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.

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.

Gilbert and Sullivan are on a steamer bound for the New York opening of their new hit – a roaring farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, and hopeful young lovers. Unfortunately, they’ve left the score in London! They scramble to recreate the show with only the clothes in their trunks and ship mates for a cast. All the music you love in this hilarious steampunk operetta at sea. Gilbert and Sullivan's comedy-musical gets a fresh twist in this new production conceived and directed by Doug Scholz-Carlson.

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!”
