 2014 CAST Summer Camps

“I’ve always believed the stage to be the perfect ‘play’ ground for the imagination!”

WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE OUR 44th SEASON OF PLAYS AND MUSICALS!

.

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
October 18 – November 3, 2013

Special evening performance on Halloween night!

IT’S ALIVE! From comedy legend Mel Brooks, creator of the record-breaking Broadway sensation THE PRODUCERS comes this monster new musical comedy. With such memorable tunes as The Transylvania Mania, He Vas My Boyfriend and Puttin’ On The Ritz, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment…and the only place you’ll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made.

ANNIE
December 6 – 22, 2013

Leapin’ Lizards! The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan ANNIE charms everyone’s hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, ANNIE escapes to the wondrous and magical world of NYC. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Songs include: Hard Knock Life, Little Girls, Easy Street and Tomorrow.

THE HOBBIT
January 17 – 26, 2014

Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo’s door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, 11 ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested—at first. But Bilbo’s love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy dark places.

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
February 28 – March 16, 2014

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for best play. In this ferociously entertaining play, the American dysfunctional family drama comes roaring into the twenty-first century with eyes blazing, nostrils flaring and fangs bared. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. This major new play unflinchingly – and uproariously – exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. CONTAINS STRONG ADULT LANGUAGE AND MATURE THEMES.

GUYS AND DOLLS
April 25 – May 11, 2014

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy – considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy – soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. Songs include: Fugue for Tinhorns, A Bushel and a Peck, I’ll Know, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat and Luck Be a Lady.

LEADING LADIES
June 6 – 22, 2014

In this hilarious comedy, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.
