This musical review is a romantic journey from young infatuation to the touching and funny complexities of commitment and marriage, the joys of parenthood, and the power of enduring love. It features over 30 songs from the beloved Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals such as Carousel, Oklahoma, The King and I, South Pacific, Cinderella, and The Sound of Music, as well as lesser-known works such as Allegro, Me and Juliet, State Fair, Pipe Dream, and Flower Drum Song. Rodgers & Hammer-
stein signature songs like “OH, What a Beautiful Mornin” to “Some Enchanted Evening”
are placed in a new context, in a way that celebrates the colossal appeal of their legendary songbook.

 A Season of Thought, Music, Laughter, and A Few Tears
Fiddler On The Roof
Book by Joseph Stein Music by Jerry Bock Lyrics by Sheldon Harick
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with tradition in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
Rich in historical and ethnic detail, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF’s universal theme of tradition cuts across
barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
Flamingo Court
By Luigi Creatore
This three part "slice of life" takes place in three different condos and has audiences laughing at the truth they see in what might be their own neighbors - only zanier.
Flamingo Court 
 has ten characters. Which can be played by five actors in all the roles or cast up to ten actors. In any case, audiences respond to this trilogy with uproarious laughter and leave feeling they have experienced great entertainment.
, in 104,
 is a Neil-Simonesque three-character piece that starts with smiles and grows into a hilarious, audience-howling ending.
, in 204,
is the shortest piece (ten to twelve minutes). It deals with two characters in a poignant look at the problems of aging and separation. Powerful theater!
, in 304
, a five character play - and the wackiest - deals with an eighty-nine year-old gentleman who is battling his greedy daughter at the same time that he gets involved with an aging hooker. When the daughter and the hooker meet "the audience laughs up a Florida-
worthy hurricane”.
Don’t Hug Me, I’m Pregnant
By Phil Olson Lyrics by Paul Olson 
The story takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, in a little bar called "The Bunyan," owned by Clara and Gunner Johnson. Clara is 8½ months pregnant with their first child, and today she's looking forward to her baby shower, getting lots of presents, and taking a break from her raging hormones. Suddenly, a freak snow storm, a "tsnownami," hits Bunyan Bay and they find themselves snowed in. All roads are closed. No one can get in or leave. Gunner's worst nightmare comes true when Clara goes into labor and he realizes he's going to have to deliver the baby in the bar. Featuring 17 original songs including, "Babies and Beer," "If I Only Had a Boy," "Bun in the Oven," "Baby Fever," "The 'Just Got Hosed Over by a Dork' Blues," and "If
 Had Babies, We'd All Be Extinct."
Steel Magnolias
y Robert Harling
The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repar-tee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength
and love
which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
