Based on the acclaimed novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist, boundless love prevails over immense fear, menacing bullies, negligent adults, and truly horrifying events.

Twelfth Night   is a classically Shakespearean comedy of unrequited love and gender confusion. When aristocratic twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck (and both think the other is dead), they are forced to fend for themselves in a strange town. Along the way, Viola disguises herself as a man (Cesario) to be near the count she loves, Orsino, who dotes on OIivia. But Olivia, who is idolized by Malvolio, falls for Cesario. Enter Sebastian, a near look-alike of his sister, who resurfaces to heighten the confusion – and comedy – of their romantic predicaments. In this reimagining of   Twelfth Night, director Collette Rutherford transports her cast to a coastal Italian resort town at the height of the 1920s Jazz Age.

Winner of the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Musical, A Chorus Line follows seventeen dancers as they audition for one spot in the “chorus line” of a Broadway musical. After the first round of cuts, the fictionalized show’s choreographer asks the remaining dancers to talk a bit about themselves, revealing their individuality and humanity. Based on the stories of real Broadway dancers, A Chorus Line continues to be as funny, heart wrenching, and refreshingly honest as it was when it opened nearly 50 years ago.

Amidst the chaos, Marisol remains resolute in her mission to salvage what hope remains amidst the rubble of the apocalypse. Winner of the 1993 Obie Award, “Marisol” is a harrowing and timely dark fantasy that keeps you “laughing right through the misery” - Los Angeles Times .

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an irreverent satire that skewers politics, social irresponsibility, and even musicals themselves. After a devastating 20-year drought, the government of a Gotham-like city has banned private toilets, forcing citizens to pay admission to a single, sinister company for one of life’s most basic needs. But a brave hero emerges and decides enough is enough and inspires the town to revolt along with him. Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown has been hailed for its modern wit, outrageous perspective, and cheeky send ups of the musical genre.
