Based on the comic strip characters of the same name, this musical features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn in the early 1950s: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters, and you have a recipe for hilarity.

A Chorus Line is a stunning musical-vérité about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration. Memorable musical numbers include “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three,” “The Music and the Mirror,” “What I Did for Love,” “One (Singular Sensation),” and “I Hope I Get It”. It is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. The show was instantly recognized as a classic.
Rated: PG-13; Language, Including Sexual Dialogue, and Brief Smoking

It’s 1935, and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama. Nonetheless, young Scout, as she is fondly called manages to live a rather carefree, privileged existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when Scout watches her father, Atticus Finch, defend an innocent man, Tom Robinson, against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. Scout begins to realize that just because society portrays something as being true doesn’t mean that it actually is fact. With the the help of Atticus, and her older brother Jem, Scout learns that “growing up” often means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost. To Kill A Mockingbird is now considered an American masterpiece about the power of childhood innocence, morality, and love.
Rated: PG-13; Thematic material, some language, and mild references to rape
