Show Details

Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious melding of iconic Swedish pop group, ABBA, with the enchanting tale of family and friendship on a Greek island paradise. On the eve
of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they had last visited 20 years ago. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus's songs including "Dancing Queen," "The Winner Takes It All," "Money, Money, Money," and "Take a Chance on Me" are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.

From The Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story

What did Banner Elk, North Carolina, look like in the 1890s? With the vision of a young seminary student, one tiny town gained a church, a college, an orphanage, and a hospital.” 

The story of Edgar Tufts is compelling and heartwarming. Set to music by John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks, and written by Janet Barton Speer (the team who brought you The Denim King: The Moses Cone Story), this work is presented after thoughtful research among the families who have lived here for generations. Using traditional mountain music mixed with a lyrical style, audiences will be moved and inspired by this great man. You will not want to miss From the Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story.


Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right! Set in New York City in 1899, Newsies with extraordinary dancing, acting, and music will appeal to musical lovers everywhere.
