    Crazy for You

    Book by Ken Ludwig
    Lyrics by Ira Gershwin
    Music by George Gershwin.

    Directed by Matt Giles
    Music Directed by Steven Tran
    Choreographed by TBD

    About the Show:
    A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

    Seussical, Jr.

    Music by Stephen Flaherty
    Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
    Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
    Co-conceived by Eric Idle

    Director: Sheady Manning
    Choreographer: UJ Mangune
    Music Director: Claire Marx

    About the Show:
    Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
