H.M.S. Pinafore
Oct 21 - Nov 19, 2016
Music by Arthur Sullivan
Book & Lyrics by W. S. Gilbert
Welcome aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore, Gilbert & Sullivan's classic operetta! Captain 
Corcoran tries to marry his daughter to the lofty Sir Joseph Porter, but she falls in love 
with a lowborn sailor. This zany, internationally-renowned show features well-known 
G&S songs including "I'm Called Little Buttercup" and "We Sail the Ocean Blue".

Peter and the Starcatcher
Feb 10-25, 2017
Book by Rick Elice
Music by Wayne Barker

This 2012 Tony-winning play is a wildly imaginative adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley
 Pearson’s best-selling novels, telling how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy 
Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants 
to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores 
the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.

Mary Poppins
June 2 - July 1, 2017
Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the Oscar-winning 1964 film, this authorized 
Disney musical production was adapted for West End and Broadway by Julian Fellowes, 
the creator of “Downton Abbey’, and won the Olivier award in 2005. The original 
Broadway production ran for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for 
nine Olivier and seven 2007 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Dancing chimney 
sweeps, flying kites, spoonfuls of sugar, and classic Disney songs you know and love!
