Take a Hitchcock masterpiece, mix it with a juicy spy novel, and add a smidge of Monty Python and you’ll have The 39 Steps. A man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy.  Her murder sets off a nationwide manhunt. A mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail. For anyone who loves the magic of theatre, this two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is a fast-paced whodunit packed with nonstop laughs, zany characters, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

A charming rogue schemes to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution to avoid prison work detail. Randle P. McMurphy is sent to the state mental hospital for evaluation where he encounters a motley crew of mostly voluntary inmates and clashes with the fierce head nurse. A boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel, McMurphy takes over the yard and rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in wine and women, and openly defies the rules at every turn. This insolence, which starts as sport, soon develops into a grim battle between the two unyielding opponents.

“Be our guest” in the enchanted world of this Disney beloved musical. The classic “tale as old as time” features Belle, a peculiar girl, who lives in a world of her own, built mostly from her travels through books and her encounter with the Beast, a cold-hearted prince trapped under a spell. The castle’s charmed servants, living as household objects, anxiously watch as Belle and the Beast grow to understand and befriend one another. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he and his household will be returned to their former selves–but time is running out before the curse becomes permanent. The Academy Award-winning film comes to life in this romantic and beloved fairytale with such hits as “Something There,” “Gaston,” “Be Our Guest,” “Belle” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
