2017-18 season Facebook cover photo

We are proud to present our 2017/2018 season!

Coming December 2, 2017 – Dreaming of a White Christmas, a musical holiday celebration! This will be another installment in our Songs of the Stage series. Join us to sing songs from your favorite holiday movies. Audition information and performance location TBA, so check back for updates!

Coming Spring of 2018 – Arsenic and Old Lace. Mortimer Brewster always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene — his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure — but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan (who strangely now resembles Boris Karloff) returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé — all while trying to keep his own sanity as well. Join us for this hilarious show! Audition and performance information coming soon!

Coming Summer of 2018 – Shrek the Musical! Based on the popular movie, Shrek the Musical is a one-of-a-kind, hilarious fairy tale in which curses are reversed, monsters get the girls, donkeys and dragons find love, and princesses are beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Audition and performance information coming soon!
