Still to come this season
A Dramatic Comedy, based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed
Adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos
Directed by Rob Duval
Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar,” a struggling writer, was asked when she over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist. Strayed used empathy to help those with obstacles both large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.

A Musical Comedy
Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
The Tony Award-winning The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book, and a truly fresh and vibrant score, this bee is one unforgettable experience. In this musical comedy, an eclectic group of middle-school spellers compete at their annual spelling bee. 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. Through charming, funny, and poignant songs, we get to know each speller’s unique story and discover that winning isn’t everything.
A Musical by Paul Gordon (Music and Lyrics)
and John Caird (Book, Director)
Daddy Long Legs is based on the 1912 novel of the same name by Jean Webster. Set in turn-of-the-century New England, the musical tells the story of orphan Jerusha Abbott and her mysterious benefactor who agrees to send her to college, who she dubs "Daddy Long Legs" after seeing his elongated shadow. Under the conditions of her benefactor, Jerusha sends him a letter once a month, describing her new-found experiences with life outside the orphanage.
