nationally and internationally, LITTLE WOMEN has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless captivating
story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love. The

Civil War America. LITTLE WOMEN embodies
the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing
a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. There will be a gala performance of LITTLE WOMEN on

ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID
- February 14
In this hilarious comedic romp,
four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings…no
matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern belles are still making "the long walk" for each other,
determined to honor that vow. Libby Ruth, the hopeful romantic with the perfect marriage, believes—in spite of all evidence
to the contrary—that her friends can find the very same happiness. Deedra's "rock-solid"
union hangs by a thread when she discovers her husband of many years not only has a wandering eye, but the hands to match.
Monette, flashy, high-spirited and self-involved, continues to test her friends' love and patience with all-too-frequent trips
down the aisle. And salt-of-the-earth, tree-hugging Charlie discovers that marital bliss is not the end of her rainbow and
panics in outrageous style when the opportunity presents itself. Hop on this marriage-go-round for a laugh-out-loud journey
with these beleaguered bridesmaids as they navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony.
Libby Ruth, Deedra, Monette and Charlie are committed to the notion that careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear,
but real friendships last a lifetime. Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the
perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides and the mistaken, and unfortunate, release of a flock
of white doves on the first day of hunting season. ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID is the rollicking tale of four loyal and determined
women who definitively answer the question, "Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?"
If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride's bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of
the duo saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, join us for this zany, fun-filled

FAMILY FURNITURE is a period
piece set in the early 1950s, a time of luncheon clubs, Studebakers and casual bigotry, but there is nothing dated about the
emotions portrayed therein, and nothing in any way rusty about the self-assured craftsmanship with which Mr. Gurney puts them
onstage. He is an American master, one of the best playwrights that we have, and in FAMILY FURNITURE he shows us that his
mastery, against all odds, is continuing to deepen…a tender, sepia-toned play about a traumatic passage in the lives
of a tight-knit, well-bred clan…[Gurney] expresses a graceful respect for all his characters, who are drawn with his
customary gentle humor and sympathy. It's an old-fashioned, 1950s-set gin-on-the-rocks drama, and it's a pure delight. This
is a Darwinian lesson for the modern, civilized world, in which keeping up appearances is a more useful survival mechanism
than honesty…It's this unseen churning under a placid surface that gives this subtle play its tension.
