This timeless powerhouse of a play stands on its own merit, no matter what century it’s presented in. Expect a contemporary approach with gender changes and multimedia effects, all of which are designed to illustrate how relevant Shakespeare’s best works are to today’s audiences. Watch how, once again, the aphrodisiac of power corrupts even the most earnest of men and hear that famous line “Et tu, Brute?” as Caesar falls. Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears… You won’t want to miss this show.

This show is a throwback to 1920’s New York City when big bands, popular song writing radio shows and creating catchy tunes were all the rage. Set in Tin Pan Alley, June Moon features a wet-behind-the-ears young songwriter named Fred Stevens who sets off by train from Schenectady to NYC to make a name for himself in the world of song writing. Trouble begins when he and his composer partner, Paul, sell a song to a music publisher that becomes a hit. Between the lines Fred finds out who his real friends are and who he truly loves. This is a sweet, romantic drama with lots of music and laughs to counteract the betrayals. Treat yourself and your significant other to an early Valentine’s present by coming to see this little gem of a show.

This adaptation of the classic fairy tale is a wildly irreverent treat that will delight children and grown-ups alike. It focuses on Goody, the fairy who puts the famous curse on Beauty and spends the rest of the play trying to make everything turn out all right. Yes, there is a princess who pricks her finger and falls into a magic sleep, but there is also a vicious ogre mother-in-law, and ungrateful queen, and, in the center of it all, a grumpy fairy whose magic comes with stinky gas.
