‘Two thirds rhythm and one third soul.’ That’s how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as ‘swing.’ SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. This enthralling song-and-dance show makes it abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place — it has always been a state of mind!
Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater, Music by Duncan Sheik, Based on the play by Frank Wedekind
Germany, 1891: Adolescents, Wendla and Melchior, discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. SPRING AWAKENING is a high energy, rock musical that explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children. SPRING AWAKENING celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget. Rated R for language, mature themes, and brief nudity.
Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson, Story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey
An affectionate tribute to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s THE MUSIC MAN follows a fast-talking traveling salesman as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
