ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE

Back by overwhelming popular request, ALWAYS... PATSY CLINE is a moving and tuneful tribute lovingly told through the eyes of Patsy’s best friend and biggest fan, Louise. This crowd pleaser is the touching musical that follows the girl with the big voice and even bigger heart from live radio through her fame at the Grand Ole Opry, to her early tragic death. Patsy’s vocal stylings are reborn in heart-felt renditions of “I Fall To Pieces,” “Crazy” and over 20 more of her fabulous hits. Always, in our memories! Always, a star!

February 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 2023

I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE!

I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! is the witty musical revue that pays tribute to all of us who have ever failed at love, and to those who refuse to fail. From dating and waiting, to love and marriage, through in-laws and infants, to pick-up tips for seniors, the mating game is celebrated in all its glorious pain and joy. An insightful and hilarious musical, this celebrated comedy is the second-longest running OffBroadway musical of all time and will have audiences shouting, "This is my life!”

April 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, May 5, 6, 2023

The price of Show Only Tickets has increased from $18 to $20. Dinner and Show remains $40.

THE MUSIC MAN

THE MUSIC MAN follows fast-talking salesman Harold Hill who spells out “trouble” in his best sales pitch as he cons the people of River City into organizing a boys’ band, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. Harold doesn’t count on falling in love with the town librarian however, and what ensues is a fast-paced romantic comedy the whole family will love!

July 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 2023 The price of Show Only Tickets has increased from $18 to $20. Dinner and Show remains $40.
