“Matilda” (July 9-18, 2020) — From the marvelous mind of Roald Dahl comes the story of a most unlikely heroine.

Based on the beloved book and movie, this musical will show audiences of all ages that everyone has the power to change their story.

“The Hound of the Baskervilles” (July 30-Aug. 2, 2020) — When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes and Watson are summoned to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles. This sublimely funny adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes story is sure to have you howling of laughter.

“Dino! An Evening with Dean Martin” (Aug. 20-23) — When a severe blizzard blankets the East Coast, Dino’s band gets stuck out of town. Rather than disappoint his fans, Dean Martin brings us an intimate evening filled with personal stories and classic songs including, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,” “Everybody Loves Somebody,” “That’s Amore” and more. For a short while, the man behind the legend reveals the humor, warmth and casual cool that marked his rise from his Italian-only speaking immigrant childhood to become one of the biggest legends in entertainment.
