The classic computer game The Oregon Trail gets a delightfully faithful stage adaptation -- bandits, dysentery and all. Known for their witty wizardly mash-up A Very Potter Musical, StarKid Productions' latest musical comedy The Trail To Oregon! follows a dysfunctional pioneer family as they fight their way cross-country by covered wagon, hunting, fording rivers and battling snakes, measles, typhoid and other dangers every step of the way. While those who grew up playing the The Oregon Trail game will delight in seeing its unintentionally hilarious grim scenarios unfold onstage, everyone at this show will revel in StarKid's side-splitting show tunes and razor-sharp dialogue.

Set in New York, Sondheim’s groundbreaking musical Company tells the story of five couples and their mutual friend Robert who, at age 35, is reluctant to settle down and get married like the rest of his friends. He’s sure that the perfect girl is waiting for him, and until she makes herself known, he is content to amuse himself with the countless women who come to New York every day. So, he watches and learns from the various couples and sees both the wonders and pitfalls of relationships. In the end though, Robert realizes that while relationships rarely turn out like they do in fairy tales, life is still better when you have someone to share it with.
