“Get swept away to 1960’s Baltimore, where loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?  With one of the most upbeat and catchy scores of all time, including Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop The Beat, Mama I’m A Big Girl Now, It Takes Two, Welcome to the 60’s, I Can Hear The Bells and more.  Directed by Jan Shelton Hunsaker.  Music direction and choreography by Tiffany Winkel Nutter.”

“Long live Green Eggs & Ham! Making its Shell debut, Seussical is a family favorite featuring the mischievous Cat in the Hat and all your favorite Dr. Seuss characters as they collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and all the Whos of Whoville. These classic and colorful tales are brought together by JoJo, a little boy who is a “thinker of wonderful thinks!” The upbeat music from Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty transports you from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible Who world, so let your imagination run wild as this production is sure to be a spectacular of grand proportions. Directed and choreographed by Shawn M. Mortensen. Music direction by DeLayne Bluth Dayton.”

“Lads and lassies of all ages have fallen in love with Lerner & Loewe’s beloved Scottish musical, as two American tourists stumble upon the enchanted village of Brigadoon – a place that disappears into the Highland mist and returns for one day every 100 years. When Tommy falls in love with Fiona, a girl from the quaint town, he must make a choice between the life he has always known and the possibility of true love that transcends time. A romantic fantasy with songs including Waitin’ for My Dearie, I’ll Go Home with Bonnie Jean, Come to Me, Bend to Me, Almost Like Being in Love, There But for You Go I, and The Heather on the Hill, along with Scottish dancing, kilts and bagpipes, this classic show is pure magic under the stars!  Directed by Jerry Elison. Music direction by Dana Cardon”
