Book by Shubert Fendrich
Music and lyrics by George M. Cohan

This story is teaming with the celebrated show tunes of George M.  Cohan, including “Give My Regards to Broadway” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag.”  Dick Foster’s Broadway show is opening, but he’s having serious problems.  Stubborn leading ladies and minimal working capital are just a few of his headaches.  An aspiring young actress, Mary Collins, walks on the stage and could be the one to save the show, if only they had the money to put it on.  To complicate matters, ’Legs’ Ruby enters the scene.  He’s on the run from the mob and brings with him an of shifty characters.  Just as all appears lost for Dick and his dream show, an ’angel’ arises with the financial backing.  Mary gets her big chance at stardom, and the show goes on!

Shakespeare Comes to Calamity Creek

August 2001

Book by Tim Kelly
Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur

Ah, Shakespeare in the...  Old West?!  Noble Hart, a conceited actor, arrives in the small mining town of Calamity Creek determined to bring culture to the locals.  His troupe of actors is enough to make a playwright cry.  The one exception is the lovely Sunny Day.  She falls for Texas Ranger Johnny Lasso, who’s hot on the trail of a notorious crook masquerading under the name of Gentleman Dan, whose true identity is unknown.  The troupe’s arrival thrills the townspeople, except Abagail Pettigrew who's harboring a dark secret.

Directed by Shileah Corey, Choreographed by Dayna Sayler
