With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations... and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt!

Hilarious, brassy, and surprisingly touching, VICTOR/VICTORIA is a sophisticated musical comedy based on the acclaimed movie from director Blake Edwards. In jazz-age Paris, singer Victoria Grant struggles to make ends meet. With some help from her flamboyant friend Toddy, Victoria ultimately achieves stardom by masquerading as a man, “Count Victor Grazinski,” who performs as a female impersonator. When macho businessman King Marchan develops feelings for “Victor” and Victoria reciprocates, comic hijinks ensue.

Victor/Victoria is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark, A Concord Theatricals Company www.tamswitmark.com

Book, Music, Lyrics, and Directed by Dennis T. Giacino

Poisoned apples…glass slippers…Prince Charming. Who needs ’em? In this Disney-Princesses-Bridesmaids, hysterical and very direct musical, Snow White and her possé of sassy princesses prove that everyone has a dark side when they toss off their tiaras in an absurdly cheeky (and definitely NOT for the kiddies!) theatrical romp that’s anything but Grimm. Cinderella is kind of a nitwit; Snow White can be a little mean, and Sleeping Beauty? Apparently, she’s narcoleptic… and all three are “disenchanted.” When it comes to fairy-tale princesses, those are the “Big Three,” but they’re not the way Disney, let alone the Brothers Grimm, created them!

Adult Languages and Themes. Recommended for PG-13 and up

DISENCHANTED! is produced through special arrangement with Dennis T. Giancino (www.officialdisenchantedmusical.com)
