WONDER OF THE WORLD
by David Lindsay-Abaire - October 5, 6 and 12, 13, 14
Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband's sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It's a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as playwright David Lindsay-Abaire explores marital discord run amok in this revved-up, joyously zany extravaganza of a play.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, this fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science. A harrowing account of our collective capacity for denial juxtaposed with our individual capacity for courage.THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Scheinkin - February 22, 23 and March 1, 2, 3
Fun. F-U-N. Fun. That's what this show's Tony Award winning creative team has created: A hilarious tale of overachiever angst chronicling the experience of six quirky, puberty-crazed outsiders vying for spelling bee glory. This hit musical about the unlikeliest of heroes teaches that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
by Anton Chekhov - April 26, 27 and May 3, 4, 5
Transplanted from their beloved Moscow to a provincial Russian town, three sisters-school teacher Olga, unhappily married Masha, idealistic Irina-yearn for the city of their childhood, where they imagine their lives will be transformed. Three Sisters is Chekhov's masterpiece portrait of a family grappling with the bittersweet realization that while dreams may be unfulfilled there must always be hope.
