However, she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good-looking - the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin III, whose best friend is his computer, and who believes the crazy notion that one day CD's will replace cassette tapes. Throw in a Star Wars dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80's party scene, copious amounts of blue eye-shadow, twenty cans of hairspray, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that not only will delight and amuse audiences of any age, but will also inspire any young cast.

Synopsis: Set in Berlin in 1929 - 1930 at the end of the Weimar Republic era and just  before the rise of the Third Reich, amidst rampant unemployment, economic  depression, and political unrest, the principal action takes place in the  "decadent" Kit-Kat Club where, as they say, anything goes. The leering,  omniscient, epicene, and nameless Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience in three languages ("Wilkommen") after which the waiters  dance to finger snaps. This tune is referred to throughout the show. Showgirl  Sally Bowles from London is first encountered in her pragmatic song "So What"  ("The sun will rise and the moon will set and you learn to settle for what you  get"). She moves in with young American writer Cliff Bradshaw at Fräulein  Schneider's boarding house. Schneider is meanwhile having an affair with Jewish  fruiter Herr Schultz ("It Couldn't Please Me More" about the gift of a  pineapple, and the "Fruit Shop Dance"). At the club, the "Telephone Dance"  depicts patrons and girls hooking up for drinks ("Table seven calling number  three, How are you, handsome?") with some great scoring for cabaret-style pit  orchestra. Sally sings the vampy but upbeat "Don't Tell Mama" about her chosen  lifestyle. At home, Sally advises Cliff in "Perfectly Marvelous" how to describe  their relationship as an innocent affair. Back at the club, the emcee sings the  jolly "Two Ladies" about his ménage à trois. The presence of impending evil  becomes apparent in the Hitler Youth song "Tomorrow Belongs To Me," a chorale  and canon in Ländler rhythm. Cliff romances over his affair with Sally in "Why  Should I Wake Up?" ("This dream is going so well..."). At the club, money is  praised in "Sitting Pretty" which includes a Russian dance, a Can-can, and a tap  dance. Fräulein Schneider praises marriage ("Married" and "What Would You Do?")  and so does Schultz ("Meeskite") but they are forced to part after Nazis break  up their engagement party. Various kick line routines begin Act II, and "If You  Could See Her Through My Eyes" ("She wouldn't look Jewish at all...") is sung to  a (costume) gorilla. Sally becomes pregnant with Cliff's child, Cliff is beaten  up when he discovers he has been unwittingly made a courier for Nazi funds and  refuses to continue, Sally aborts the child, Cliff leaves and the "Wilkommen"  reprise is now harsh and foreboding.

Synopsis: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Monty Python's Spamalot's plot retells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. However, diverting a bit from the true story, this hilarious musical features such oddities as a line of beautiful dancing girls, a farting Frenchman, and killer rabbits. Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad.Along the way, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say “ Ni.” The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including "Best Musical," and received 14 Tony Award nominations.

Synopsis: This madcap comedy centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's, whose acting careers have seen better days. While appearing in Buffalo, New York, in a repertory company’s productions of Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, who are on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing.
