The Last 5 Years
The Last 5 Years

March 21st - May 18th, 2014
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm

Jamie and Cathy tell the story of their failed five-year relationship but in an unusual twist, Jamie tells it from the beginning to the end; Cathy tells it from the end to the beginning. Poignantly the timelines intersect in the middle, making it the only time the characters directly interact. Winner of numerous awards, the true story of The Last Five Years is an emotionally charged and moving musical drama.

Biloxi Blues
Biloxi Blues

June 6th - July 27th, 2014
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm

When Brooklyn’s Eugene Morris Jerome is drafted into the Army during World War II, he is sent a world away for boot camp…to Deep South Biloxi, Mississippi!  Neil Simon’s autobiographical coming-of-age comedy is as brash and hilarious today as when it made its Los Angeles premiere more than 30 years ago!

July 11th - August 3rd, 2014
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Saturday & Sundays at 2 pm (No Sat. Matinee 7/19)

The music is tantalizing and the drinks are plenty as lives intertwine in a dingy prewar 1930s Berlin café.   British singer Sally Bowles entrances patrons with Academy Award winning musical numbers including “Money, Money”, “Maybe This Time”; and signature song “Cabaret.”   It’s seedy, it’s bawdy, it’s Cabaret!  Willkommen!

Bye Bye Birdie
Bye Bye Birdie

April 11th - May 4th, 2014
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Saturdays & Sundays at 2 pm
No shows on Saturday April 26 - additional performances on Sunday April 27 at 6pm and Thursday May 1 at 7:30

A bubbly musical classic that harkens to days of innocence.  When Elvis-like heartthrob Conrad Birdie offers a contest to kiss one girl in America before he ships off to the army, the scene turns to the winner from Ohio, and the zany reactions to her winning.  The show resounds with classic musical theatre numbers such asA Lot of Livin' to Do andPut on a Happy Face.
