The Shows

Fiddler on the Roof: Jan. 3-5

A fresh take on a beloved masterpiece. Fiddler on the Roof begins a North American tour directly from Broadway telling this heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives and the timeless traditions that define faith and family.

Bandstand: April 3-5

They came home to a new America. They made the music that inspired the nation. From three-time Tony winner and Hamilton choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, six soldiers return from war and, through the power of music, finally find a place to call home.

Stomp:  Feb. 21-22

Explosive, provocative, sophisticated and utterly unique, Stomp appeals to audiences of all ages. The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises with some sections of the show updated and restructured. Two new full-scale routines utilize a variety of new props.

The Book of Mormon: June 2-7

This nine-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the good word. This play contains explicit language.

Hamilton: 2020-2021

Hamilton is a critically acclaimed and award-winning musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, Hamilton: An American Musical incorporates hip-hop, R&B, pop, soul and traditional-style show tunes.

Waitress: Nov. 7-9

Inspired by the beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town. A baking contest and the town's new doctor may offer her a fresh start, but Jenna must summon the strength to rebuild her own life. Don't miss this uplifting celebration of friendship, motherhood and the magic of a well-made pie. This play features original music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles and includes mature themes. Parental discretion advised.

A Christmas Story: Nov. 22-24

Bring the classic 1983 movie to hilarious life on stage! Set in 1940s Indiana, a young, bespectacled Ralphie Parker schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. The infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, maniacal department store Santa and triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish.

The Play That Goes Wrong: Jan. 31-Feb. 2

What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? You'd get The Play That Goes Wrong. This comedy and classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania. The members of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society are trying their best to stage a production of a 1920s murder mystery. As the show's title might suggest, it is not easy with everything that could go wrong doing exactly that.
