The upcoming Main Stage season begins this fall with All Shook Up, a 2004 American jukebox musical with music from the Elvis Presley songbook and with a book by Joe DiPietro. Next is Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic, a 2015 original play by New York-based playwright Matt Cox. The play is a comedic retelling of the Harry Potter book series by J. K. Rowling, but from the perspective of the “Puffs”. In February 2023 comes The Waverly Gallery, a play by Kenneth Lonergan. It is considered a “memory play”. The show, first produced Off-Broadway in 2000, follows a grandson watching his grandmother slowly die from Alzheimer’s disease, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2001. The last show of the season is The Jungle Fun Room, by Brian Hampton. It centers around a group of struggling actors who spend their days working children’s birthday parties at the New York City Zoo.
In January 2022 we held our first “No Way Cabaret” as part of our Stage Door Productions. It is a chance for people to perform a song from a role that they will never get to play. Because it was so popular…..WE ARE BRINGING IT BACK!
Our next “No Way Cabaret” will be all Disney! Come audition on May 25th at 7pm and sing your heart out to a Disney song from a part you could never play. The performance will be July 16th.
