This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.

"Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life is a classic that'll never to be surpassed by any remake. But what this play has to sacrifice, it makes up for with its original twist, its clever use of props, entertaining voices and a love story that you want to witness over and over again."
         Teresa Errico, Fairfield County Weekly          (Connecticut)

"A well-loved tale told with style, charm and a heart so big it could burst the ribcage of the harshest Grinch."
         Kerry Reid, The Chicago Tribune



February 29 – March 3, 2024

From the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime), comes this Olivier Award-winning musical. This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, "The Little Mermaid," garnered eight Tony nominations for its Broadway run, including Best Musical, Book and Score.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.

Inspired by the 1950s McCarthy hearings, this lively courtroom drama reimagines the events of the Scopes Monkey Trial, where a Tennessee teacher was tried for teaching the theory of evolution. Two persuasive attorneys argue the case in an effort to determine the balance between conformity of belief and freedom of thought. One of the most outstanding dramas of our time.

“The portrait it draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, remains as fresh as it ever was. One of the most stirring plays in recent years retains its folk flavor and spiritual awareness...Bursting with vitality…Literature of the stage!” —The New York Times.
