2017 Season

Jesus Christ Superstar

Show Dates: 03/31/2017 - 04/29/2017

Equal parts modern allegory and fun historic retelling, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Jesus Christ Superstar has something for everyone. The story of Christ’s last 7 days is seen through a lens of the late 60’s, comparing his meteoric rise to that of contemporary celebrities. Borrowing from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the story follows the Roman Empire’s increasing distrust of Jesus and his following.  When Judas betrays Jesus to the Roman Empire, Jesus and his followers face the ultimate test of their belief.  Driven by a stirring score, Jesus Christ Superstar runs the gamut of emotion, with satirical humor, thought-provoking edge, and emotional intensity.

Thursday evening performance only available on April 27; contains mild adult situations. 
$25 Show Only preview Friday, March 31.

Show Dates: 09/15/2017 - 10/14/2017

Frank Sinatra once said that the secret of success was to sing great songs. With the musical tribute My Way the Candlelight plans to bring these same songs to the stage. Rather than attempting to impersonate a legend, My Way smartly features a cast of two men and two women singing nearly 50 songs popularized by Sinatra. Accompanied by a live band, the singers will perform such songs as “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Love and Marriage”, “I Get a Kick Out of You” and more. So come and join us for a celebration of Sinatra’s style, his era, and some of the 20th century’s most enduring tunes.

Set in the late 1970s, 9 to 5 was written based on a book by Patricia Resnick.

But when an opportunity allows the women to control the office, they change their oppressive workplace into a better environment. With the music and lyrics written by Dolly Parton, this laugh-out-loud story of friendship and retribution is sure to get some of its hit songs stuck in your head.
