South Pacific June 17-18, 23-25 at 7:30 PM
June 26 at 2:00 PM

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.  Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile.  She learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on her own bias, refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage.  Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself love and the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.  A tragic event makes Nellie realize that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.  It’s a show truly ahead of its time.  $20 Adults / $10 Students / Season / Flex

July 24 at 2:00 PM

“A musical blast!  Fun for the whole nuclear family!” says the New York Daily News.
This musical romp set in the 1950s is exhilarating!  It’s sharp, spiffy, brighter, and better crafted than both “The Rocky Horror Show” and “Grease” put together!  Star-crossed lovers are separated by society and a tyrannical school principal.  Tragedy at the local nuclear plant doesn’t stop these two from attending their high school prom.  With great music and loads of laughs, it’s a perfect, campy summer treat.  All Seats $10 / Flex
