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.

Brendan Behan’s most celebrated play set in a Dublin brothel is a rollicking, bawdy comedy, full of brawling energy, song and satire. The lives of its colorful inhabitants are disrupted one evening when a young British soldier is brought in to be held in exchange for an IRA loyalist about to be executed. Laughter, tears, joy, and fear intertwine in this music hall staging directed by Jonathan Berry.
