The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee poster image

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, created by Rebecca Feldman, is the hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent super spellers vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The Tony Award winning show features an unlikely cast of heroes – quirky, yet charming outsiders who only fit in at the spelling bee. The musical features some mature content and is recommended for an adult audience.

Directed by Beth Dunham.

Leading Ladies Poster Image

Leading Ladies is a hilarious comedy by Ken Ludwig, the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo. Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there's a wide world out there, but it's not until she meets "Maxine and Stephanie" that she finally gets a taste of it.

Gypsy Poster Image

The summer musical, Gypsy, is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee and was a project of producer David Merrick and actress Ethel Merman. Determined to make her young, blonde, and beautiful daughter, June, a vaudeville headliner, willful, resourceful, domineering stage mother Rose Hovick will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. She drags June and her shy, awkward, and decidedly less-talented older sister, Louise, around the country in an effort to get them noticed. Favorite songs include: "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Let Me Entertain You," and "Small World.”

And Then There Were None poster Image

Agatha Christie And Then There Were None - Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island, lured there by an absent host or hostess. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go! A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death until there were none. As the number of survivors decreases, they begin to believe that the killer is one of the group, but are unable to decide who.

A Christmas Carol poster Image

Wrapping up the season is the classic holiday favorite, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The story tells of bitter and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge's ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation resulting from supernatural visits from Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. A Christmas Carol remains popular, has never been out of print and has been adapted to film, stage, opera, and other media multiple times.
