Summer Shows You Don't Want to Miss:


HAIRSPRAY (musical)
Directed by Pam Orear
July 13 - July 21
HAIRSPRAY delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 50's are out -- and change is in the air.  Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the “Corny Collins” television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?

Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA SCHOOL EDITION is a contemporary musical take on a grand classic tale of the timeless bond between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier. As forbidden love blossoms between them, the young lovers are forced to face death or part forever. Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity. With a pop-rock score that features stirring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA SCHOOL EDITION is a modern crowd pleaser that includes exuberant dancing, staging and singing. Rated PG
