Presented through special arrangement with Stage Rights, www.stagerights.com
Take a trip back to the 1958 Springfield High school prom where we meet The Marvelous Wonderettes, four girls with voices as big as their bouffants and personalities as kooky as their crinoline skirts! From prom night to their ten-year reunion the girls perform such classic hits as “It’s My Party,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Leader of the Pack,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “You Don’t Own Me,” “Respect,” and many more!

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, New York, NY
Experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age with all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline. “Talkies” are replacing silent movies and things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen.

Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, this show is guaranteed to make a big splash! And yes, it really will rain onstage!

|DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER
By Marc Camoletti, Robin Hawdon
Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. New York, NY
Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own…setting the stage for a collision course of assumed identities and outrageous infidelities. The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time in this hilarious romp through the French countryside.

|A CHRISTMAS STORY
Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
Bespectacled Ralphie Parker schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle (You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”) An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Based on the perennial holiday move favorite, this show will absolutely put you “in the spirit!”
