CASSIDY 2013 SEASON
Music by Jule Styne, Lyrics by Bob Merrill
Her career spanned from comedienne to Vaudeville star. In The Ziegfield Follies, in Hollywood films and on the radio, Fanny Brice was one of the most celebrated entertainers of her time. This show is her story. Musical numbers include I’m the Greatest Star, I Want to Be Seen with You Tonight, Don’t Rain on My Parade, People, The Music Makes Me Dance, Who Are You Now? and You Are Woman, I Am Man. As talented as she was, she deserved to be loved by everyone, audience and husband alike.

By David Bottrell and Jessie Jones
In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Firstborn Ray-Bud drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount; Junior, the younger son, is juggling financial ruin, a pack of no-neck monster kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity in the family car; their spinster sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does with life, by devouring junk food; and all the neighbors add more than two cents. Amidst the chaos, the eccentric community of misfits just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
This show is the age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue, an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores. Terrific songs include It’s De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get a Kick Out of You, All Through the Night, Anything Goes, You’re the Top, Blow Gabriel Blow, Take Me Back to Manhattan and Let’s Misbehave. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYHING GOES!

By Agatha Christie
A group of strangers are stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, and one of those strangers is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons.

Music by Richard Rodgers
Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lyrics by Tim Rice
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
