Featuring all-new original, lush and infectious songs by eight-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Newsies”). “Sister Act” tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect—a convent! Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.

A Christmas Carol
Miserly and miserable Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with a “bah humbug,” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through a restless night, the spirits show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from the present and the grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways.
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is a perennial favorite that continues our holiday tradition for the 43rd year. Now is the time to experience this cherished production with your loved ones!

Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley
The beloved Bennet sisters and their spouses gather at the Darcy home for Christmas a few years after Austen left off. When middle Miss Bennet, Mary, unexpectedly encounters shy bookworm Arthur de Bourgh, she finds a kindred spirit and intellectual equal. But, since Arthur is a “single man in possession of a good fortune,” she’s hardly his only admirer. Mary must learn to be the heroine of her own story in this charming holiday romance.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just … Almost.
One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine, will never be the same.
