THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD

December 5th - December 9th

More Information | Buy Tickets

This ultimate musical ‘whodunit’ is a madcap romp through an English music hall company’s version of Dickens’ great unfinished novel. A rollicking comedy of murder, intrigue, hidden identity, dangerous attraction, and the hunger every actor has to be at center stage, this rule-breaking show allows the audience to choose the story’s outcome at every performance!

December 6th - December 9th

Blackmail, scandal, and romantic intrigue threaten the domestic tranquility of an ambitious politician in Oscar Wilde’s 1895 social satire. A masterful blend of wit and high stakes drama, An Ideal Husband feels remarkably contemporary as it examines the corrupt sources of great wealth and the influence of money on political power.
