A 2005 Drama Desk Award winner for Outstanding New Play, John Patrick Shanley's Sailor's Song, is a romantic seaside story infused with dance. Rich comes home after being at sea to help his uncle care for his dying aunt. He ventures into a local bar looking for something fun and distracting. While there he meets two sisters and eventually becomes infatuated with them both. Poignant and reflective, this dark comedy delves into the idea of destiny and the power of love.

An award winning script by a Canadian playwright that begins in San Diego during the Gold Rush of 1870 and centers on a misguided journey to the Great White North. A drunken minister who has lost his faith, a greedy saloon owner looking for a payday, a pregnant ingénue, and a Canadian gold miner (who at one point claims to be the last of the Mohicans) are featured in this wacky comedy. The four form a bedraggled troupe of desperate players who head north to perform in British Columbia. Cariboo Magi is a refreshing take on the Christmas story and will have the audience rolling with laughter.
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
By Stephen Flaherty, Lynn Ahrens, and Eric Idle

The Cat in the Hat narrates this musical story of the life of Horton the Elephant. Woven throughout the tale are all of your favorite Seuss characters as they help (or hinder) Horton on his journey to save the Whos. Along the way Horton cares for an abandoned egg and meets someone whose "thinks" are just as big as his own. Anything is possible as classic Seuss rhymes and locations are set to music by Stephen Flaherty, Lynn Ahrens, and Eric Idle. Something for theatre goers of all ages; the insight, humor, and imagination of Seuss come to life through story and song featuring his colorful characters.
