 SUMMER 2016 SEASON

June 16 - 26
Avenue Q
Music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx / Book by Jeff Whitty 

Ever wish Cookie Monster would show up to teach you the life lessons you need as a grown up?  That’s Avenue Q!  Peopled by both live actors and puppets, this R-rated Sesame Street was the winner of the TONY Awards for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE, and BEST BOOK.  AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart!  

 

June 30 - July 10
Shooting Star
by Steven Dietz

Another comedy from the author of last season’s surprise hit, Becky’s New Car. Two college sweethearts reunite by chance, 30 years later, stranded together in a snowed-in airport. Once it’s clear they can’t avoid each other, the evening gives way to laughter, remembrance and fireworks.

 

July 14 - 24
Peter and the Starcatcher
A Play by Rick Elise /  Music by Wayne Barker / Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

The Neverland you never knew! This spectacular grown up’s prequel to Peter Pan will win the hearts of adults and children alike. A swash-buckling, rollicking musical imagining of how Peter became the boy who wouldn’t grow up! 

 

July 28 - August 7
The Foreigner
by Larry Shue

Vacation can be torture for painfully shy Charlie, who finds it impossible to talk to strangers. To avoid small talk, he poses as a foreigner who doesn’t understand English. His plan backfires and chaos ensues when the locals start revealing deep secrets and diabolical plans in front of their quiet guest. An absurdly funny American comedy!

 

August 11- 21
The Cookie Fight
a world premiere comedy by Judith Leora

Joy and her brothers return home to divide their mother’s estate...including the last ball of frozen dough for Mom’s Christmas cookies. Mix in family secrets, sibling rivalry, and old flames rekindled, and this world premiere comedy is a recipe for dysfunctional family fun. 

 

August 25 - September 4
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
 by Jeffrey Hatcher

In this chilling new version of the classic tale of good and evil, six actors create a London held in the grip of the barbaric but charismatic Mr. Hyde.
