In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

I had only seen this done by local, amateur groups before and it was wonderful to see it done by a more professional group. The actors and singers were wonderful and we all really enjoyed it. It was well worth going to and we wish we had known how good it was going to be in time to tell others about it.
Our tickets were also great and we were close enough to be able to see and hear well.

An Unforgettable Score!
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 Times 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, desparate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.
Guys and Dolls has an unforgettable score by Frank Loesser that includes such classics as "Adelaide's Lament," "Luck Be a Lady Tonight" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat".
