The year is 1912, a period in United States history marked by optimism, patriotism, and a strong sense of community–particularly in smaller cities. The best known song is undoubtedly the stirring SEVENTY-SIX TROMBONES, sung by Harold as he paints the vision of a boys’ Town Band resplendent with the instruments and uniforms he has persuaded their mothers and fathers to buy. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef.  His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian.

The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski.  Written by JIM JACOBS and WARREN CASEY.  Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. May not be suitable for children under 13.

They’re Back, Y’all! Third in a series of comedic plays, each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state. Two people will play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages. An affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. Along with Tuna’s perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Strong Language, Mild Adult Themes. May not be suitable for children under 14.

Ever’body has secrets…and the secrets in the town of Second Samuel are quite surprising.  People get along and support one another, even if they gossip a bit and have their nose in everyone else’s business. It was a simpler time in 1951 Georgia. Or was it?  We won’t give away the surprise, but we will tell you this story has an always welcome message of tolerance with a real heart at its center.  Written by Pamela Parker.  Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Inc. May not appeal to young children.
