World is a crazy comedy where unfathomably insane things happen and people's lives are suddenly and inexplicably changed forever.

Performances: May 21, 22, 28, 29, 30 (matinee), June 4 and 5

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $15.


Lend Me a Tenor

By Ken Ludwig

Directed by Keith Soester
Produced by Sharon Rill

This high energy farce is set in 1934 as the world famous tenor Tito Merelli, better known as "Il Stupendo", is about to perform "Otello" at the season opener of the Cleveland Grand Opera. Through a series of mishaps, the evening speeds into absurdity when Il Stupendo passes out from a tranquilizer and the plot twists and turns as the company tries to cover up the fact that their mega-star won't be singing. A three-time Tony winner, Lend Me A Tenor is replete with mistaken identity, plot twists and double entendres that will leave you teary-eyed with laughter.

Performances: June 25, 26, 27 (matinee), July 2, 3, 9 and 10

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $15.


Bermuda Avenue Triangle

By Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna

Directed by Marilyn Maxwell
Produced by Kristin Harris

Two aging widows, Fannie and Tess, are pushed from NYC to live in a Las Vegas retirement condo by their daughters. Wearing frumpy clothes and rolled up stockings, these ladies are not happy about their new digs in the retirement village, even if they can spot "Julio Iglesias' mother's house" when standing on their tiptoes. But that all changes when the two cross paths with the charming scoundrel, Johnny Paolucci, who rocks both their worlds. Fanny and Tess undergo a grand metamorphosis - from being two, baggy, grey-haired old biddies, into a pair of glam-rock golden girls. Bermuda Avenue Triangle blends heart and humor and proves that there is life after 65!

Please note that Bermuda Avenue Triangle contains adult situations and language.

Performances: September 3, 4, 10, 11, 12 (matinee), 17 and 18

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $15.


Inherit the Wind

By Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee

Directed by John Zimmerman
Produced by Nancy Ridgeway

When science teacher Bertram Cates violates a state law by teaching Darwin's theory of evolution, he finds himself at the center of a court case that resonates around the world. Inspired by the "Scopes Monkey Trial", two legal titans confront each other when this close knit community puts freedom of thought on trial. Inherit the Wind is as relevant today as when it was written and is considered one of the great American dramas of the twentieth century.

Performances: November 5, 6, 12, 13, 14 (matinee), 19 and 20

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
