Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
MUSICAL Aug 25 - Oct 7, 2017
Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in the delightful musical parable. Joseph is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams and being his father’s favorite son. But when his jealous brothers sell him into slavery and he is taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of terrific adventures. This Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. One of the most popular shows we have ever produced. A must-see!

Kiss and Tell
COMEDY Sep 12 - Nov 14, 2017 (MON-TUE Performance)
By F. Hugh Herbert

Hugh Herbert’s 1940’s riotous romp entangles a family feud, a secret marriage, and a madcap dose of mistaken identity! Two teenage girls, Corliss Archer and Mildred Pringle, cause their respective parents much concern when they start to become interested in boys. The parent’s bickering about which girl is the worse influence causes more problems than it solves after both girls sell kisses for charity at the USO bazaar. It’s a “fresh, funny, and completely beguiling comedy about a small town Junior Miss."
