Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps! This hilarious whodunit features over 150 zany characters (played by a very talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance. The Tony Award-winning comedy follows the dashingly handsome Richard Hannay, who, after meeting Annabella Schmidt at a London theatre, is plunged head first into an adventure that will see him being chased by the police for a murder he did not commit.

In this coming-of-age story, Jay’s life is turned upside down when his father leaves Jay and his younger brother Arty at their grandmother’s doorstep. Their grandmother is an opinionated German Jewish immigrant who shares her home with her daughter Bella and son Louie, who is hiding from the mob. The upcoming year will leave a permanent mark on Jay and his highly dysfunctional family. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, and as comical as it is poignant, Lost in Yonkers is the masterwork of Neil Simon's career and is certain to leave you spellbound with laughter and tears.

Combining down-home county humor and heartache, the show features 27 of Patsy Cline’s unforgettable hits including Crazy, Walkin’ After Midnight, and Sweet Dreams. Directed by Susan D. Atkinson

Called by Time magazine, "A triumph for the stage," this Tony Award-winning musical is a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America. It tells the extraordinary tale of three families as they confront America's timeless contradictions of freedom and prejudice, wealth and poverty, hope and despair, and what it means to be an American. With an unforgettable and powerful score, this must-see musical is filled with show-stopping songs such as Journey On, Wheels of a Dream, Back to Before and Our Children. Directed by Keith Baker

When one man’s quest to do right is at odds with the interests of his community, ethics are pitted against economics. Join us for Henrik Ibsen’s explosive drama, An Enemy of the People. Ringing with contemporary resonance as headlines debate the thin line between whistleblower and traitor, this play asks us just what is best for the common good. Our protagonist Dr. Stockmann discovers a possible toxic contamination endangering the town’s sole industry. His brother, the Mayor, launches a counter attack that threatens to tear their community—and family—apart. Sometimes “the strongest man in the world is the man who stands most alone.” Directed by Susan D. Atkinson
