A musical with book, music, and lyrics by RICHARD O’BRIEN
October 18 - November 3, 2019
This underground stage hit became the cult classic Tim Curry film (The Rocky Horror Picture Show). Sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite mad scientist. With elaborate dances and rock songs, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever.

When a department store Santa claims he’s the real Kris Kringle, his case gets taken all the way to the Supreme Court, and a little girl’s belief makes the difference in the “miracle.” Boasting an original score—plus jazzy arrangements of popular Christmas songs—this timeless story of skepticism and faith is told from an old-school radio studio, complete with improvised sound effects. It’s an unforgettable experience for the whole family.

Mystery by Agatha Christie
The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house that’s cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. Who can it be? One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.
A musical with book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin
When a parishioner volunteers to donate $10,000 to the Little Sisters of Hoboken’s school if they will perform in a club in Las Vegas, Mother Superior is hesitant to accept. After being convinced by the other sisters that “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” she agrees. Naughty nun hijinks ensue in this Vegas-themed Nunsense sequel.
A comedy by Noel Coward
A novelist invites an eccentric medium to conduct a séance at his house, with the aim of gathering material for his next book. Unexpectedly, the medium conjures up the reappearance of his first wife (who died five years earlier). Since his “ghost” wife cannot be seen or heard by his current wife, he finds himself torn between the two women in a comedic story about ghosts, ex-wives, and next wives.
Adapted by JOSEPH ROBINETTE
Based on the book by E.B. WHITE
This is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. All the charm, wisdom, and joy of the E.B. White original are captured in this adaptation by Joseph Robinette. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in the “real people’s world.”
Lyrics by TIM RICE
Music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
One of the most enduring shows of all time, this gem from Andrew Lloyd Webber (the composer of The Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar among many others) is a reimagining of the biblical story of Joseph and the coat of many colors. This magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads, to country-western and calypso.
