From the dark musings of Edgar Allan Poe, comes a new musical like no other. THE RAVEN takes us to the world before the poem and ends with the tragic scene penned by Poe's own hand. Set in 1825, we enter a time where death reigns free and high society and poverty collide. Only one is prophesized to end the curse; and Edgar, forced to work for Death, must fight for the life of the one he loves. With a cast of unforgettable characters and an amazing score of dynamic and extraordinary songs, comes a tale of danger and passion, where death and life collide and true love stands between destiny and life itself.

List and learn! It is with all necessary and appropriate pomp, Ducal and otherwise, that we announce, pronounce and soundly declare, our final show of the season will be: Gilbert and Sullivan’s, The Gondoliers! This 12th collaborative operetta by the beloved pair is set in Venice and is rife with Nobility, mistaken identities, Royalty, young lovers in love with and married to the wrong people, commoners, wit, patter, a Cachucha and of course, Rapture! You may have to wait until the last show of our season, but there will always be Rapture! To bookend our 18th season, we are happy to host The Gondoliers once more. We, as in the common pronoun used when there is more than one of us, or We, the Royal We…we’re not sure anymore, but we are sure you’ll enjoy The Gondoliers!
The king of Barataria has died, and the kingdom now belongs to his son. However, his son was spirited away as a very young child, and placed in the care of a gondolier in Venice. Unfortunately, the gondolier died without reveling which of his two boys was the king, and both boys have just become married to their sweethearts. So both boys are sent to Barataria to rule jointly until the true king is sorted out.
To further muddy the plot, the young king, before being spirited away, was married by proxy to the daughter of the Duke of Plaza-Toro. She comes to Venice, with her parents, to claim her husband, and the queenship. She does so reluctantly, however, as her heart really belongs to her father's drummer. And it all sorts itself out in two acts.

Magic rings, magic lamps and secret caves: Open Sesame!
