Sept. 15-24 2017: The Wizard of Oz
When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy Gale and her, Toto, are whisked away in their House to the magical land of Oz. In order to get back home, they must follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard and en route they meet the lovable characters you have adored for years including the Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage.

Oct. 27 – Nov. 4 2017: Evil Dead the Musical
This hilarious show takes all the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them into one of the craziest experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash and evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s up to Ash, a housewares employee turned demon killing hero, and his trust chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies, limbs are dismembered, demons tell bad jokes, and all to music! With an incredible combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead the Musical is unlike and show you’ve seen. While the Evil Dead films are the definition of cult movies, as a stage show Evil Dead the Musical has become a cult sensation of its own. Mature audiences only due to language.

April 27-May 6 2018: The Death and Life of Sneaky Fitch

To the ambitious little town of Gopher Gulch, Sneaky Fitch is an abrasive disgrace, no-good, drunken, brawling, nuisance. When he falls ill, there is a sigh of relief, and when he apparently dies (thanks to some suspicious “medicine” administered by the departing Doc Burch) there are a few tears. But when Sneaky rises from his coffin the picture changes, for no one dares confront a man who has come back from the dead. Capitalizing on his own “invincibility”, Sneaky soon takes over sheriff, mayor, and town banker. This rip-roaring comedy will  leave you in stitches.

Aug. 17-26 2018: Happy Days the Musical

Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph, and the unforgettable “king of cool” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures television series, Happy Days, A New Musical reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams — yes, Howard, Marion, and Joanie, the Fonz, and all the gang are here– to a whole new generation of kids and parents.
