Scrooge The Musical
Directed by: Guthrie Horgan
In 1970, renowned writer/composer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse adapted the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol into the hit screen musical Scrooge. Now available as a charming stage musical, Scrooge has enjoyed a hugely successful tour of England and a season at London’s Dominion Theatre starring the late Anthony Newly. Included are six new songs not performed in the film. This sure-fire audience pleaser is available in two versions: as a full-length musical and in a fifty-five-minute adaptation that is ideal for small theatre groups and schools, where it can be performed as a short play or as part of a seasonal concert. Selected pieces from the most popular musical numbers are included in the shortened adaptation.

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
Bye Bye Birdie
Directed by: Anna Olson
The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock-and-roll idol -- Conrad Birdie -- has been drafted into the US army. His songwriter and agent, Albert, and Albert’s secretary and some-time girlfirend, Rosie, hatch a plan for a farewell performance to take place on The Ed Sullivan Show, which they hope will help sell Birdie’s new song “One Last Kiss,” and ultimately save Almaelou records from going under. To cap off the performance, Birdie will actually give ‘one last kiss’ to Kim MacAfee, an avid member of the Conrad Birdie fan club from Sweet Apple, Ohio.
When Albert and Rosie head to Sweet Apple to prepare for Birdie’s arrival, things start to unravel. Kim’s father is starstruck at the thought of being on The Ed Sullivan Show with his daughter, and Kim’s new steady, Hugo gets jealous at the thought of Kim kissing Conrad on national television.
