2019 Season Lineup
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner More04/26/2019 – 05/19/2019
By Todd Kreidler
Based on the screenplay Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, by William Rose
A progressive white couple’s proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family–especially in 1967. But they’re surprised to find they aren’t the only ones with concerns about the match, and it’s not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the Draytons’ idyllic San Francisco terrace.
I Love You, You’re Perfect Now Change More07/05/2019 – 08/04/2019
Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music by Jimmy Roberts
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as ‘the relationship.’ Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, ‘Say, what are you doing Saturday night?’ I Love You… has been regarded as a contemporary classic since it’s initial off-Broadway run, and is now funnier than ever in this newly revised edition for an explicitly technological age.
Cabaret More09/20/2019 – 10/27/2019
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by Joe Masteroff
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Mein Herr,” and “Two Ladies.”

The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical More11/22/2019 – 12/22/2019
Music and Lyrics by David Nehls
Book by Betsy Kelso
It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! This companion to the original Great American Trailer Park Musical is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time-—but with tinsel and Keg Nog.
