Final Weekend!
October 12 - November 4

Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that their small town isn't big enough for both of them. They agree on a settlement - the first one to extract $50,000 from their mutual target, young heiress Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town.
 
Sophisticated, suave, and with a good dash of mischief, this thoroughly entertaining musical features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for eleven Tony Awards.

The Addams Family  features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.

Nominated for six Tony Awards, and winning 2, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee features an eclectic group of sixth graders who arrive at a fictional spelling bee set in the geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School to vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter - one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box!

The popular entertainer, whose one-man-show  A Jew Grows In Brooklyn  has been a perennial hit with South Florida audiences, will be joined by  Grammy Award-winner / Oscar nominee Roger Kellaway in a brand new show that features the many great Christmas songs written by Jewish composers.  

Featuring behind the scenes stories and rare video appearances by Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof), Charles Strauss (Annie, Bye Bye Birdie), and Alan and Marilyn Bergman ("The Way We Were", "You Don't Bring Me Flowers") among others, Ehrenreich and Kellaway will be accompanied by a world class jazz quartet.

Old Jews Telling Jokes showcases five actors in a comedy that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.  It celebrates the rich tradition of Jewish humor "and all the rabbis, complaining wives, fed-up husbands, patience-challenged physicians, gossiping ladies and competitive men" populating it. The humor can be suggestive (sometimes even raunchy) as the 'Old Jews' make fun of themselves as well as followers of every other religion.
