Written by Wendy Kesselman, Albert Hackett, Frances Goodrich

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. Each day of these two dark years while hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, Anne’s voice shines through: “When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!” This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

The place is the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven, the time a few days before the Fourth of July.

9 to 5 The Musical

Directed by Heather May
Musical Comedy
Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton Book by Patricia Resnick

9 to 5 The Musical is based on the 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970’s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy—giving their boss the boot and take control of the company that had always kept them down. And hey, this was about 40 years before the #Me Too Movement.
