Fran Loesser's celebrated Musical Comedy about rolling the dice and falling in love under the bright lights of Broadway.  Guys & Dolls is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy for all ages!

Set in a mythical New York City, Guys & Dolls tells the tall of one Nathan Detroit, a guy who needs a venue for his "permanently established floating craps game." His best venue falls through and he needs money to underwrite an alternative option.  He turns to Sky Masterson, a high roller who will be on anything if the stakes are high enough.  Desperate for a sure thing, Nathan bets Sky he can't get a date with Sarah Brown, the earnest proprietor of the Save-a-Soul mission.  

Things don't go as planned and, along the way, you are treated to some of the most memorable Broadway tunes: Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat, Sue Me, A Bushel and a Peck... and more.

The no-nonsense Otis family from New York buys an old mansion in rural England, scoffing at warnings of its fierce ghost. But it’s true – the spirit of Sir Simon Canterville has haunted his homestead for more than 500 years. The nobleman is appalled at this invasion by Americans and is determined to scare them out – or worse. This re-telling of the well-known short story is complete with the creaking floorboards and clanking chains of a traditional English ghost story and the wonderful humor of Oscar Wilde.

"All the world's a stage," declares Jacques in Shakespeare's delightful pastoral comedy As You Like It, "and all the men and women merely players." Come play with us as Rosalind, Orlando, Celia, and the clown Touchstone journey into the Forest of Arden for adventures both romantic and ridiculous.

Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare, is a beautiful story of loss and renewal, filled with the delightful chaos of mistaken identity, and unrequited love. After Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are separated after a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy to survive as a servant of the Duke Orsino. She is set the task to woo the lady Olivia is her master’s stead even as she herself falls in love with Orsino, while Olivia falls in love with the disguised Viola. How will these crossed lovers ever come to a happy conclusion?
