Is there anything more fulfilling than finally getting your house truly, deeply clean? We may never know because The Clean House is a side-splitting comedy about a cleaning lady who’d rather perfect her stand-up routine than clean the house. As she spends her days not cleaning, she befriends her boss’s sister—who lives only to clean. Toss in a love triangle and some sibling rivalries and you get a whimsical and moving portrait of humanity, reminding us that the messes and disappointments of life can be the most unexpectedly fulfilling times of all.

Performances: July 20, 21, 27, 28 at 7:30 pm; July 22, 29 at 2:00 pm

Sondheim's semi-autobiographical musical turns back the clock on friendship and the high price of success. Beginning in the present and moving backwards, Merrily We Roll Along traces the lives of wealthy, jaded composer, Franklin Shepard, and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). With a brilliant "Broadway-style" score and that deep insight one expects from any Sondheim endeavor, it's a spirited and moving cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.

Recommended for ages 13 and up due to mature themes.

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser

Frank Loesser’s brassy and immortal musical comedy about rolling the dice and falling in love under the bright lights of Broadway involves the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, and a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but.

Guys & Dolls takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrate the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.”

Thomas is a playwright-slash-director, desperately in need of an actress. A young-ish actress. A beautiful-slash-sexy actress. A sexy-slash-articulate young actress with some classical training and a particle of brain in her skull. Enter Vanda. The resulting action is more complex, and more important, than any audition.

Venus in Fur, by David Ives, is a play that has only grown more relevant since its debut in 2010 – a provocative exploration of gender roles and the intricate dynamic of artistic collaboration. The question is: can Vanda trust Thomas to open up his eyes, and see the woman standing next to him?

Contains very strong language and sensual content. Suitable for people aged over 16.

When Helena saves the life of the King of France, he grants her permission to marry whomever she chooses, and she chooses Bertram. Unfortunately, Bertram thinks Helena is beneath him, and abruptly leaves her. What follows is a “problem play,” a story of forgiveness, grace, and learning to have humility as we mature which is as messy and beautiful as a life well lived.

One of Gilbert and Sullivan’s best loved works, The Pirates of Penzance is a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers and an eccentric Major-General. Set against the stark coast of Cornwall, England our story follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel. Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major-General Stanley’s songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of “The very model of a modern Major-General.”

Produced for the first time ever on the S&C stage, Wilde’s witty, satirical lark through parlors and gardens of Victorian England highlights the wonderful understatement, “The truth is rarely pure and never simple.” Two bachelors, Jack and Algernon, create alter egos named Ernest in order to escape their tedious London obligations. The two men woo two charming ingénues, who both fall madly in love – each woman with her own Ernest. The story is complete with the ritual of Afternoon Tea, and of course, the impressive and inimitable Lady Bracknell, who is the unforgettable and domineering voice of Victorian propriety. Through a number of silly twists and turns, status is achieved, true love and even truer identities are revealed, and we all learn the “vital Importance of Being Earnest.”
