Book and Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong, Book by Michael Mayer Music and Lyrics by Green Day
Based on the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album; Green Day’s two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical American Idiot boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. To find meaning in a post-9/11 world, three men flee their hometown for the thrills of city life in this energy-fueled rock opera (featuring a LIVE
BAND!). Johnny, Tunny and Will’s journey is quickly estranged by the armed forces, familial responsibilities back home, a seductive love interest and hazardous new friendship.
A Christmas Carol, the Musical
presented by Amica Insurance
November 9 – December 23, 2018
Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Book by Lynn Ahrens and Mike Ockrent Based on the story by Charles Dickens
A Christmas Carol, the Musical is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens’ most well-known story by Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island). Ebenezer Scrooge believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge is forced to face his selfish ways on Christmas Eve when three ghosts visit to lead him through his Past, Present and Future.

Written by Harvey Fierstein
Nestled in the Catskills—1962’s land of dirty dancing and Borscht Belt comedy—an inconspicuous bungalow colony catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men who delighted in dressing and acting as women. These white-collar professionals would discreetly escape their families to spend the weekends safely inhabiting their chosen female alter-egos. But given the opportunity to share their secret lives with the world, the members of this sorority had to decide whether the freedom gained by openness was worth the risk of personal ruin. Based on real events and infused with Fierstein’s (La Cage aux Folles, Newsies and Kinky Boots) trademark wit, this moving, insightful, and delightfully entertaining work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of “self-made women” as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.

Winner! Outer Critics Circle Best New Musical Award
It’s big-time New York! Into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, U.S.A. has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but Dick; a boy from home, a sailor and ambitious songwriter. By the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a passing by battleship. A campy, long running Off Broadway hit based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the ‘30s; this show brought stardom to Bernadette Peters and was selected as “Best Musical of the Year” by Time, Newsweek, and the Outer Critics Circle.

by Douglas Carter Beane Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture, Sister Act, written by Joseph Howard
Based on the 1992 hit film, Sister Act is a feel-good musical comedy smash that has audiences jumping to their feet! When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Featuring original music by Tony/Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
