Get into the act…Sister Act, that is, with a heavenly, original score by 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast). Based on the 1992 film, this feel-good musical comedy will have you dancing in your pew to the powerful gospel music. During her nightclub act, Deloris Van Cartier hopes to meet a record producer—instead, she nearly meets her maker after witnessing a murder.

Make a habit of seeing this show more than once. (Suggested as PG)

Sometimes, out of tragedy, comes the most unexpected real-life comedy. After losing her husband to leukemia, Annie and her best friend, Chris, decide to raise money to buy a couch for the hospital waiting room.

However, the success of both the calendar and their bravery leads to strain in their friendship. Based on a true story, this is one of the most popular plays in British history. Love, tears, laughter, and unexpected joy are among the roller coaster of emotions the audience will experience in this endearing performance. (PG-13)
Oh, middle school! It’s that glorious period of adolescence when the awkward comedy of puberty reigns less than supreme. Is the stress of competing in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee worse than the pressure of being an imperfect tween? For the six less-than-confident final contestants, the reckless fate of word difficulty is probably not as hilarious as it is for the audience observing (and randomly participating in) the spelling bee. Putnam County’s colorful spectrum of parenting styles and personalities is as q-u-i-r-k-y “quirky” as ever! This Tony Award-winning musical will make you giggle, smile, and squirm with memories of your own juvenile melodramas. (PG13)

The boys take on some of the most powerful, ruthless men of the era. A musical filled with energizing anthems and glorious dance, the Tony Award-winning Newsies vividly tells a compelling, often comical, story of the human spirit. Newsies will undoubtedly capture your heart.
