2019 season-GOLDEN.png

Feb 8-March 31

THE GOLDEN GIRLS

Thank you for being a friend! Due to the overwhelming success of our productions and audience requests, the show was renewed for a fourth season with the antics of those four mature women living in Miami experiencing the joys and angst of their golden years. With Monte Wheeler, Kyle Vespestad, Scott Noah and Tom Frye and guest appearance by Christine Tasheff, see 3 new episodes, laughing and learning until your stomach aches. RATED PG

2019 season-Q.png

April 12-May 8

AVENUE Q

This triple crown Tony winner is part flesh, part felt. and packed with heart. Another “coming of age” parable, notable for its use of puppets, this wacky musical comedy brings us characters from the other side of Sesame Street.Directed by Kyle Vespestad, you’ll want to see his stamp on these unforgettable characters, both live and puppets, as they examine life’s disillusionments realizing “It Sucks to Be Me,” they’re “Not Wearing Any Underwear Today,” that no matter what, it’s only “For Now” and that “Fantasies Come True.” RATED PG13

2019 season-LOVE.png

June 1-30

LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!

Winner of both Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Play, Terrence McNally’s masterpiece of 8 friends, 3 weekends and a lifetime of living to do over the course of one summer highlights our tribute to the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and the beginning of Pride Festivals in June. Utterly contemporary, the plays one-liners create pathos, comedy and tinged with sentimentality. Join us for this incredible experience. With brief nudity and some strong sexual content, we’ve rated our production. RATED R.

2019 season-FORBIDDEN.png

July 5-August 24

FORBIDDEN BROADWAY’S GREATEST HITS

Regional Premiere! Getting it’s premiere in 1982, Gerard Alessandrini has rewritten the show more than a dozen times over the years. Come see our cast spoof, parody and take direct hits at show tunes, characters, and plots of contemporary and current Broadway musicals. Taunting popular shows like Les Miserables, Chicago, Wicked, Annie and taking direct aim at directors, choreographers, actors and others our July and August offering will have you laughing out loud and wanting to sing along. RATED G

2019 season-BOOM.png

September 6-29

tick, tick....BOOM!

This Outer Critics Circle Award winner, written by Jonathan Larson (author of RENT) receives its Regional Premiere at Roxy’s just as Lin Manuel Miranda is set to direct the film version. Set in 1990, the intense fear and frustration of not having a career, turning 30, and trying to decide how to choose between the passion he loves or listening to the people he loves is truly reflective of the tragically shortened life of Larson. A nakedly autobiographical musical, your hearts will tick, faster and faster, and their echos will serve as a haunting reminder of a significant talent lost too soon. RATED PG

2019 season-HOCUS.png

Oct 11-Nov 3

HOCUS POCUS

This unauthorized musical parody of the cult classic features the antics of three sisters who are resurrected in Salem, MA, after three centuries on Halloween night. It’s up to two teenagers, a young girl and an immortal cat to put their reign of terror to an end once and for all. Run amuck with these three sisters; but, be careful, it’ll cast a spell on you! RATED PG

2019 season-TUNA.png

Nov 14-Dec 22

A TUNA CHRISTMAS

Second in the series of plays, featuring this comedic duo, Jaston Williams has crafted an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes while producing withering satire of the same. Centering on the town’s annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, a “Christmas Phantom” threatens to throw the contest into turmoil Remember The Big Bang….well, here we go again! Two men play the entire cast of over 20 eccentric characters of multiple genders and various ages. Nominated for a Tony award, there was a command performance at the White House for President George H. W. & Barbara Bush. RATED PG


ANNOUNCING OUR UNFILTERED SERIES

2019 season-DOG.png

Jan 11-Jan 27

DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD

Wichita Premiere! A reimagining of the popular characters from the comic strip Peanuts disguised as degenerate teenagers. Good grief! Schulz’s characters, as visualized by Bert V. Royal, are crass, full of guilty pleasures, their lives on the fringe, their language and behavior unfiltered. Not child appropriate, for its strong language and issues examined, the “Doctor Is In” during January. RATED R
