The Pimpernel’s exploits soon become the talk of Paris, however, the fanatical Agent Chauvelin will stop at nothing to catch the Pimpernel and send him to the guillotine. With a rousing and passionate score by Frank Wildhorn, who also wrote the music for Jekyll & Hyde, THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL is a musical not to be missed! March 16 - April 30, 2023

No season is complete without a classic musical, and THE SOUND OF MUSIC is one of the best!  Set in Austria at the dawn of WWII, THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as a governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun. She soon finds herself falling in love with the children and their widowed father, Captain von Trapp. But when the Captain is ordered to take a commission in the German Navy, he must decide whether to accept or flee his beloved homeland.
