Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton
Book by Patricia Resnick

Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world. Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy - giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Southern Hospitality

April 10th- 26th  2015  
Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten
 
The Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye and Rhonda Lynn—are in trouble again. This time, the problem is bigger than ever: Their beloved hometown, Fayro, Texas, is in danger of disappearing, and it's up to the sisters to save it from extinction. Honey Raye and her former nemesis, Geneva Musgrave, have come up with a possible solution. Dilemas include characters making promises that are not to be believed, dragging an unwilling groom to the altar, financial problems including gambling away a mobile home, and going through a major midlife crisis. How the Futrelle sisters and the other citizens of Fayro, pull together and save their town is a testament to Southern strength and ingenuity—and a recipe for total hilarity.

The Producers

June 12th – 28th  2015  
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Based on the 1968 Film
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
 
A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The show follows the antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and the consequences of their actions. At the core of this insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.

Steel Magnolias

August 7th – 23rd  2015  
Written by Robert Harling
 
Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana is where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy in the second act. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Bonnie and Clyde (The Musical)

October 9th – 25th  2015  
Music by Frank Wildhorn
Lyrics by Don Black
Book by Ivan Menchell
 
At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America's most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers' thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. When they are forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo's fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer. Bonnie and Clyde is thrilling with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

November 20th – December 6th  2015  
Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Additional Material by Jay Reiss
 
Six awkward spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless charm and humor. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
