With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man’s journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.  —Musical Theatre International

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girl’s indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.  ⁠—Samuel French

“This production of Shakespeare’s comedy sets the play 12 years after World War II. In a world filled with music and magic, Prospera, a powerful sorceress, embarks on her journey to become whole again. Reality meets fantasy as the royal families of Naples and Milan are shipwrecked on a mystical island inhabited by fairies, spirits, and a fish monster. Prospera conjures up a storm that brings her face to face with those who exiled her 12 years earlier.

The amazing jazz music that accompanies the production symbolizes the free-flowing spirit of the characters onstage, as well as the struggle of Prospera’s inner psyche. Most of the leading roles reflect gender swaps which provide opportunities to female student actors and highlights women in roles of power. This play about family, forgiveness, and classism is told through the charm of both magic and comedy. It is a spectacle not to be missed.” —Royal Shakespeare Company

URINETOWN takes place in a time of desperation and desolation. A massive water shortage (caused by a twenty-year drought) means that private toilets have been outlawed and the public now have to pay “for the privilege to pee”. These public amenities, as they’re known, are run by the evil Urine Good Company (or UGC) headed up by the villainous Caldwell B. Cladwell. If citizens relieve themselves in public or refuse to pay the fee, they’re sent to the infamous Urinetown. —Musical Theatre International

“A sharp satire of the musical form…. Every line in the book and lyrics screams ‘comedy.'” —Boston Globe
