Double Trouble

 

Double Trouble

Set in Hollywood in the early 1940s, the show features Jimmy & Bobby Martin, a pair of song-writing brothers summoned to a major movie studio and given the golden opportunity to write a song for the movies…on the double. Their efforts are interrupted by wacky characters including the boorish studio boss, an ancient sound engineer, an effete director, a sleazy agent and a buxom, scheming screen siren - all played by the same two singing, dancing, piano-playing actors in a rambunctious musical tour-de-farce written by Bob and Jim Walton.

Ain’t Misbehavin’

 

Ain’t Misbehavin’

The soul of 1930's Harlem is captured in this finger-snapping revue. Thomas “Fats” Waller was an iconic musical force, known for his exuberant personality, energetic stride-piano playing, infectious humor and jumping beat. Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes his good-time joie-de-vivre as a versatile cast sings, dances and carries on to the songs he made famous: Jitterbug Waltz, This Joint Is Jumpin’, Your Feets Too Big, Spreadin’ Rhythm Around, Keepin’ Out of Mischief Now, Honeysuckle Rose and, of course, Ain’t Misbehavin’. Sassy, silly, sultry and with moments of devastating beauty.

Backwards In High Heels

 

Backwards In High Heels

A striking show about Rogue Valley former resident Ginger Rogers who famously said that she did everything Fred Astaire did but “backwards and in high heels”. Best known for her partnership with Astaire, Ginger had a successful Hollywood career including dramatic roles as well. The show follows her from her teen years in vaudeville to her Oscar win for 1940 film Kittly Foyle. Backwards In High Heels combines cherished standards with new original songs, a compelling play, and many stunning dance sequences to tell Ginger’s fascinating story.

It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play

 

It’s A Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play

Five actors, supported by clever sound effects and a piano present the classic holiday drama in a fresh and engaging way that makes us discover it anew. As a New York Times review said: “Dear devoted fans of a certain 1946 Frank Capra holiday movie: Relax. This live radio play production has done absolutely no harm to the original. In fact, it has added another layer of nostalgia...it’s easy for the audience to get caught up in the fun of creating reality from imagination and obvious artifice.” Step back in time to the golden age of radio and become the studio audience for this delightfully inventive re-telling of George Bailey’s heart-warming story.
