During a grandiose wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit. Contains adult language and content. “Ball has the comic writer's requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage.” —TheaterWeek.

Gint, a tale that unfolds like a strange dream presented in a theatrical and imaginative manner, is an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's poetic drama Peer Gynt. The title character Pete Gint is determined to become “something great, grand and glorious.” Set in the Appalachian Mountains, Gint meets an obstacle at every turn, ultimately running away from responsibility toward materialistic gain. After losing everything, he begins his long journey home.

Stephen Sondheim, America’s most revered, living writer of musical theatre, weaves together stories taken from the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm in this Tony Award-winning favorite. In this comically, multilayered musical, between once upon a time and happily ever after, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant Killer and other favorites set out to have their wishes fulfilled, only to journey back into the woods as they deal with the repercussions of their previous actions. This funny and touching musical reminds us that “No One is Alone.”
