A delightful comedy and poignant drama by Jon Robin Baitz
Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history—a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.
This iconic musical, which is loosely based on Puccini’s opera La Bohème, is set in the early 1990s and tells the story of one year in the life of roommates Mark and Roger and their friends, a group of bohemians, all facing the harsh poverty areas of New York City. While a former tragedy has made Roger numb to life, Mark tries to capture it through his attempts to make a film. In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and modern day life in one truly powerful story, where the main messages are friendship and loyalty.
This production contains mature subject matter and is therefore not recommended to anyone under the age of 14.
Book, music & lyrics by Jonathan Larson.

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
The inspirational account of 187 women who stitched seat covers for Ford cars in Dagenham and, in 1968, in defiance of their union, struck for equal pay. Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.
