November 2, 2017 - December 23, 2017: Miracle on 34th Street

Based on the beloved Christmas movie, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET is a big brassy Broadway musical with a heart. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade needs a new Santa. Enter Kris Kringle – a sweet and jolly old man who claims that he is the real Santa Claus. Thus begins this funny, warm, tuneful, and inspirational musical as Kris has to prove his claim in court and teach his cynical neighbor and her daughter to believe in the goodness and love that is Christmas. Written by Meredith Willson, the creator of THE MUSIC MAN, this is an unforgettable musical version of a classic Christmas tale.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday plus extra performances in December.

December 29, 2017 - February 18, 2018: Yeston & Kopit’s Phantom

For over a century, audiences have been captivated by the tragic story of the disfigured genius who makes his home in the cavernous underground of the Paris Opera House and falls in love with Christine – the beautiful soprano he can never have. Hailed as “the finest PHANTOM of them all,” Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s moving presentation digs deep into the life of this tortured soul in a show filled with romance and mystery, thrills and excitement, colors and humor, and of course, their lyrical and luxurious music. Your heart races, your soul soars, and you fall in love all over again. It is, quite simply, an unforgettable theatrical experience!

Adapted from the Disney film set in New York at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets.
