August 8 – August 25




Orchestrations by Danny Troob

It’s the classic story that we all grew up loving.  A story of boy finds girl, boy loses girl, boy finds girl again, and they all live happily ever after. A lush score by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein feature beloved songs like “In My Own Little Corner”, “Impossible”, and “Ten Minutes Ago”. And, with a revised book, by Tony nominated playwright, Douglas Carter Beane, Cinderella will not only enchant you with it’s show-stopping numbers, but will keep you laughing well past midnight. No pumpkins were hurt during the staging of this show.

Torch Song
by Harvey Fierstein
September 19 – September 29


 

In Torch Song – the two-act revival of Harvey Fierstein’s award-winning Torch Song Trilogy – the life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s. Told with a likable, human voice, Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Woman In Black
by Stephen Malatratt
based on the novel by Susan Hill
October 17 – November 3


The framework of this spine-tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. Anyone who sees her dies! The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. A classic of the genre.

Charles Dickens ‘
A Christmas Carol
