The 1950s are out, and change is in the air in this Tony Award-winning family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs! It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire — to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network … all without denting her ‘do!

A New Adaptation of Aristophanes’ Comedy
Adapted by J.A. Ball and Michael M. Chemers
 
Women striking for peace using the most powerful weapons in the feminine arsenal are at the core of Aristophanes’ ancient comedy. Toward the end of the Peloponnesian War, a group of soldiers’ wives led by Lysistrata join together in a strike against the men of Greece, denying them sex until they’ve agreed to put down their arms and end the disastrous wars between Athens and Sparta. However, Lysistrata’s strategy effectively creates even more war than before as a comedic battle of the sexes ensues!

Dramatized by Christopher Sergel
From the book by Harper Lee
 
It’s 1935, and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama. Nonetheless, young Scout manages to live a rather carefree, privileged existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when she watches her father, Atticus Finch, defend an innocent man, Tom Robinson, against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. With the the help of Atticus, and her older brother Jem, Scout learns that “growing up” often means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost, in Harper Lee’s American masterpiece.

By David Adjmi
 
How’s a queen to keep her head in the middle of a revolution? Marie Antoinette delights and inspires her French subjects with her three-foot tall wigs and extravagant haute couture. But times change and even the most fashionable queens go out of style. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite!” in the streets, David Adjmi’s humorous and haunting contemporary take on the doomed young queen of France holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Join the tribe of the Age of Aquarius and celebrate the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory! In the first rock musical to hit the Great White Way, a group of hippie youth search for meaning amidst the Civil Rights movement, protests against the Vietnam War, drug experimentation and the sexual revolution — all set to the infectiously energetic rock beat of such songs as “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let The Sun Shine.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, this groundbreaking 1968 tribal love rock musical remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
