Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a Brooklyn girl with passion and grit.

Featuring a stunning array of beloved songs including “I Feel The Earth Move”, “One Fine Day”, “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”, and “You’ve Got A Friend” – fans won't want to miss this Tony® and Grammy® award-winning triumph at the Gallagher Bluedorn.

She fought her way into the record business as a teenager, and by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

“Beautiful” tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

FREEDOM RIDERS explore the valiant and courageous personalities behind one of the most critical chapters in the history of the Civil Rights movement.The play demonstrates the importance of working together to affect change and specifically how non-violent protest was used to combat the cruelties of segregation.

Set in 1961, fifteen years after the United States Supreme Court had outlawed segregation, bus lines and cities throughout the south still enforced a rigid system of separating Black and White citizens. The freedom riders, both Black and White Americans, decided to travel together on buses that crossed state lines purposefully disregarding the hateful segregation practices that were still commonplace in so many parts of the United States. The unforgettable heroes and the facts behind the events portrayed in FREEDOM RIDERS are essential to a full understanding of the civil rights era and American history.

This drama is based in the true story of the Jena Six: six Black students who were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after a provoking incident on campus. “When the central character, a black female student named Raylynn, decides it’s time for change in her high school, she sits under a tree around which only white students regularly gather. In response - as was the case in Jena - nooses are subsequently hung from that tree, causing many black students to erupt in protest." (American Theatre)

This piece is filled with poetry, music, and choreography which help lift up the script’s important message.

Content Warning: This play contains topics related to the marginalization of specific groups, and the use of language and images that may be disturbing to some.

Cinderella

Cinderella
By: Rogers, Hamerstein, Carter Beane

Music by Richard Rodgers / Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II / New Book by Douglas Carter Beane / Original Book by Oscar Hammerstein II

This is not your mother's Cinderella. The story needs no introduction, as it is based on the popular folk tale told for centuries with music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hammerstein. This fresh new version features many of the well-known songs, "Ten Minutes Ago", "The Stepsisters Lament", "Impossible", and "In My Own Little Corner", but has a reworked book by Douglas Carter Beane. This up to date new version pulls at the seams of the classic fairy tale, evoking humor for children and adults alike. With thrilling visual effects, this retelling of the classic tale is exciting, touching and funny! We will include a focus on making this production available for all families, including those that include youth and young adults with exceptionalities. Two public performances will include numerous production adjustments in order to better support individuals with autism and other developmental delays.
