Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness”, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

Honk! is a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Ugly Duckling, incorporating a message of tolerance. The book and lyrics are by Anthony Drewe and music is by George Stiles (of the British songwriting duo Stiles and Drewe). The musical is set in the countryside and features Ugly – a cygnet who is mistaken as an ugly duckling upon falling into his mother's nest and is rejected by everyone but Ida (his mother), a sly tomcat who only befriends him out of hunger, and several other barnyard characters.

For most people, the first things that come to mind when thinking of West Side Story are the dancing and the songs. First performed in 1957, West Side Story broke many of Broadway’s expectations and rules about what could be portrayed on the stage. There was a palpable shift from musical comedy to musical theater. Inspired by Romeo and Juliet, the new musical blurred the lines between opera and pop, and reflected on the stage, one of the gang and ethnic conflicts of its time. Unfortunately, we still live in a society that tends to fear difference. At the center of it all is the ability to highlight the views, hopes and fears of teens! Conceived by Jerome Robbins, West Side Story had more dancing than any other musical before it. Add to that, the considerable talents of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim on music and Arthur Laurents on script. Yet, those in power at the time said that it could never happen. It was too dark, too tragic, too timely, too hard. This is far from High School Musical! We look forward to sharing our version of West Side Story!
