2015-2016 Broadway Entertainment Series

Beauty and the Beast: Monday & Tuesday, September 21-22, 2015
Disney's Beauty and the Beast features the animated film's Academy Award®-winning score with music by Alan Menken. Beauty and the Beast is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self.

Bullets over Broadway: Thursday, November 19, 2015
Hailed by Time Magazine as, "Musical Theatre Gold," Bullets Over Broadway is the hilarious musical comedy about the making of a Broadway show. Written by Woody Allen, Bullets over Broadway is the story of a young playwright who, in desperate need of financial backing for his next show, accepts an offer he can't refuse from a mobster looking to please his showgirl girlfriend.

The Producers: Wednesday, January 6, 2016
A scheming producer and his mousy accountant aim to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in Mel Brooks' laugh-out-loud spectacle. Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.

42nd Street: Monday, February 1, 2016
The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, 42nd Street is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story. 42nd Street tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the star breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star.

Fantasia Live: Tuesday, March 1, 2016
