The 2015-2016 Season

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Show dates: October 17-25, 2015

Stephen Sondheim's joyous, musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and exposes the secrets behind every toga.

Kindertransport

Show dates: November 8-10, 2015

At the beginning of the Holocaust the Kindertransport (German for "children's transport") was an organized rescue effort that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the war. The play examines the life, during World War II and afterwards, of a Kindertransport child. The play consists of the journey of a girl in the Kindertransport named Eva, later Evelyn.

The story is not told chronologically, and is often interrupted with flashbacks.
This production is free and open to the public and being staged in partnership with the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Central Florida. 

The Wonderful Wizard of Song: An Evening with Harold Arlen

Show dates: December 17-20, 2015

With an amazing catalog of songs that includes "Over the Rainbow," "Stormy Weather," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "I've Got the World on a String," "Get Happy" "Blues in the Night" and "Come Rain or Come Shine," it seems a criminal oversight that Harold Arlen's name doesn't resonate with the public the way Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George & Ira Gershwin's do. Only 3 performances.

The Fabulous Lipitones

Show dates: April 2-10, 2016

When one of their founding members drops dead mid-performance, this small town America barbershop trio must race to find a new member for their quartet to win the national competition. 

 

Help us renovate our theater.

We have a beautiful Harriett & Hymen Lake Cultural Center Auditorium that was last renovated in 2003. Now we just need to make a few upgrades to take our theater to the next level!
