Monty Python's Spamalot
Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle
Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle
Directed by Earl Reid
September 25 to October 11, 2015
Auditions: July 19 and 20, 2015

From the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?


A Tuna Christmas
By Ed Howard, Joe Sears, Jaston Williams
Directed by Michelle Kriz
November 27 to December 13, 2015
Auditions: October 4 and 5, 2015

In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens, some you will recognize from Greater Tuna and some appearing here for the first time, join in the holiday fun.

"A hoot!" —The New York Times

"The hilarity...never lets up." —The Village Voice

Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending parenthood?

August: Osage County
By Tracy Letts
Directed by Marla Bronstein
April 22 to May 8, 2016
Auditions: February 7 and 8, 2016

Warning: Adult language and themes

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.

"This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the dinner table with the great American family plays." — Time Magazine


Anything Goes
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman
Directed by Teri Grimes
June 10 to 26, 2016
Auditions: April 10 and 11, 2016

The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes. This show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where Anything Goes!
