Tell Me on a Sunday
August 16 - September 1, 2019
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Don Black
A young English girl has just arrived in New York, brimming with optimism. She sets out to find success, companionship and, of course, love. Through anxieties, frustrations, and heartaches, she begins to wonder if she’s looking for love in the wrong places. This one-woman musical takes a humorous look at oddities such as California’s penchants for capped teeth, Caesar salads, and sandwiches that are too big for the average mouth.
Brighton Beach Memoirs
October 4 - 20, 2019
By Neil Simon
Based loosely on the author himself, Eugene Jerome is growing up in 1937, living with his family in Brooklyn. Dreaming of baseball and girls, he copes with his formidable mother, his overworked father, his worldly older brother, a widowed aunt with two girls of her own, and the eccentricities of their neighbors. It’s a recipe for hilarity, served up by the master of comedy – the author of The Odd Couple and Barefoot in the Park.
The Doggonest Christmas
December 6 - 22, 2019
Based on the book by Richard L. Stack
Miss Ellie gives a home to lost dogs, and her latest guest is Josh, a puppy who desperately wants to be a hero – a Saint Bernard. He gets his chance when Santa Claus and his reindeer get trapped by a snow storm and must be rescued. Josh becomes the most famous dog in the community, adored by his fellow-mutts, Miss Ellie, and another neighbor, whose own set of huskies helps him deliver the mail by sled. It’s a family-friendly tale worthy of the holiday season.
You Can't Take It With You
February 7 - 23, 2020
By Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman
One member of the Sycamore family makes fireworks in the basement. One has a printing press in the parlor. One practices ballet all the time without getting any better. One writes bad plays that no one ever reads. The tax collector is told by the family patriarch that he hasn’t paid his taxes for years because he doesn’t believe in the income tax. The story reaches a comic climax when an upper-class couple comes to dinner on the wrong night and is assailed by all the mayhem. But if the Sycamore family is mad, it becomes clear that the rest of the world is madder.
April 10 - 26, 2020
By David Lindsay-Abaire
The cantankerous Abby is faced with sharing her senior living quarters with Marilyn, a new arrival, so Abby has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a game of one-upmanship, which reveals the tenacity of these worthy opponents. Amid funny lines and situations, deeper truths emerge.
Little Shop of Horrors

Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman, Music by Alan Menken
In this deviously delicious smash hit musical, the meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant – a singing carnivore that promises unending fame and fortune as long as Seymour keeps feeding it BLOOD! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows in 30 years, this tongue-in-cheek comedy brings laughter, tears, and toe-tapping tunes.
