A FEW GOOD MEN
By Aaron Sorkin
September 13 – October 7, 2018
This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.
Ed Cohen, Director
THE WIZARD OF OZ
By L. Frank Baum
October 25 – November 18, 2018
With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg; Background Music by Herbert Stothart Dance and Vocal Arrangements by Peter Howard; Orchestration by Larry Wilcox; Adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Based on the 1939 movie with Judy Garland.
Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life. So when witchy old Miss Gulch threatens to impound Dorothy’s dog Toto, Dorothy runs away with her pet, only to be whisked away to the Land of OZ in a terrifying cyclone. Looking for her way back home, she and her new friends sing some of the most iconic songs ever, including “If I Only Had a Brain/Heart/Nerve”, “Munchkin Land”, “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” and the classic “Over the Rainbow”.
Bob Brunner, Director; Ron Attreau, Music Director; Jeni Bayer Schwiers, Choreographer
NEXT TO NORMAL
Music by Tom Kitt; Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
October 4 – 21, 2018
NEXT TO NORMAL, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was named “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.
Dad’s an architect; Mom packs lunches and pours cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens in a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal; mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, with deep love and sympathy. An emotional powerhouse encompassing grieving a loss, bewildering psychiatry and modern life.
Matthew Wilson, Director/Choreographer; Brian Hoffman, Music Director
