Seussical Jr. OVERVIEW:  Book by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty, Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens.  Co-conceived by Eric Idle.  Based on the works of Dr. Seuss.

Everybody’s favorite mischievous cat in a red and white top hat involves a little boy in a decidedly musical version of the all-time-favorite Dr. Seuss story, Horton Hears a Who, Spoiler: the Sour Kangaroo fails to triumph over Horton’s generosity, patience, and conscientiousness.


9 to 5 OVERVIEW: Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton, Book by Patricia Resnick.  Based on the Twentieth Century Fox film.

Let your fantasies of office rebellion run wild, chuckle, and hum along as the abused women in the office kidnap their heartless boss, Mr. Hart.  They take over the business and transform both its treatment of workers and its everyday ways of doing business.


Mary Poppins OVERVIEW: Original Music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.  Book by Julian Fellowes, New Songs and Additional Music and Lyrics by Anthony Drewe George Stiles. Co-Created by Cameron Mackintosh, A Musical based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney Film.

Bring the entire family to enjoy watching everyone’s favorite nanny save the children from their straight-laced father’s ultra-Victorian standards and ultimately (spoiler alert) save himself from himself.  Hum along to your favorites including “Chim Chim Cheree,” “A Spoon Full of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds,” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.”  This is rollicking, musical fun.
