Great Gatsby posterThe Great Gatsby

This cracker-jack adaptation by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel roars in with flappers and flashy men, with snappy dressers, and bootlegging dreamers!  Staged by W. Stuart McDowell, our production brings you Fitzgerald’s 1920’s world of glitz and flash, of passion and obsession, of fast cars and fast times. Considered by many to be the greatest of all American novels, honoring its 90th anniversary!

Chicago PosterChicago

Sassy, brassy, haughty, naughty - this electrifying musical continues our ‘20’s theme with the sensational trials of Roxie and Velma, featuring the hit songs “Cell Block Tango”, “All That Jazz”, “Mr. Cellophane” and “Razzle Dazzle.” Directed by Joe Deer, and choreographed by Teressa McWilliams, CHICAGO will dazzle you with fabulous dances and thrilling music.  And trust me, we’ll be sold out before we open!
