I'll Be Seeing You!
November 24 - December 16, 2017
By Reba Hervas and Megan Schier
In December of 1941 lives of American citizens were forever changed when Pearl Harbor was attacked. All Americans rallied together to show support and USO canteens sprang into action. The lives of radio stars, entertainers, soldiers and the girl next door intertwine in Chicago. As the pages on the calendar turn, the music of the 40’s brings home to the front and the holiday spirit to each heart.
Alive with high-octane dance numbers, and dreamy ballads this original musical is one you don’t want to miss.
On Golden Pond
February 9 - March 3, 2018
By Ernest Thompson
Summer has returned again to Golden Pond, and so has Norman Thayer, a retired professor, and his wife, Ethel, who are back for a 48th year at their idyllic summer cottage. In their golden years, the elderly couple provide a perfect contrast to each other: Though battling heart palpitations and a failing memory, Norman remains spirited and cantankerous while Ethel, 10 years his junior, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to color their long life together. As Norman approaches his 80th birthday, they are visited by their estranged daughter, Chelsea, and her fiancé, who go off to Europe and leave his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness in return. While their bond strengthens, intimations of mortality are in the air with a growing sense of urgency for Norman to make peace with his daughter. When she returns, Chelsea is married and her stepson has the relationship with her father that she always wanted. Will father and daughter be able to communicate at last?
The show runs approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.
