Gypsy isn't just good, The New York Times admitted it "may be the greatest of all American musicals." And Mama Rose wouldn't have it any other way. Only a musical as epic as Gypsy could capture the real-life Rose, the ultimate stage mom, who groomed her two daughters to be vaudeville stars ... only to see one of them leave it all behind to become a burlesque sensation. With a book by Arthur Laurents (West Side Story), music by Jule Styne (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Funny Girl) and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods), the multiple Tony Award winner is the very definition of a "must-see" musical. Enjoy crowd-pleasing classics like "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Let Me Entertain You," "You Gotta Get a Gimmick" and the show-stopping "Rose's Turn" during this dynamic production directed by Kim Saunders at Sunnyvale Theatre.

Patience is set in a contemporary English village, where Bunthorne, an ardent Star Trek fan, is worshipped by all the young ladies who have become Star Trek fans to gain his attention. That is to say, all except for the one he most wants, Patience. The local army regiment returns home on leave to find that even their own fiancees are infatuated with Bunthorne and cosplay dressing in Star Trek garb! A rival science fiction fan, Grosvenor, who adheres to the Doctor Who series, arrives in town and complications mount when he, too, falls in love with Patience. Who will win the heart of Patience–the Trekkie or the Whovian?
