Upcoming Main Stage Productions
 Steel Magnolias
May 10, 2014 - June 8, 2014
Our most requested dramatic work – an American comedy-drama chronicling the  tribulations  and  friendships  of  six  women  and  deriving  its  title  from  its  female  characters,  whose  personalities  blend  the delicateness of the magnolia with the toughness of steel. The story is based on the experiences of the family and friends of  the author following the 1985 death of his sister from diabetic complications and failure of a family member’s donated kidney after the  birth  of  her  son,  his  namesake  nephew.   The  1989  film,  loosely  based  on  the  play,  won  a  number  of  prestigious  awards, including a 1990 Golden Globe award for Julia Roberts as Best Supporting Actress. You will be mesmerized by the individual and  collective  talents  of  an  incredible  cast,  directed  by  Helen  Hayes  award  winner  Sherri  Edelen,  one  of  the  metropolitan Washington area’s most prominent actresses.
 West Side Story
June 14, 2014 - August 3, 2014
The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical widely considered as one of the American musical theatre's finest works.  Shakespeare's  Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, where two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “Americanized” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks.  Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.  A vibrant and  sophisticated musical score by Leonard Bernstein features songs that have become embedded in our nation’s musical heritage:   Something’s Comin’, Maria, Tonight, America, and Somewhere.  You’ll be immersed in the excitement and emotional impact of this groundbreaking show!
 Hank Williams: Lost Highway
August 9, 2014 - September 14, 2014
An edgy, energetic  country-musical journey of the legendary singer-songwriter’s rise from humble beginnings in Louisiana to triumph on the Grand Ole Opry stage and eventual self-destruction at age 29.  As you experience the feel of a blistering Hank onstage, you’ll be treated to fresh and forceful renditions of his songs, among these I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, Move It on Over, and Hey, Good Lookin’, accompanied by an authentic country-western band.  The New York critics called this production “smart, sweet, and poignant – had us hank-ering for more!”
 Monty Python's Spamalot
September 20, 2014 - November 16, 2014
Lovingly and unapologetically “ripped off” from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this spoof of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table features a bevy of beautiful show girls, personable cows, killer rabbits, and French characters.  Stretching the imagination in its retelling of the legendary tale of Camelot, it has been performed worldwide in multiple languages and “raises silliness to an art form,” while winning three Tony awards as Best Musical following its 2005 Broadway debut.  Only recently made available to professional regional theaters, this smash Broadway hit is a “must-see” for audiences who appreciate a rollicking good time and an escape from the mundane into the realm depicted by The Bright Side of Life.
 It's A Wonderful Life
November 22, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Based on Frank Capra’s beloved and timeless movie, this joyful musical adaptation written by the award-winning team of Susan and Philip Kern and Jerry Lowe closely follows the original story of George Bailey and his satisfying life in Bedford Falls, New York.  After despairing over a serious setback to his family-owned savings and loan company, George contemplates committing suicide in order to cash in on his life insurance. But before he makes his leap into eternity, George’s guardian angel Clarence, who has yet to earn his wings, intervenes and reveals how different the world and everyone in George’s life would be had he never been born.  Through a series of “flashbacks,” George eventually comes to realize that his life truly is worth living and that everything he has is everything a man could want.  Filled with memorable songs and Norman Rockwell moments that evoke the nostalgia of small-town life in 1940s America, this production is sure to warm your heart and make your holiday season especially bright.
 The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber
January 10, 2015 - March 1, 2015
Thrill to the signature songs from the most acclaimed musical theatre composer of the past five decades,  with excerpts from  Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Starlight Express, Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Sunset Boulevard, Aspects of Love, and Requiem, delivered by a select ensemble of superb singer-dancers and award-winning actors.  Artistic Director Patrick A’Hearn (an original member of the Michael Crawford cast) directs a powerful and sophisticated theatrical experience that includes the songs The Music of the Night, Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, Any Dream Will Do, Memory, Pié Jesu, Superstar, and Love Changes Everything.
 9 to 5 - The Musical
March 7, 2015 - May 3, 2015
Pushed to the boiling point at their workplace, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.  In an ingenious conspiracy to gain control of the company, the girls discover that there’s nothing that they can’t do  – even in a late-1970s man’s world.  Adapted from  the hit movie with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, this outrageous, thought-provoking, and lightly romantic mixture of friendship and revenge in the “Rolodex era” provides a glimpse into taking care of business with a not-so-soft feminine touch.  We anticipate the return of TV and film star Sally Struthers to enhance a stellar cast belting out songs varying from the hilarious to the downright suggestive.  Reserve early!
