The structure of the whole thing becomes apparent soon enough. We first meet Cindy Lou, Betty Jane, Missy and Suzy aka The Wonderettes at their 1958 Prom Night, performing a selection of girl-group classics in front of their fellow classmates. The girls have a leader because someone has to corral the egos. They have a rivalry because high school girls have been known to do that, and there’s a slightly tragic story of a girl who gets pregnant by a guy who is cheating on her already.  Thus the soundtrack covers the romantic highs (Sincerely;  It’s In His Kiss) and the bitter lows (It’s My Party; You Don’t Own Me). The quartet returns after intermission to pick up on their lives 10 years later, as reflected in the brightly colored miniskirts and go-go boots. An entertaining blast from the past, Wonderettes is everything that community theater should be: humorous, entertaining, and a chance to forget the real world for just a moment.

“It is the moment you’re frightened that life is real.”  The Addams Family is a story of a monster family whose lives are changed by a romance with a Midwesterner.  As expected, The Addams Family is based on the old Addams Family TV show and the 1990’s films. Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Fester, Lurch and the whole family, dead or undead, are back, including an older Wednesday Addams who believes she has fallen in love with a young man, Lucas, from Ohio.  In stark contrast to the Addams’ interesting lifestyle, Lucas and his family are the epitome of a middle class, mid-American family. This “creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky” production has fathomless energy and hundreds of laughs to tickle your funny bone— be it still attached to your body or buried out back in the family crypt. When you’re an Addams, you move toward the darkness, welcome the unknown and lose your inhibitions.  Come become an Addams for a couple of hours of fun. 

Book by MARSHALL BRICKMAN and RICK ELICE Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA. Based on characters created by Charles Addams. Produced by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide.

“When you got someone to love, you forget your cares and strife.” The story tells of a child who is sold by a London orphanage because he asks for more food. The boy eventually escapes to the streets of London, finding adventure and seeking a loving home. This story highlights the life of the downtrodden in all its glorious and raw aspects and has everything a good story needs — heroes, villains, and everyone in between. Oliver! is animated with high-spirited dance numbers and filled with unforgettable tunes, including “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two,” “Where Is Love?,” “Consider Yourself,” and “As Long As He Needs Me.”The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to also win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audiences alike. The endearing beauty of Oliver is it’s a show for young and old to enjoy.
