A Musical Comedy
Book by Michael Stewart
Music by Charles Strouse
Lyrics by Lee Adams

A campy musical send-up of the late 1950s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Inspired by the phenomenon of Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY A NEW MUSICAL
Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams
Oct 18-Nov 3
Welcome to kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, a family dealing with the same challenges faced by any other family: the Addams kids are growing up. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change.
2019 SECOND STAGE PRODUCTIONS

Director: Lora Ristau
He said, she said—but exactly what happened? Oleanna examines the power struggle between a university professor and one of his female students, who accuses him of sexual exploitation and, by doing so, spoils his chances of being awarded tenure.
WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Director: Jim Walker
This award-winning classic of the modern stage examines the complexities of marriage and betrayal. In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
U RANG DURANG?
TWO SHORT COMEDIES FROM ONE WRONG MIND
By Christopher Durang
Director: Jonathan Forrester
Two of Durang’s most popular one acts, “For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls” and “‘dentity Crisis,” combined together into one night of bizarre hilarity. These crackpot comedies both turn family upside down in a way that only Christopher Durang can.
