Music by Jeanine Tesori

Lyrics and Book by Brian Crawley

Based on “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts

Wednesday, August 29 – Sunday, September 2

Friday, September 7 – Sunday, September 9

Violet Karl is a woman with a plan.  Disfigured in a childhood accident, she is determined to alter the path of her life with faith healing.  In search of her miracle, she leaves her hometown of Spruce Pine, NC, to journey by bus to Tulsa, home of the televangelist she believes can offer her this miraculous transformation.  Instead, she learns it is the journey you take in life that helps you discover who you are, and she finds a very different kind of salvation.  Doris Betts, an acclaimed North Carolina writer, creates in Violet a strong and vibrant character in that everyone can relate to and Jeanine Tesori, one of the most vibrant composers of modern musical theatre, brings her to indelible life in a score that ranges from Jesus-praising gospel anthems to Memphis blues, from soulful bluegrass to foot-stomping dance tunes.  Uncommonly beautiful, Violet is the journey of a lifetime.

Sunset Boulevard

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Book and Lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton

Based on the Billy Wilder film

Wednesday, August 1 – Sunday, August 5

Friday, August 10 – Sunday, August 12

Friday, August 17 – Sunday, August 19

Shots ring out in the night; a man’s body floats in a swimming pool.  And so begins this classic noir tale of faded glory, thwarted ambition, and obsessive love, brought thrillingly to life by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s lush, evocative score.  After a chance encounter, down on his luck screenwriter Joe Gillis is easily seduced into the luxurious world of silent film star Norma Desmond.  Years past her prime and long out of work, Norma clings to her glamourous past, her illusions carefully tended by her devoted servant, Max.  But what will happen to Norma’s fragile world when it crashes into the harsh realities of show business?  Or when Joe finally finds a life of his own?  Sunset Boulevard is a majestic, mesmerizing, and teasingly seductive night at the theatre you do not want to miss.
