JANUARY 22 – FEBRUARY 27, 2022

A mother, a daughter, three possible Dads, and a trip down the aisle you are not likely to forget highlight the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs. The non-stop laughs, heart-warming characters and explosive dance numbers propel this enchanting tale of love, laughter, and friendship. MAMMA MIAwill prove to be the perfect antidote to the winter blues.


MARCH 19 – APRIL 24 , 2022

 BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s son, Will, has grown up with the incredible, larger-than-life stories from kissing a mermaid, to encountering a witch, to befriending a giant and meeting Will’s mother in a circus. But Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, BIG FISH is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theater—for an experience that’s richer, funnier, and bigger than life itself.


MAY 14 – JUNE 26 , 2022

Mrs. Peacock in the ballroom with the candlestick? Colonel Mustard in the study with the knife? Six guests are invited to a dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. CLUE is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!

What better way to celebrate the holidays than with the beloved classic WHITE CHRISTMAS? The successful song-and-dance act of army buddies Bob Wallace and Phil Davis follow a duo of singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. Filled with laughter, romance, spectacular dance numbers and the unforgettable songs of Irving Berlin, it’s clear to see why this is a holiday favorite for the whole family.
