The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. This hilarious and touching Tony Award-winning musical takes audiences right into the pressure cooker of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Under the bee’s bright lights, six young overachievers must use their dictionary-thick knowledge of obscure words and the unexpected guidance of lovable bee officials to battle the oppression of role models, adults, other competitors and even their own selves to learn that winning isn’t everything and that champions come in all shapes and sizes.

It has been referred to as the greatest love story of all time, or perhaps the most tragic.  Romeo and Juliet is the story of two star-crossed lovers and the unhappy fate that befalls them due to the long and bitter feud between their families.  The play contains some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful and lyrical love poetry and is perhaps the finest celebration of the joys of young love ever written.

Three days before his bid for re-election, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican US senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on Twitter, calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God.  As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.

Middletown is a deeply moving and funny play exploring the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between.  Middletown is a delicate play about Anywhere, USA, and how human connection is essential for our survival.

Hyronomous A. Frog:  The Frog Prince

By Edith Weiss
Hyromonous A Frog Hyronomous A. Frog doesn’t quite fit in among the other frogs in    the bog.  He’s incredibly large compared to the others and hates the taste of flies!  When he meets Gloria the Good Witch, he learns he must be kissed by a maiden to break the curse that turned him from a prince into a frog.  Hyronomous sets off for Spamalot, where he finds the spoiled and petulant Princess Gladiola.  Gladiola and her painfully pompous fiancé, Sir Lancelot Pancelot, despise the frog and stop at nothing to get rid of him.  Meanwhile, our green hero tries desperately to fit in among the royal household. Luckily, Hyronomous finds a friend in Delphinium, the handmaiden, who does her best to save him from the slings and arrows of outrageous Gladiola and Sir Pancelot.  When it seems all is lost for our beloved frog, he finally gets his kiss, bringing about a ribbiting...  er, riveting...  heart-warming finale!

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly.  When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge.  In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
