Upcoming Shows & Events

The 39 Steps is a MUST SEE fast paced, fun comedy with many twists and turns and a fabulous display of physical comedy. It is a theatrical parody staging of the famous 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film that involves murder, intrigue, espionage, and romance. Set in 1935 in London and Scotland, the style is playful satire.

Show Dates:



The story of the orphan Annie with all those hit numbers such as 'Tomorrow', 'Hard Knock Life', 'NYC', 'Never Fully Dressed without a Smile' and more. As she escapes the grips of time honoured villain Miss Hannigan, she finds a new deal and a new family! The perfect pick me up!
