PUMP BOYS - The 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the DoublSe Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway. With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils."Both musically and theatrically, a triumph of ensemble playing. It doesn't merely celebrate the value of friendship and life's simple pleasures, it embodies them." - The New York Times "Totally terrific...It is such fun." - The New York Post
SPEAKEASY - A New Musical which premiered in Houston was developed by Rachel Landon, Liz Tinder and SRO Theater. SPEAKEASY is an immersive theatre experience that provides patrons with a glimpse into the Prohibition era. The show features popular 1920's era hits such as Charleston, I Want to Be Bad and You Oughta Be in Pictures, as well as, roaring dance numbers. PASA will be transformed into a Speakeasy/Bistro with tables available. Dance video will be posted on the website to learn and if you come in costume there are some dances you’ll be able to join the cast on-stage! Show runs the end of March and early April.
JEKYLL & HYDE - The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret..
CABARET – Based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood and a 1951 play by John Van Druten, this musical features music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters Sally Bowles at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she sings. When she is fired by the club’s owner, her jealous boyfriend, she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically.
