Worlds of Wonder | Magic & Wonder | January 15 - October 31

Join Brett and his cast as they captivate with ​more large illusions, more circus arts, and more dynamic variety than ever before while reminding audiences of the true magic that exists all around us.

Ryan & Friends | Bird-in-Hand Stage | April 2 - October 9
Your whole family will be rolling in the aisles when Ryan takes the stage with a colorful cast of friends that includes Jeffrey, a witty 8-year-old kid and self-proclaimed star of the show; teenager Tiffany, who’s taken with worldly goods; Harold and Irene, who have way more opinions than your average grandparents; and, of course, Ardy the Skunk, who has lots of common “scents” and is always a hit with young and old alike. Expect songs, snappy comebacks and a whole lot of wisdom from an entertaining bunch of dummies.

Beauty and the Beast | Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre | June 3 - July 31
Be our guest in the enchanted world of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast with Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will be broken, and he will be transformed into his former self…but time is running out!

Grumpy Old Men: The Musical | Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre | August 5 - September 4
The story of two aging men, Max and John, neighbors who have been feuding most of their lives. They are re-united in friendship through the love and compassion of their new neighbor across the street, the beautiful, eccentric and charming Ariel. Don’t miss this laugh-out-loud story of family, friendship, love and romance in a fresh new musical that’s guaranteed to delight!

Together We Celebrate | Fulton Theatre | July 6 - August 8
A spectacular evening to rejoice in the return of the arts, LIVE on the Fulton stage! The songbook of Broadway bursts with one energizing song after another. This concert of favorites will bring together the community that has allowed us to make it to the other side. Now it’s time to CELEBRATE!

Fun Home | Fulton Theatre | September 9 - October 24
Fun Home is based on the real life story of cartoonist Alison Bechdel. Alison’s creative imagination becomes real as she recalls how her families’ dysfunctional dynamic upbringing shaped who she has become. Maple Avenue has never looked so familiar and yet unrecognizable as we flip through the sketchbooks of her life’s most pivotal moments; preadolescents, college years, and where she finds herself today. This achingly beautiful portrait of family examines our relationships within, and how family holds the keys to our successes, and ultimately they hold the keys to our hearts.

Soon | Prima Theatre | October 1-23
Charlie has taken to her couch as the apocalypse nears with these few favorite things. Be the first back at Prima Theatre and experience SOON, a new, humorous, witty, and poignant postmodern musical, reminding us of the importance of fully embracing life - even with the end in sight.
