Disney’s hit movie comes to the WiHi stage in November. While on a New Year's Eve vacation, high school hoops star Troy and brainy Gabriella--two teens who are worlds apart--meet.  During a karaoke contest, they discover their love for singing and an interest in each other.  After vacation, Troy finds out that Gabriella is the new girl at his school.  Troy and Gabriella decide to audition for the upcoming high school musical. Troy's best friend Chad and Gabriella's new friend Taylor discourage them from moving forward with their plans.  But it's Ryan and his sister Sharpay--considered the school's top theatrical talents--who really try to thwart their efforts.  Find out how Gabriella and Troy's decision to audition turns their worlds and their school upside down! A fast paced, high energy, musical including songs,  "Start of Something New", "Get'cha Head in the Game", "What I've Been Looking For", "Stick to the Status Quo", "When There Was Me and You", "Bop to the Top", "Breaking Free", "We're All in This Together", "I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You"

This world famous farce has moved millions to tears of laughter. First produced in 1892 and made into a popular movie starring Jack Benny in 1941. The plot is centered on two Oxford students Charley Wykeham, and Jack Chesney, who want time alone with sweethearts Amy Spettigue and Kitty Verdun, the niece and ward of Stephen Spettigue. Charley's aunt from Brazil (“where the nuts come from”), Donna Lucia, is supposed to act as chaperone per school rules, but is delayed, forcing the desperate boys to draft friend Lord Fancourt Babberly, to stand in as the "aunt." They're unprepared when their counterfeit Donna Lucia inspires the affections of both Jack's father Sir Francis and Mr. Spettigue--before the real Donna Lucia appears. Comic confusion reigns supreme, but all is finally sorted out in the end.

This mystery thriller’s heroine is Susy Hendrix, a blind Greenwich Village housewife who becomes the target of three thugs searching for the heroin hidden in a doll her husband transported from Canada as a favor to a woman who since has been murdered.  The trio tries to convince Susy her spouse has been implicated in the crime and the only way to protect him is to surrender the doll.  More muder and mayhem ensue when she refuses, with the stage lights turned off for the final scene when Suzy levels the playing field by plunging her apartment into total darkness.  Wait Until Dark was first presented at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in New York City on February 2, 1966.  Starring were two unknown actors at the time, Lee Remick and Robert Duvall.
