THE WIZ

A beloved Broadway gem, The Wiz infuses L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with a dazzling mix of rock, gospel, and soul music. This timeless tale of Dorothy’s adventures through the Land of Oz is a fun, family-positive, modern musical.

THE ODD COUPLE

By Neil Simon
Winner! 1965 Tony Award, Best Author of a Play
Nominee! 1965 Tony Award, Best Play

This classic comedy opens as a group of guys assemble for cards in the apartment of the divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is the fastidious and excessively tense Felix Unger, who has just separated from his wife. The clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

AN ILIAD

By Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare

An Iliad is a modern-day retelling of Homer’s classic. Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller — possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in Homer’s footsteps. She is fated to tell this story throughout history.

GODSPELL

By Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak
Nominee! 1975 Tony Award, Best Original Score

Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew. The first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), Godspell took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, Day by Day, Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord, Learn Your Lessons Well, All for the Best, All Good Gifts, Turn Back, O Man, and By My Side.

DRAGON PACK SNACK ATTACK – THE MUSICAL
