Show Synopses


By: Seth Rudetsky & Jack Plotnick

Directed by: Beth Clark

Assistant Directed by: Gary Kapp

Music Direction by: Mary Lynn Luke


Set on a floating casino, Disaster! is a jukebox musical where a group of eccentric and star-crossed characters’ fates become intwined amidst a series of earthquakes, tidal waves, and infernos. Playing homage to the era’s classic disaster films and featuring such unforgettable songs of the ‘70s: “Knock on Wood,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “I Am Woman,” and “Hot Stuff,” this hilarious comedy will knock you off your feet.


The Red Velvet Cake War

Written by: Jones, Hope, and Wooten

Directed by: Gina Hay Bryan


WIn this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins — Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette — could not have picked a worse time for their family reunion. Because of their antics in the small town of Sweetgum, including Gaynelle’s “accidentally” driving her minivan through the bedroom wall of her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide, the eyes of Texas are on them. Things spin out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a one-eyed suitor shows up to declare his love, and a jaw-dropping high-stakes wager is made on who bakes the best red velvet cake.

As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

Lend Me A Tenor

Written by: Ken Ludwig

Directed by: Dave Di Pietro

When a world-famous tenor scheduled for one night at a Cleveland Opera company is through a series of crazy mishaps unable to perform, a star-stuck assistant is frantically recruited to salvage the evening in his place. Soon the company manager has two opera singers in identical costumes running around with two infatuated women in hot pursuit. Like a fast-paced, Marx Brothers-type screwball comedy, this show is guaranteed to have you shouting Bravo with laughter.

The Odd Couple (Female Version)
Written By: Neil Simon
Directed by: Sylvia Veith


In Neil Simon’s revision of his own play, the lead characters are now Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Into Olive’s messy apartment Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Soon the messy and unconcerned Olive is sharing her untidy place with the obsessively clean and hygiene-obsessed Florence. Olive’s easy-going outlook soon clashes with Florence’s high-strung neuroticism, testing their friendship to the limit. And when Olive organizes a double-date, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.
