SHE LOVES ME
Book by Joe Masteroff, with music by Jerry Bock & lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
March 7-22, 2020 | From the creative team behind Fiddler on the Roof, this delightful musical tells the story of Georg and Amalia, bickering co-workers at a Budapest perfume store who have no idea that each is the other’s romantic pen pal. Based on a play that became both the Jimmy Stewart movie The Shop Around the Corner and the ‘90s classic You’ve Got Mail, She Loves Me is a charming romantic comedy about idealism and the promise of true love, guaranteed to lift your spirits and leave you grinning. Two-act musical appropriate for elementary school and up.

By Peter Shaffer
May 2-17, 2020 | Adapted into the 1984 Academy Award winning Best Picture, this celebrated play is a riveting exploration of jealousy, ambition, and madness. Antonio Salieri believes that his success as a composer in the royal court is the result of divine favor… until he encounters Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a profane man whose sublime talent makes Salieri’s own gifts pale in comparison. Determined to elevate his own stature, and convinced the creator is mocking him, Salieri plots revenge. Two-act play with mature content and recorded music, appropriate for teens and up.

DRIVING MISS DAISY
By Alfred Uhry
Set in Atlanta, 1948, this Pulitzer Prize winning play and Academy Award winner for Best Picture is the uplifting story of Daisy, a retired Jewish schoolteacher, and her African-American chauffeur, Hoke. As different as they first seem, their time together reveals a deep affection for each other, born in part from their shared experiences as minorities in a post-war South that simmers with violence. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, the relationship between Daisy and Hoke is a testament to the life-altering power of friendship. One-act play appropriate for middle school and up.
A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER
Book & lyrics by Robert L. Freedman, music & lyrics by Steven Lutvak
December 7-22, 2019 | This Central Ohio premiere of the 2014 Tony Award- winner for best new musical is a riotous comedy about murder and ambition. When Monty Navarro discovers that he is ninth in line to be Earl of Highhurst, he sets about bumping off the eight members of the D’Ysquith family who stand in his way– all of whom are played by a single actor! Making things stickier are the affections of two dramatically different ladies, the conniving Sibella and the earnest Phoebe. Two-act musical with some mature content, appropriate for teens and up.
