Welcome to Priseaux, France, c.1250 A.D.: The river flooded again last week. Thechandler's shop just burned to the ground.  Nobody's heard of the wheelbarrow yet.  And Saint Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn't worked a miracle in thirteen years.  In other words, the Dark Ages atill look pretty dark.  All eyes turn to the Pope, whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the abbey to its former glory.  That is, until a rival church claims to possess the relics of Saint Foy --and their bones are working miracles.  All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstrel, who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts.

The Irish and How They got that Way

The Irish...and How They Got that Way is an uplifting musical celebration of all things Irish throughout the tumultuous 20th and 21st centuries through the eyes of Pulitzer Prize winning author, Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes, 'Tis, Teacher Man). McCourt's razor-sharp wit, coupled with his trademark bitter irony, and his boundless love for the Irish are all underscored by glorious music, including such immortals as "Danny Boy," "The Rose of Tralee," and "Harrigan," the works of George M. Cohan "Give My Regards to Broadway,""You're a Grand Old Flag, "and  "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy" to modern day Irish rockers U2.

Comedy Tonight!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a fast paced farce that promises to have audiences rolling on the floor.  Taken straight from the roots of comedy, Forum combines the ancient comedies of Plautus with a vaudevillian delivery.  Pseudolus schemes to win the heart of the beautiful virgin, Philia, for his young master, Hero.  In exchange, Hero will grant Pseudolus his freedom once and for all. However, things are never as easy as they seem. Chaos ensues with hair-brained schemes, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and convoluted plot twists.  One of the funniest musicals ever written, Forum promises: "Something for everyone: a comedy tonight!"
