March 30 - May 6

Award-winning Director/Choreographer Kevin Black, whose creativity seems to know no bounds, has created a brand-new show featuring the  Time Step , along with other forms of dance including Irish Celtic, Flamenco, Stomp, and Clogging.   The production will also feature numbers from the classic Broadway tap shows  42nd Street and  Crazy For You , as well as tributes to Big Band Jazz performers such as The Nicholas Brothers, Swing Music, and Sing, Sing, Sing.

The origins of the Time Step - that unmistakable rhythmic tap combination - can be traced back to the Vaudeville era in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Dancers would repeat a 'time step', usually for six measures of music, and then perform two measures of improvised steps choreographed in the moment to set the pace of the music. A true mix of European Jig, Reel Steps, Clog, and African Rhythms, often spontaneously combined, this improvisation created an exciting new dance style.

It's 1927. Playboy Jimmy Winter is celebrating yet another marriage. Three thugs are trying to figure out where to hide 400 cases of gin and their beautiful bootlegger boss Billie Bendix is looking for a place to stash the hooch and hide out from the Prohibitionists. Add some chorus girls, a Vice Squad, and of course a romance or two to the mix; season this soufflé with the glorious music of George and Ira Gershwin, and voila! Nice Work If You Can Get It, the riotous multiple Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning musical comedy takes all these ingredients and creates the epitome of a 1920's screwball comedy perfect for 21st Century audiences.

Sex in the City... on the Links!
March 22 - April 8

It's the day after the funeral, and three women gather for a round of golf in honor of their recently departed play partner.  A mysterious fourth joins them, and so begins a raucous and rowdy 18 holes filled with secrets, surprises, confessions... and sex.   The fun starts at the first tee when golfer Tate starts stretching to "loosen up" and Margot does the same by cracking open a beer!

A wickedly inspired musical re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend, Mel Brooks' comedy masterpiece follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen!) as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and bring a corpse to life. Together with his oddly shaped and endearing helper Igor (that's Eye-gor), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and in spite of his incredibly self-involved madcap fiancé Elizabeth, Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster - but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.

Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.

When a woman is critically injured in an accident, can the same man who almost took her life safe her?  There are encounters in life that take you somewhere you've never been and never meant to go.  With violent precision, savage imagery, and theatrical vitality, Lydia Stryk writes an extraordinary  play about recovery.  An Accident is both a visceral playground and an emotional minefield. 
(Contains adult situations - not appropriate for children).
