A musical based on the stories of P. L. Travers and the Walt Disney Film
Original Music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Book by Julian Fellowes
One of the most popular movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon.
Always... Patsy Cline
Created and originally directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story
Licensed by the Family and Estate of Patsy Cline, All rights reserved.
Always... Patsy Cline is based on the true story of Patsy Cline's friendship with Houston, Texas housewife Louise Seger. Based on a true event, Patsy pays a surprise visit to Seger and, as they talk, Patsy floats in and out of Seger’s kitchen to reenact her great moments on the stage. And of course, she will sing – Anytime, Walkin’ After Midnight, She’s Got you, Sweet Dreams and the forever famous, Crazy. Theatre companies do not take on this work unless they have an outstanding actress to play Patsy. Erica McGee has been performing “Patsy” for years and is in constant demand. With our own Kim Krege Florio as Louise Seger, and a live band onstage, this play is will be a hit.
You will be led through great moments of laughter, warm sentiment and sadness. Who else but Patsy Cline would end up on the doorstep of her biggest fan for a cup of coffee? Always... Patsy Cline allows us to peek in on these sensational historical events, tapping feet to every treasured song.
The Pajama Game
Book by George Abbott and Richard Bissell
Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross
A union strike at a pajama factory generates plenty of steam heat in this toe-tapping comedic love story. Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
