The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals!
In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five
delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different
master of the form, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim.
June is an ingenue who can't pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord.
Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue? The variations are:
a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a
dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured
artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not
appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle;
an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from
Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.
The Musical of Musicals: The Musical is produced through
special arrangement with Samuel French.
Directed by Dr. Conrad Davidson
So swift is the action, so involved the situations,
so rib tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences
are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race.
Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an
American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the air force in England),
a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who
"touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting
the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a
sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him.
See How They Run is produced through
special Arrangement with Sameul French.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy
MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT
retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table,
and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits,
and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?
Monty Python’s Spamalot is produced through special arrangement with
Theatrical Rights Worldwide.

Adapted from the Novel by Mark Twain
Directed by Kevin Neuharth
Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi
as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape
to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along
the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to
life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and
her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke,
who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner
in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken
father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her
trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from
Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides
a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
Big River The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn produced though
special arrangement with Rogers and Hammerstein.
