Adapted from the hilarious screen success Some Like It Hot, Sugar recreates the same memorable Jack Lemon, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe classic characters of Jerry, Joe, and Sugar. This prohibition era, zany musical farce romps from Chicago to Miami, promising gangster chases, train rides, boat rides, cross-dressing, confused proposals, millionaires, and starving musicians. Truly a ride worth reserving!

Factory Girls by Frank McGuinness directed by Tom Isbell

Dudley Experimental Theatre, Marshall Performing Arts Center

From the renowned Irish playwright Frank McGuinness comes this funny and compassionate play that tells the story of five women working in a shirt factory in northern Ireland. Faced with the threat of redundancy, they come together through song, laughter and protest to stand up for their rights, revealing their innermost hopes and fears in the process. A beautiful, engaging play that tugs at the heartstrings.
