The Rita Rose Show:
A delightful combination of music and comedy lights up the stage as we are magically transported to the late 1950's and treated to a refeshing spin on the music of the season with a flavorful twist of Rockabilly. You won't be able to stop your toes from tapping to the tunes as only the lovely incomparible Rita Rose can belt them out while her wit and wisdom keeps you smiling from start to finish.
Performances include Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3pm.
January 16 - 31
Based on an idea they first played around with in 1976, started working on in earnest in 1985, Loren Comitor and Karolus Smejda's first musical, Gettin' Down With the Joneses, focuses on a world that's always ripe for satirical exploration, especially given downsizing, hostile takeovers, and a competitive global economy: upper-middle-class corporate America.
Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.
This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.
February 20 - March 7
Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's.

Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong!
An isolated millionaire who only communicates with his staff through closed-circuit televisions is suddenly menaced by a killer, in this rarely produced Rupert Holmes thriller.
