  • Musical

This musical, crafted to make audiences’ hearts sing, features songs of love, heartbreak, family and faith. Legendary Ladies of Country is a joyous celebration of the power and resilience women discover within themselves as they travel down life’s highway of young love, marriage, heartbreak (and revenge!), and motherhood. As they come to the far end of that journey, they find they have accumulated a wellspring of wisdom to pass along to their daughters, as the unbroken circle begins all over again.

The show pays tribute to current and legendary country greats such as The Carter Family (June, Carlene and Mother Maybelle), Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Kitty Wells, Lynn Anderson, Reba McEntire, The Judds, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Tammy Wynette, Patty Loveless, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Loretta Lynn and the Dixie Chicks.

Three Quarter Inches of Sky by Sherry Kramer
February 5 and 6, 2018 at 7 p.m.

The play is a meditation about memory—how we make it, how it makes us. It also is in conversation with our new technologically mediated selves. We are filled with vivid, tender, heartbreaking, exciting memories that aren’t actually ours, but look and feel like they are. We have an intimate relationship with wraiths. It’s changed the way we dream. It’s changed the way our dreams shape us. And it’s changed the world.

Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect – a convent!  It features an all-new original '70s disco score with lush and infectious songs by 8-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (Beauty and the BeastThe Little MermaidLittle Shop of HorrorsNewsies).  Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.

Many of the original cast members are returning to thrill and delight audiences!  Artistic Director Michael Brindisi shares, “There’s no doubt about it; this is a feel-good crowd-pleaser. They took a good movie and made it into an even better Broadway musical with a fresh, funny and fast-paced story and big glitzy musical numbers that will make people want to get up and dance.  With this astoundingly talented cast, we’re totally excited to ‘rock the rafters’ once again with this happy and uplifting show. And honestly, Sister Act is exactly what we need right now!”
