A Bronx Tale: August 26 – September 18, 2022

Welcome to the stoops of the Bronx in 1960, where young Calogero is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be. As Calogero grows up surrounded by the warmth of his caring parents and the protection of local mafia leader Sonny, he must decide who he can truly call his family. A Bronx Tale is a streetwise musical based on the critically acclaimed play that inspired the now classic film.

Paper Thin: October 7 – 23, 2022

It’s just another Tuesday night, Lucrece is tired, and she’s ready to call in the favor that her husband Gerald promised on their wedding night all those years ago: Divorce. The time has come, and now Lucrece is on the roof, taking swigs from the whiskey bottle and doing her best to explain it to their son, Charlie. They’ve had a picture-perfect family, so why would she want to end that now? Sometimes, the only way to keep a family together is to tear them apart. 

Honk!: November 18 – December 18, 2022

Ugly is the odd duck out in the nest, and looks quite a bit different from his darling siblings. Despite his mother’s love and protective flapping, the other barnyard animals are quick to taunt and tease the little duckling. Ugly sets out on a musical adventure of self-discovery and along the way he meets a whole flock of unique characters and learns that being different is not a bad thing after all. 

Stick Fly: January 20 – February 5, 2023

The affluent, African-American LeVay family is gathering at their Martha Vineyard home for the weekend, and brothers Kent and Flip have each brought their respective ladies home to meet the parents for the first time. The two newcomers, one a self-described WASP and the other a middle-class academic Black woman, butt heads over issues of race and privilege, while long-standing family tensions bubble under the surface and reach a boiling point when secrets are revealed. 

Next to Normal: February 24 – March 12, 2023

To an outsider, the Goodmans are an average American family: two hard working parents and two witty teenagers. But on the inside, mom Diana is battling manic depression, daughter Natalie struggles to be the perfect child, son Gabe provokes his mother’s mania, and dad Dan is just trying to keep everyone together. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, sharing the family’s story with love and compassion. 

Something Rotten!: April 21 – May 21, 2023

Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are writing their way through the Renaissance, but are stuck in the shadow of famed playwright William Shakespeare. Sick and tired of failure, Nick visits a less-than-reputable soothsayer, who predicts that musicals will be the next big thing in theatre! The Bottom Brothers scramble to write the world’s first musical while fighting social norms, family struggles, and “The Bard” himself. Will opening night be an over-easy success or a rotten mess?

Dreamgirls: July 7 – August 6, 2023

Meet the Dreams: Effie, Lorrell, and Deena, three young and talented African-American singers in the revolutionary 1960s. Dreamgirls will take you on a journey as the three friends embark on a musical roller coaster through the ruthless world of show business. Their relationships will be put to the test/tested by fame, fortune, and romance as the young women discover that their dreams come at a cost. Featuring iconic songs including “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “Family,” and “I Am Changing,” Dreamgirls explores themes of ambition, hope, and betrayal to a soundtrack of gospel, R&B, pop, disco, and more.
