The Fantasticks

Book and lyrics by Tom Jones; music by Harvey Schmidt Main Stage: August 22-25, August 29 - September 1

Remember the days of sweet young love in this romantic charmer of a musical! The Fantasticks is the longest running production in American theatre for good reason: the intimate and funny poetry of the script, the catchy songs, the nostalgic story…your whole family will be enchanted.

The Underpants

by Steve Martin, adapted from Carl Sternheim Black Box: September 19-22, September 26-29, October 3-5

Much to the dismay of boorish Theo Maske, his wife created a public scandal when she accidentally lost her underpants in public. Theo decides to keep her out of public view to avoid future incidents, but chaos ensues when some witnesses to the incident decide they’d like to see a little more. Steve Martin’s laugh-out-loud comedy is a retelling of Carl Sternheim’s 1910 play Die Hose.

The Drowsy Chaperone

When a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, the 1920s musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet, her boozy chaperone, and a rambunctious crew of wedding guests.

by Donald Margulies Main Stage: November 14-17, 21-24

An adaptation of the Victorian memoirs of would-be adventurer Louis de Rougemont, Shipwrecked! spins together anecdotes of a man-eating octopus, flying turtles, and pearl fishing expedition gone mightily awry. Suitable for ages 10 and up.

The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

By David Edgar, adapted from Charles Dickens’ novel Orlando Shakespeare Theater: January 22 - March 9 (See Orlando Shakespeare Theater for exact dates and times)

A cast of 30 plays over 150 characters in this exhilarating two-part play following a virtuous young Nicholas as he meets and masters the challenges of poverty and corruption in Victorian England. Winner of both the Tony Award® for Best Play and The Olivier Award for Play of the Year, this epic event has never been produced in Central Florida. We're pulling out all the stops for an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience that captures Dickens' genius for combining exuberant characters, theatrical spectacle, and genuine emotion.

Leveling Up

by Deborah Zoe Laufer Main Stage: January 16-19, 23-26

Ian, Zan, and Chuck are two years out of college and playing video games twenty hours a day when the government comes looking for expert gamers to launch remote missiles. And the bombs and the guns and the screams and the victories are so similar to the ones on their Xbox.
