“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus, begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bay guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek. A wonderful fun experience for adults and children alike.

A thrilling and touching musical revue. In only 24 songs, Starting Here, Starting Now offers a tender-tough inventory of love and the lonesome lack thereof. The wry lyrics of Richard Maltby, Jr., combined with David Shire’s buoyant music, forge a fast-moving, ingratiating look at how love can go right, wrong or nowhere. Each song is an impeccably crafted story – original, engaging, bursting with character and showcasing the versatility and charisma of its performers.

By the author of Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine, this musical is a rags to riches tragedy of our times. A woman with numerous children to support surrenders one of her new born twins. The boys grow up never learning the truth but becoming firm friends and falling in love with the same girl. One prospers, while one falls on hard times. A narrator warns that a price has to be paid for separating twins: the lives of the blood brothers. Haunting music, thought-provoking lyrics and unforgettable characters will stay with you.

Guys and Dolls

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough and Sky ends up chasing the strait-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls has been hailed as the perfect musical comedy.

Described by Edward Albee as “…the greatest American play ever written,” the story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners in three parts: “Daily Life”, “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity”. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and set, audiences laugh and cry as they follow the Webb and Gibbs families growing up, falling in love and sharing each other’s pain.

A celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy featuring four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church. From the elderly matriarch to the young bride-to-be, we see them stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes and keep the Pastor on course while enjoying (and tolerating) each other as the true “steel magnolias” of the church.

Get your deerstalker cap on – the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Hound of the Baskervilles” into a murderously funny adventure. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. Watch as Holmes and Watson try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Can our heroes discover the truth in time?
