Based on the 1988 children’s novel of the same name by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Matilda’s precocious nature, brilliant mind, and gift of telekinesis, help her overcome life’s obstacles. Only her gentle schoolteacher, Miss Honey, sees Matilda for the extraordinary little girl she is. Together they design a world where kindness, love, and the beauty of childhood are celebrated. High-energy music, dance, and Roald Dahl’s magic touch humorously illuminate the darkness in humanity and create a uniquely-delightful experience. Rated PG.

Missoula fell in love with the “Plaids” (Francis, Jinx, Smudge, and Sparky) in 1999 and again in 2007 because audiences couldn’t get enough of these lovable characters. The world could use some rich-as-eggnog nostalgia this year, so the guys are back to give YOU a gift this holiday. With their smooth-as-silk vocal harmonies, charming innocence and hilarious hi-jinx, the whole family will enjoy the “Plaid-erized” versions of beloved classics such as “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” “Joy to the World,” and the silly “Mambo in a Winter Wonderland.” Their appearance on the Ed Sullivan show is simply not to be missed as this show will bring much joy to your season. Rated PG.

Nominated for 10 Tony Awards in 2014, this uproarious musical comedy hit has us rooting for low-born Monty, who has discovered that he is, by birthright, a high-brow and eighth in line to be Earl of Highhurst. But there are 8 other pesky heirs (all played by 1 extraordinarily-versatile actor!) in his way to claim his wealth. Monty accidentally finds that murder is a convenient (and ironically hilarious) method to expedite his mission. Fast-paced, filled with outlandishly clever dialogue, and seemingly infinite plot twists, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is destined to be your new favorite show! Rated PG-13.

What do you do for a living? Is what you do who you are or what you dreamed you would be? For many of us, our job directly impacts our level of fulfillment and how we define ourselves. Nominated for 6 Tony Awards, Working is a musical celebration and examination of work in America based on the writings of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Studs Terkel. With stirring, poignant music by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), James Taylor, and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), it explores careers through the voices of the people who perform them including teachers, first responders and truckers with passion, comedy, regret, uncertainty, and pride. Whatever we do, we all need to contribute and have “Something to Point to.” Rated PG-13.
