Man of La Mancha i s one of the world's most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes' seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

wrongs in the world.

November 22 - December 8

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent, politically incorrect, and one of the funniest musicals ever written.  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.

Pigs Do Fly Productions is seeking four female actors over the age of 60 for their November 2019 production of The Lost Virginity Tour by Cricket Daniel. Directed by Deborah Kondelik.

The Lost Virginity Tour is a funny, profound, and provocative play about four women in their golden years - not talking about their grandkids or their knitting circles, but talking about sex and love, and recalling their 'first time' with often hilarious but sometimes harrowing detail.   This humorous and adventurous road trip conjures up the choices we make that shape our lives forever, and the friendships that hold us up when we can't walk on our own.

July 17th 

A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's most popular comedy, begins with the people of Athens entering a moonlit forest and falling under the spell of the fairies who inhabit it. These merry wanderers of the night make mischief as two boys fall in love with the same girl while friends are turned against each other. Artisans attempting to produce a play are transformed into beasts before their eyes, but the King and Queen of the fairies need to make peace before everything can be made well again. The final act is a memorable, hilarious play-within-a-play that captures the essence of the actor's nightmare and yet somehow has a magical appeal to the City's ruler in attendance.
