While touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, rough and tumble sharpshooter Annie Oakley meets her match, both of the heart and on the range – fellow ace gunslinger Frank Butler. While Annie and Frank are performing as part of the world-famous traveling show, the two compete for best shot. This fictionalized version of the life of real- life sharpshooter Annie Oakley boasts a score of Irving Berlin hits including "There's No Business Like Show Business," "I Got the Sun in the Mornin'," "Anything You Can Do" and "They Say It's Wonderful."

A 20-year drought has caused a terrible water shortage forcing a government ban on private toilets. Anyone caught going anywhere other than the pay-as-you-go abodes, owned and operated by the Urine Good Company, will be sent to the dreaded and mysterious "Urinetown." Hero Bobby Strong urges the town to "Run, Freedom, Run" and revolt. A crowd-pleasing satire reminding us it's a "Privilege to Pee" but to "Follow Your Heart," Urinetown is an intelligent comedic romp sure to please.

This powerful production inspired by the Brothers Grimm reminds us to be careful what you wish for. A baker and his wife wish for children but due to a witches curse are unable. On their journey to find the ingredients that will reverse the witch's spell – hair as yellow as corn, a cow white as milk, a blood-red cape and a slipper made of gold – the baker and his wife meet Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack of the Beanstalk. Each character in this Sondheim classic is in search of the key to fulfilling their wishes. But what happens beyond happily ever after? Is it "Agony" or something else?
