Adapted from John Steinbeck's famous novel, Of Mice and Men follows the lives of George and Lennie, two drifters that dream of owning their own land. When their journey brings them to a ranch where they hope to earn enough money to finally buy their own property, trouble stirs and their plans must change. In this moment, George is forced to make a decision that challenges the core of human nature and morality. In this critically acclaimed drama, Steinbeck brings the trials of the Great Depression to the forefront, while providing an honest and heart wrenching depiction of these tragic characters. As a unique opportunity to see this iconic tale onstage, educational programs are encouraged to attend.
"Timely and devastatingly effective." - The New York Times
"Even if you already know how Of Mice and Men ends, you may be surprised
how much more powerful it is onstage." - Colorado Springs Independent

Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and inspiring the Academy Award-winning film, Driving Miss Daisy is a compassionate and humorous tale of an unlikely relationship between an aging Jewish woman and her soft-spoken black chauffeur. Set in the Deep South in 1948, we see their friendship develop over the course of thirty years through a series of compelling scenes. Through an era of great racial strife, their relationship grows and despite their differences, their mutual dependence draws them together. Driving Miss Daisy is an inspiring and moving tale that explores the depths of humanity and the process of growing older.
"Driving Miss Daisy is a total delight." - NY Daily News
"A perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme." - New York Post

Locked in a room for five days, three of Hollywood's greatest film collaborators rush to rewrite the screenplay for Gone with the Wind, which has halted production after three weeks. In this uproarious farce, David O. Selznick and Victor Fleming hilariously enact scenes from Margaret Mitchell's famous novel, while Ben Hecht works furiously to perfect the dialogue. An outrageous and intriguing peek into the back room of the Golden Age of Hollywood, audiences watch banana peels and peanut shells fly as these three race against the clock to produce one of the greatest films of all time.
"Frankly, my dear, this is one funny play. A rip-roaring farce [with] witty,
pointed dialogue and hilarious situations" - NY Daily News
"At once a hyperventilating slapstick comedy, an impassioned love song and a
blazing critique of Hollywood." - Chicago Sun Times

Woody Allen's vastly entertaining play that inspired the famous film of the same name, Play It Again, Sam follows the life of Allan Felix, a recent divorcé whose awkward interactions with women have forced him to rely on the advice of his hero, Humphrey Bogart. In this unique comedy, worlds collide as Allan attempts to navigate the unfamiliar territory of falling in love. An incredibly joyful play that echoes Casablanca, Play It Again, Sam captures the heart and follows Allan on his quirky, fantastic journey.
"Hilarious. A cheerful romp. Not only are Mr. Allen's jokes and their follow ups, asides and twists audaciously brilliant, but he has a great sense of character." - The New York Times
"A funny, likeable comedy that has a surprising amount of wistful appeal." - New York Post

Lights up on the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy cabaret in late 1920's Berlin. The Master of Ceremonies introduces us to a world where outside troubles do not matter and problems can be left at the door. Through the eyes of young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw; the nightclub singer, Sally Bowles; and the people of Berlin, this groundbreaking musical uniquely explores an era in which history is truly being made. In the 1998 revival version, this Tony Award-winning musical features notable musical numbers including, It Couldn't Please Me More, Willkommen, Cabaret, Don't Tell Mama and Two Ladies.
"A polished black diamond of a show, flashing with wild exuberance as
undertones of danger peep through." - The New York Times
"But it was the unexpected resonance of the story, set in tumultuous times more extreme than our own but by no means unrelatable, that made this revival seem so fresh and urgent." - LA Times
