Something’s Afoot is a zany and satirical jab at the Agatha Christie-style “whodunnit” told in musical form. Ten guests at a forboding British manor are being killed one by one in mysterious (and hilarious) ways. It’s up to the remaining guests to figure out who the murderer is and stop them before it’s too late. This musical is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats and dying to know what will happen next.

“IN PIECES: A New Musical” by Joey Contreras reflects on the romantic journeys of eight individuals, as they share, ponder and look back on their chosen paths and partners along the way. Set in New York City. The scary excitement of being vulnerable and saying yes to whatever adventure is ahead. The magical first kiss. An unlikely friendship. Well-kept secrets. The monotony. The rebound. An awkward reunion. All these pieces come together to create a universal remembrance of what it’s like to be young and learning in love. Regional Premiere.

Nunsense is a hilarious musical farce featuring the talents of five ambitious nuns giving the performance of a lifetime. When tragedy strikes the Little Sisters of Hoboken leaving most of the order dead, these sisters uncover their show business dreams in hopes to raise enough money to bury the four nuns currently stored in the convent freezer. This show-stopping musical revue is filled with song and dance, laughter, and characters so quirky they’re almost heavenly.

The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best-loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.
