You're a Good Man Charlie Brown
Book By Clark Gesner
Lyrics By Clark Gesner
Presented by special arrangement with Tams-Wittmark Music Library, Inc.
Directed by: Valerie Chamness Chin
September-7 - September-23, 2017
This revised edition is a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic. Sally Brown joins Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, and Snoopy in this version, featuring two new songs. This show picks up the action in "an average day in the life of Charlie Brown." It really is just that, a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine's Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

Dandelion Wine
By Ray Bradbury
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing
Directed by: Brandon Lyles
November-2 - November-18, 2017
Set in the "down home" locale of Green Town, Illinois, Dandelion Wine is a moving play in which 38-year-old Doug Spaulding must uncork the most wrenching summer of his childhood in order to free himself of the loneliness that has been bottled up in his heart for the last 23 years. He does this by going back in time to June 1928, arriving as Mr. Forrester, a stranger to Green Town. He befriends Douglas, his bright-eyed teenage self, and together they relive those days of time machines, the "wonderful Para Litefoot tennis sneakers," and his grandfather's cellar full of dandelion wine. By doing this, Spaulding hopes he can rediscover what will once again put "music in his ears and magic in his eyes."

February-1 - February-17, 2018
Based on the novel, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn...or else his uncle's gun-toting ex! Featuring a tuneful Flaherty and Ahrens score and an ensemble cast of zany characters, Lucky Stiff is an audience charmer.
