UPCOMING Performances:

Performance: And Miss Reardon Drinks A LittleOpen in a New Window

by Paul Zindel

Oct 2 - 5, 2014

Maddox Theatre

The three Reardon sisters have grown up in a house of women, dominated by their mother, who is only recently dead. But time has erased the tender closeness of girlhood; one sister has married and cut herself off; another has begun to drink more than she should; and the third, after a scandalous incident at the school where she teaches, is on the brink of madness. When the married sister comes to dinner to press the need for committing her sibling to an institution, the simmering resentments of many years burst alive and are exacerbated by the intrusion of a well-meaning but boorish neighbor couple, whose unexpected arrival impels the action towards its shattering conclusion—in which all the pathos, humor and searing honesty of the play combine with overwhelming effect.

 

Performance: Babes In ArmsOpen in a New Window

Music by Richard Rodgers

Lyrics by Lorenz Hart

Book by George Oppenheimer

Nov. 20 - 23, 2014
Maddox Theatre

The quintessential "Hey kids, let’s put on a show!” musical boasts one of the greatest scores ever written. Songs include My Funny Valentine, Where or When, I Wish I Were in Love Again, The Lady is a Tramp and Johnny One-Note. Set in a summer stock theatre, the plot concerns a group of young apprentices and their conviction to mount the original revue they have created while dodging the underhanded attempts of the surly theatre owner to squash their attempts at every turn.  Further complications are provided by the overbearing stage mother of an ex-child star and the inflated ego of a hack Southern playwright. But of course the show must go on, and so it does in a resolution of comeuppance, reconciliation and romance.

 

Performance: DogfightOpen in a New Window

Music and Lyrics by  Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

Book by Peter Duchan

Based on the Warner Bros. film and screenplay by Bob Comfort

Feb 26 - Mar 1, 2015

Maddox Theatre

On the eve of their deployment, November, 1963, to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion. DOGFIGHT is a musical adaptation of the 1991 film of the same name.

 

Performance: Love's Labor's LostOpen in a New Window

by William Shakespeare

Apr 30 - May 3, 2015

Maddox Theatre

The King of Navarre and his three academic-minded friends, for the sake of their studies, vow to abstain from food, sleep and, of course, women for three years. No sooner have they finalized their agreement than the kingdom is visited by the beautiful princess of France and her three tempting ladies. Hormones may be stronger than their wills. The king, also smitten, finds himself reigning over, but not successfully reining in, the court’s amorous men who take to writing love letters that of course are misdelivered. After disguising themselves as men from Moscow and making complete fools of themselves, the King and his friends realize that they truly love the ladies. Surrounding this plot is another one of a wandering Spaniard in search of love; a country maid pursued by a silly clown and confused academics. However, this merry comedy ends with a twist making it one of Shakespeare’s most memorable romantic comedies.
