Crazy for You
The curtain opens backstage at the Zangler Theater in 1930s New York. The last performance of The Zangler Follies is wrapping up for the season. Bobby Child, the rich son of a banking family, is hoping for an audition with Zangler. Bobby gets his audition…but fails to impress the impresario. His next stop? Deadrock, Nevada! Full of high-energy Gershwin tunes: “I Got Rhythm”, “Naughty Baby”, “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”, “Nice Work if You Can Get It”, “Embraceable You”, and “Someone to Watch Over Me”.
Based On The Novel
Louisa May Alcott
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel, Little Women follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. Alcott’s theme of family solidarity – especially the powerful bond between sisters, made her a best-selling author. As a musical, Little Women reinforces that theme, and guarantees a night filled with laughter and tears. The show portrays the four young women as they navigate their ways through the later teen years, debating questions that will resonate with women today.
I Hate Hamlet
A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play “Hamlet” in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches. Andrew’s series has been canceled and he hates “Hamlet”. His dilemma deepens with the arrival of John Barrymore’s ghost, dressed in high Shakespeare garb. From that moment on, Andrew’s life is no longer his own!

“Anna And The King Of Siam” By Margaret Landon
The King and I

After a rocky start, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story. Musical highlights: “I Whistle a Happy Tune”, “Getting to Know You”, “Hello Young Lovers”, “Something Wonderful” and “Shall We Dance”.

Altar Boyz is the hilarious account of a struggling Christian boy-band (with one nice Jewish boy) looking for their big break in the Big Apple. The show tells the story of five small-town boys – Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham – trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious but irreverent pop act, worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple? Full of sharp parody, spectacular dancing, and irreverent humor, this musical is 90 minutes of pure delight that’s suitable for all ages.

Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, who has a passion for dancing, wins a spot on the local TV dance program. Overnight, she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. But Tracy’s world doesn’t stay so rosy, as she runs into trouble when she tries to expand the show so she can dance with her black friends, which is easier said than done in 1962. A musical-comedy phenomenon (with hit songs like “Good Morning Baltimore”, “You Can’t Stop the Beat”), Hairspray inspired a major motion picture and won the 2003 Tony Awards Best Musical.
