The Drowsy Chaperone

September 25 to October 11, 2009

The Drowsy Chaperone begins with the audience being greeted by the narrator, Man in the Chair, sitting on a darkened stage. He is a fan of vintage musicals who seems to be suffering from the blues, and he quickly decides to cheer things up by playing a record of the original cast recording of a (fictional) Broadway musical entitled “The Drowsy Chaperone”. No sooner has the needle touched the record than we, together with the narrator, are transported to a 1928 Broadway theater and into a play-within-a‐play crammed full of every cliché, gag and gimmick from the golden age of musicals.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas

December 4 to 20, 2009

Two army buddies from World War II have become a very successful song and dance team. They meet up with two sisters and follow the girls to their next show at an inn in Vermont. Arriving at the inn, they discover it’s empty—no snow!—but the innkeeper turns out to be their beloved former commanding general. The boys decide to try to drum up some business for the old man by bringing in their whole show…and ultimately their whole division. But not without mishaps! Hit songs include: “Blue Skies”, “Count Your Blessings”, “Sisters”, and of course, “White Christmas”.

The Joy Luck Club

Based on the beloved book by Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club tells the story of four older Chinese‐-American women and their complex relationships with their American-‐born daughters. Eight voices, all compelling, tell dozens of emotional, tightly woven stories. The play moves between China in the early 1900s to San Francisco in the 1980s, as the eight women struggle to reach across a seemingly impassable chasm of culture, generation and expectations to find strength and happiness. A must-see for mothers and daughters (and whole families) of all ethnicities.

SHOUT! flips through the years like a musical magazine and takes you back to the music, the fashion and the freedom of the ’60s—with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Everything from the period is recreated—from the fashions and the dances, to the music and the hair. A non‐stop journey through the infectious and soulful pop songs, such as “To Sir With Love”, “Downtown”, “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”, “Georgy Girl”, and “Windy”, which made household names of stars like Lulu, Petula Clark, and Dusty Springfield.

SHOUT! is recommended for audiences ages 13 years and older due to adult content.
