The word's longest running musical which ran off-Broadway for 42 years! This funny and romantic musical tells an allegorical story concerning two neighboring fathers who trick their children into falling in love by pretending to feud.

October 27 - 29, 2022

The cult classic 1975 movie will be shown behind a full costumed cast performing and singing all the scenes of the movie in sync with the film. A flop when it was first released, it's since gained a fervent global fan following. A fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock 'n roll all rolled into one in this hilarious horror parody. Audience participation with appropriate bags of prop kits will be available to purchase at the theater. To encourage the safety and enjoyment of the film by all in attendance, any bags brought to the theater could be subjected to a search for non-allowable items. Dress-up by audience members is encouraged!!!

A joyful play that "hits all the right notes"! Clever and funny as well as inspiring. If you love Handel's Messiah, this play is a MUST SEE! This play has the feel of a juicy soap opera, with dueling diva sopranos, a plot combining religious protest, political alienation, social humiliation, and a sex scandal. Based on actual historical facts, George Frederick Handel is in trouble: his last opera flopped, he is no longer in favor with King George II and preachers are raging that his latest work is blasphemous. In this climate, he struggles to present "The Messiah." Handel's travails are linked with those of his leading soprano. Forced into retirement because of a scandal, she is slated to make her comeback in his new masterpiece and fears a nasty reception. A malicious, back stabbing alternate is waiting in the wings to replace her. A devious bishop and Handel's bulky librettist add to the conflict in this true story of the politics and passion that nearly prevented "The Messiah" from ever being performed.

“Drop Dead! will make your jaw drop and your head spin almost simultaneously, but you will be laughing the whole time!”
This screwball comedy is a play within a play, with a truly bad script and out-of-control egos. An odd-ball cast of has-been actors revive their careers in “Drop Dead!,” a potboiler murder mystery directed by a character named Victor Le Pewe. At the dress rehearsal, the set falls, props break, and the producer and an actor are murdered. But the show must go on! During the opening night performance, the murders continue. The remaining thespians must save the show and their careers, solve the mystery, and stay alive for curtain call.

Twelve Angry Men is a play by Reginald Rose adapted from his 1954 teleplay of the same title for the CBS Studio One anthology television series. Staged first in San Francisco in 1955, the Broadway debut came 50 years after CBS aired the play, on October 28, 2004, by the Roundabout Theatre Company at the American Airlines Theatre, where it ran for 328 performances.

The play explores the deliberations of a jury of a homicide trial, in which a dozen "men with ties and a coat" decide the fate of a teenager accused of murdering his abusive father. At the beginning, they are nearly unanimous in concluding the youth is guilty. One man dissents, declaring him "not guilty", and he sows a seed of reasonable doubt. Eventually he convinces the other jurors to support a unanimous "not guilty" verdict.
