A very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows. Its theme, which concerns caring, sharing and the importance of cultivating friends, makes this a very special and enchanting musical suitable for any occasion.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire. Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science. A Zenith Players production; Directed by Claire Bochenek.

The off-Broadway musical sensation that ran for twelve years, this celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro | Music by Jimmy Roberts | Directed by Richard Boyer

Based on the motion picture "A Christmas Story." Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial. Adapted by Philip Grecian | Directed by Richard Boyer

ONE NIGHT ONLY/SPECIAL EVENTS
[It's Your Line Now] "It's Your Line Now!" - Improv Comedy
Saturday, April 14 @ 8PM
Price: $25.00
more »
One Night Only! With “IT’S YOUR LINE NOW” you don't just watch the show your part of it. Never insulting, never mean. Whether it is booked for family style or edgy adult the people they bring up on stage become instant celebrities. These guys have been referred to as “The quickest thinkers in show biz” . This fast-paced off-the-cuff show can be based entirely on the vibe of the audience and venue or the theme of a corporate event. Because audience interaction is encouraged with the performers there is no predicting the punchline, and no two shows are the same! 'It's Your Line Now' is a hysterical high-energy evening filled with call backs and catch phrases that those in attendance will be using for months or years to come!

There's a reason theaters have booked Al Isaacs & Scott Baker's shows year after year, and resorts feature them weekly for months at a time. It's the same reason that there have been fans who have come to see them eight or nine times.

Al and Scott have spent years honing their craft and the result is a one of a kind experience that has audiences cheering. Their material is not only flexible to be age appropriate to the room, from family friendly to a 'late night edge', but can be customized for corporate or regional shows to include event specific material! By getting the audience involved with all aspects of the show they make a theater filled with strangers feel like a living room with close friends! Everything from audience members shouting out suggestions, providing sound effects, or even playing a role right along on stage! Best of all it's all in the name of fun without embarrassing or insulting any of the participants.

And when you throw in the magic and comedy of legendary Long Island entertainer Vinnie Mark - you get an evening of comedy that nobody will ever forget!!!
