From the Oscar-winning composer team Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) & Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) comes a lushly scored retelling of Victor Hugo’s (author of Les Miserables) epic story of love, acceptance, and what it means to be a hero. THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME showcases the Disney film’s Academy Award-nominated score.

Julius Caesar

July 13 and 14, 2019

A charismatic war hero on the brink of kingship, Caesar is celebrated by the people of Rome — but mistrusted by some of his closest friends who fear his popularity will throw the country into chaos. The immersive, 90-minute production, will help bring this anachronistic tale of betrayal to life.

Arsenic and Old Lace

The comic mayhem of Arsenic and Old Lace, Joseph Kesseling’s most famous play, has made it a true classic. Much like Abby and Martha’s secret “arsenic” recipe, the combination of screwball comedy and gothic chills is a potent mix, sure to send a few delicious shivers up your spine – but don’t worry, we promise you won’t die laughing.

Everyone is familiar with the dark tale of Dr. Seward, his fiancée, Lucy, and their mysterious neighbor, Count Dracula, but here the events take on intensified effect through the heightened action and simplified staging of this fast-moving new version.
