9 to 5: The Musical
March 1 -17
Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton | Book by Patricia Resnick
Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do -- even in a man's world. Set in the late 1970s, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and taking care of business.
Love, Loss and What I Wore

A woman's wardrobe often serves as the way she remembers her life, and every woman will ap- preciate the sweet and often saucy way the women of Love, Loss and What I Wore use cloth- ing to tell the stories of their lives. This charming and poignant comedy, told through a series of
stories, delivers lots of laughs and a few tears as it takes you on a moving and often hilarious journey through the lives of women, told through the clothing and accessories that trigger im- portant memories.

Seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe, it
is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 28th year. Set against the backdrop of
19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequit- ed love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's young daughter, Co-
sette, their lives change forever. Featuring the songs "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him
Home", "One Day More" and "On My Own" - Les Misérables is an epic classic!

By Paul Slade Smith
Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling
mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door,
two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's being videotaped, who's taken the
money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.

It's a Wonderful Life
Nov 29 – Dec 8
Based on the Frank Capra film
In our American culture, It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A
Christmas Carol. The story of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls,
whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty,
follows his journey with a guardian angel who descends on Christmas Eve to save him from des- pair and to remind him by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born that his has been, after all, a wonderful life.
