This smash Off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In Act II, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!

The story chronicles the trials and tribulations of Newton Fuller who craves—and gets—"a little place in the country to call his own." Newton and his wife, Annabell, and their daughter, Madge, are hypnotized into taking over one of those windowless, waterless, almost roofless houses that dot the countryside. The ensuing troubles may be summed up by a search for water, a quarrel with a neighbor who owns not only the brook but the very road that leads from the highway to the house, the attempted elopement of the daughter with a summer-theatre actor, and the usual invasion of the weekend guests, including a prodigal uncle who is assumed to be rich but turns out to be just another bankrupt. It is discovered that the neighbor really doesn't own Newton's roadway, and that Newton's wife, who began by showing disgust over her husband's idiocy in wanting to live in the country, decides that he was right all along.

Norwalk’s revolutionary past comes to life in the revival of Mariner Pezza and Cheryl Kemeny’s historical drama! After serving in the Battle of Ridgefield, Nathan Benedict finds his hometown at odds with itself as the reality of war sinks in. Alliances are forged, romances are formed, and smuggled children are found as Thomas Paines’ pamphlet Common Sense galvanizes the patriot cause and alienates the “tories” with ties to Britain. Capturing the pathos, zeal, and fading pleasures of a rapidly evolving existence, this sweeping saga captures the spirit, drama, and diversity of colonial life during the American Revolution, complete with period-era melodies, powerful romantic ballads, and rousing anthems of a war-weary people.
