Dorothy Gale, a young girl who lives on a farm in Kansas with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, gets in the way while the adults try to work. She finds a quiet place where she won't get into any trouble -Over The Rainbow. Dorothy runs away and begins a journey from Munchkin land to the Land of Oz.
Along the way she meets three new friends and travel companions. The Scarecrow explains why he needs to see the Wizard in If I Only Had A Brain. The Tinman joins them because his life would be better If I Only Had A Heart and the Lion comes along -If I Only Had The Nerve. All four sing We're Off To See The Wizard.
The travelers have many adventures along the way; with challenges from a Wicked Witch and guidance from Glinda, the Good Witch and help from Osians, Dorothy and her friends need to meet The Wizard. The Wizard of Oz, whom everyone says can help them with their questions, has requested they prove themselves worthy of the Wizard’s help by bringing him the Wicked Witches of the West’s broomstick.
Join us to see the outcome of this family friendly adventure to the Land of OZ.

If "practice" is the way to get to Carnegie Hall, how could one possibly end up at Hiram Hall, a country music palace, in Rexford, Kansas? Jo is in a pickle: she has 24 hours to save Hiram Hall, her father's country/western saloon in Rexford, Kansas, from foreclosure. Although the Hall has seen better days, she's determined to keep it open, but how? What will pack in the crowds? Mickey, Jo's hard-livin' wise-crackin' waitress has just been dyin' to get up on that stage and prove that she's got what it takes to make it as a singer, and Mo, Jo's cook/cashier, is right behind her. That's all well and good, but Jo has other plans: she wants cowgirls and she's booked the Cowgirl Trio, sure it will save the saloon. But there is no Cowgirl Trio; a misunderstanding on the phone brings to Rexford the Coghill Trio: Rita, Lee and Mary Lou, classical musicians, currently on a reunion tour. Jo isn't looking for classical music but the Coghill Trio are looking for a legitimate booking (as Mary Lou says, "where are we playing next ... Monty Hall?"). These six women surely mix like oil and water: Jo could have had a brilliant career as a country singer herself, but she gave up her dream to run her daddy's business; Mickey needs one more chance to sing or all her dreams will slip away; Mo can't bear to think that Jo might lose the place and will do anything to help her keep it; Rita planned the current tour because she and her husband are about to have their first child and she's not sure she'll ever perform again; Lee, always searching, has begun to feel like she's never going to find what she's looking for, and feels they should give Hiram Hall a chance; Mary Lou, just about to bust from following rules all her life, can't stand the fact that this isn't a real booking, and feels her career is doomed. Fate must have brought these six women together and they side out - it's classical versus country. Can they meet in the middle? Sure thing and darn tootin', and when Jo proudly presents to the public the Cowgirl Trio, you bet your bottom dollar that it razes the root!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a smash musical that has been a Broadway favorite since the 1970s. The musical centers on the controversial depiction of Judas's point of view on the death of Jesus. The show has been a smash hit for years, and was nominated for a 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
Judas is concerned about Jesus' rise to power and association with the prostitute, Mary Magdalene, but Jesus ignores him and leads his followers to Jerusalem, where Judas' concerns prove to have been valid and Jesus is crucified.
Propelled by a stirring score, Christ's final days are dramatized with contemporary emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge. Based on St John’s Gospel.
