Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and
classically comic play.

"The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium." - The New York Times"

As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever." - The New York Magazine

This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing such classic ’50s and ’60s songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party,” and over 20 other classic hits! You’ve never had this much fun at a prom and you will never forget The Marvelous Wonderettes!

“One irresistible musical! An utter charm bomb!” –The New York Times

The summer of 1953 brings romantic entanglements; Burt Hines, mid-50's and convalescing from a second heart attack, eagerly anticipates the arrival of the ex-wife he still loves. Daughter Josie has just broken her engagement to a Harvard law student and pines for his buddy Ray, an aspiring writer with whom she once had a brief fling. Clemma, the black housekeeper at the center of the action casts a astute eye on the complications while facing with her own unresolved past.

"New directions from the dazzlingly successful playwright who changed the very face of comedy on Broadway." -
The New York Times

"As long as Neil Simon keeps turning out such sadly endangered species as the Broadway comedy and the well made play will never give up the ghost...extremely entertaining...a play of great warmth and charm. Simon plays his characters as if he were playing poker and winning and we sit back and enjoy."-New York Post



Jesus
                                        Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar 

by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice

PG

Performances:
March 19, 20, 21, 27, 28, April 3, 4, 2015 @ 8pm
  March 22 & 29 @ 2:30pm - Sunday Matinee


This 1970’s rock opera brings you the last week of Jesus’s life, loosely based on the Gospels. Written by the powerhouse team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story as Christ’s radical teachings are evermore embraced and Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. It has an emotional intensity and a thought-provoking edge. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, Jesus Christ Superstar illumi-nates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

Jesus Christ Superstar was first produced by OCT in the 1980-1981 season.

Red, White and Tuna

Performances: May 7, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 2015 @ 8pm
  May 10, 17, 24 @ 2:30pm - Sunday Matinee

The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas' third smallest town.

Along with Tuna's perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies
.
It's been several years since we left Bertha and Arles dancing at the end of A Tuna Christmas...Did the romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any "cosmic" communications from R.R.'s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be asked and answered in the side-splitting spoof of life in rural America.
