Great American Melodrama and Vaudeville

Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms the classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure featuring 5 actors playing dozens of roles.

The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their killer, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.
January 18 – March 4

Greg and Kate live a seaming happy life in New York City. Then Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age.

To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
March 8 – April 22

This Melodrama original is a blend of comedy and melodrama inspired by characters from the stories of Bret Harte and Mark Twain. This action packed show brings a mining camp roaring to life filled with love, betrayal, deceit and villainy.

Set in the Sierras, this sensational show offers loads of opportunities  to boo the villain, cheer the hero, and laugh yourself silly at the colorful characters that inhabit the rough and tumble world of the California Gold Rush.

The Melodrama favorite returns! Young Jack and Jill Peabody live in Victorian London with their widowed father, a nutty inventor with little time to pay attention to his children. But when the children write to their favorite Super Nanny, they get more than they bargained for — instead of Mary Poppins they end up with her bizarre twin sister, Scary Poppins.

And when an evil Russian ambassador shows up desperate to get his hands on one of Professor Peabody’s inventions, it’s up to Scary Poppins to save the day. Full of hilarious song satires and pop culture references, this show is a “practically perfect” parody for the whole family.
September 20 – November 11
