Thanks to many of you, the Summer Theatre production of Oklahoma!  is SOLD OUT!  Eight of the ten performances played to full houses.

But now is the time to make your plans to see Jekyll and Hyde, the new Broadway musical.  It is a true musical theatrical phenomenon, an evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil. 

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel, it's the story of a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpoint.  In an attempt to cure his father's mental illness, Dr. Henry Jekyll unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th-century London.  

"Chillingly brilliant," said the New York Post. 

"Powerfully charismatic...torrents of surging melody," another critic raved.  

"Pulse pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as Phantom of the Opera...a lush, romantic pop score..." said another reviewer.

An extremely strong cast is headed by Jared Bradshaw, who last summer wowed audiences with his performance in Singin' in the Rain.  Jared returns after several months on a Disney cruise ship entertaining crowds.  

The Ticket Office is open daily from 10:00 am until show time for your convenience.  Credit cards accepted!

Tickets are only $15.00.  Give us a call (6534) or come by and get set for an experience you won't soon forget.
