Buddy's Back!

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf on his quest to find his true identity. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poortoy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf.

Tony Manero lives for the weekends when he and his friends go to the local disco and dance the night away. When a big dance competition is announced, he wrangles the beautiful and talented Stephanie to be his partner. As the two train for the big night, they start to fall for each other as well.  Based on the 1977 movie phenomenon that launched the disco era and made John Travolta a household name, Saturday Night Fever features hit songs from the Bee Gees — such as “Stayin’ Alive,” “Disco Inferno,” and “How Deep Is Your Love” — and is one of the most successful movie sound tracks of all time, winning a 1979 Grammy for Album of the Year and staying on U.S. album chart until March 1980. The stage musical includes almost all of the songs from the original movie sound track, and the high-octane energy will bring you back to the time when disco was king!

This musical romantic comedy involves the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical 
missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a Craps-game manager who is quite the opposite. From the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City, Guys and Dolls demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.”

Based on the award-winning film starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, and featuring memorable tunes such as   “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” 
this is a classic musical for audiences of any age!
