April 22 – May 17, 2020 
Music by Alan Menken; Lyrics by Jack Feldman; Book by Harvey Fierstein
Based on the Disney film written boy Bob Tzudiker and Noni White.

Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!  Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsiesfeatures a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of HorrorsSister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message.



June 3 – June 28, 2020

Book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart; Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.  Based on the plays of Platus

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.



July 8 – Aug. 2, 2020
By Jerry Herman, Larry Alford and Wayne Cilento

Jerry Herman has put the 'larger-than-life' women of his shows centre stage. There's Dolly Gallagher Levi of Hello, Dolly!, Auntie Mame Dennis of Mame, Countess Aurelia of Dear World, Mabel Normand of Mack and Mabel. And female impersonator ZaZa of La Cage Aux Folles. So it is fitting that in Jerry's Girls there are women centre stage. Women affectionately celebrating Jerry's special gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of the American musical theatre.  The show's 'name-dropping' title song, Jerry's Girls (to the tune of It's Today from Mame), that opens Act One.  A celebratory two-hour musical entertainment of glamour, optimism, love, melody, and women.  







Aug. 19 – Sept. 13, 2020

Music by Richard Rodgers / Book by Oscar Hammerstein II / Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstien II / Based on the Play LILIOM by Ferenc Molnar / As adapted by Benjamin F. Glaser / Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

In a Maine costal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naïve millworker, Julie Jordan.  Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery.  Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent ‘up there’.  Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew.  She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father’s reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life.  How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love.
