Spring 2018 | Over the Tavern

Over the TavernIn that idealized period of the 1950s, the youngest member of the Pazinski family starts to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. When he goes up against the ruler-wielding Nun and announces that instead of being con-firmed he'd rather shop around for a more "fun" religion, all hell breaks loose. A warm and hilarious look at family, growing up, and God.

Directed by Shezwae Powell Performance dates are: April 19 - 22

Fall 2018 | Parade

ParadeWinner of 2 Tony Awards – Best Musical Score and Book.
Parade is an epic American musical about the true story of one of the most famous trials in American history.  Set in Atlanta in 1913, Parade tells the story of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager ostracized for his faith and Northern heritage. When he is accused of murdering a teenaged factory girl the day of the annual Confederate Memorial Day parade, the city of Atlanta races to justice, and in the process convicts a man who is, most likely, totally innocent.  With brilliant music and lyrics by composer Jason Robert Brown, this unique musical combines pop-rock, folk, R/B and gospel.  It is a riveting murder mystery, a gripping courtroom drama, a moving love story, and certainly one of the most powerful new musical theatre works of our time.
