Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME – THE MUSICAL is bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.

Lyrics and Music by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley
Adapted for the stage by Leslie Bricusse andTimothy Allen McDonald 
Based on the book Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald DahlRoald Dahl’s timeless story of the world famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, which features the songs from the classic family film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The memorable score features “The Candy Man”, “Pure Imagination”, “Oompa Loompa” and ”I Want it Now”.

Music by Rodgers, Richard | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II | Based on the play GREEN GROW THE LILACS by Lynn Riggs | Original Dances by Agnes de MilleRodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
