Emotions ignite when a handsome drifter arrives in a small Kansas community on the morning of their Labor Day picnic. Set in a small town in 1950s Kansas, Picnic details the lives of "ordinary" Americans, from hopeful widows and embittered spinsters to idealistic teenagers and restless wanderers.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbert
composed by Stephen Sondheim
July 10 - 26, 2015
Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent, and one of the funniest musicals ever written. It takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from the time-tested 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. This unforgettable, hysterical musical has "something for everyone - a comedy tonight!"
