THE LAST

A Comedy with Music

LIfeboaT

By Stephen Temperley This comedy is on the life story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy eccentric who suffered under the delusion that she was a great operatic soprano when, in fact, she could not sing two consecutive notes in tune. The story, by turns hilarious and poignant, is one of real friendship and affection. You won’t want to miss this funny show.

Music & Lyrics by Richard M. & Robert B. Sherman Book by Julian Fellowes Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! may be the only way to describe this uplifting musical based on the 1964 Walt Disney film and the books by P.L. Travers. Don’t miss your chance to see this iconic bit of childhood come to life.

By Luke Yankee This fast-paced and intense drama tells the story of J. Bruce Ismay who built the Titanic. Aboard the ship on that fateful night he tried to save as many passengers as possible then stepped into the last lifeboat. This January, experience what history can’t forget from a perspective it never considered.

By David Lindsay-Abaire In this Pulitzer Prize winning drama a young couple suffers a loss that sends them down the rabbit hole of grief and leaves them drifting apart. This satisfying production will lead you to realize that sometimes the only way out is through, and somewhere between grief and peace must lie forgiveness.

WALTDISNEY’S

Co m e d

By Rachel Sheinkin A hilarious take on middle schoolaged overachievers (portrayed by adults) as they compete for a slot in the National Spelling Bee. This interactive musical puts their hopes, dreams, and angst under a musical microscope. You will fall in love, both with the show and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers!
