Private Lives is widely regarded as one of the most sophisticated and entertaining comedies ever written.  Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite their old spark and impulsively run off with each other.  After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger.  This uniquely humorous classic has seen numerous successful runs on Broadway and in London with a roster of stars including Coward himself, Laurence Olivier, Tallulah Bankhead, Gertrude Lawrence, Tammy Grimes, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!  This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for theatre across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!
