Charley's Aunt Banner

Charley's Aunt

Charley and Jack love Amy and Kitty. Amy is about to go away, and Charley thinks he may miss his opportunity to ask for her hand. Then he discovers that his aunt, a Brazilian woman he hardly knows, is coming for lunch. How fortuitous! Now the aunt can chaperone while the boys ask the girls to marry them. Naturally, things don't go as planned. Donna Lucia, the aunt, is late, and their friend, Lord Fancourt Babberley (Babbs) shows up in drag. He is convinced to pretend to be Donna Lucia, and a wild afternoon of mistaken identity, young love, old love, angry uncles, and one beautiful, exotic aunt ensues. In the end, just as it looks like Uncle Stephen is going to ruin everything, the real Donna Lucia steps in and graciously puts an end to the madness. All the lovers end up together and happy, except for Uncle Stephen, who was starting to fall for Babbs!

Phantom of the Opera Banner

Phantom of the Opera

These performances will be concert versions of The Phantom of the Opera, which encompass the entire show with minimal staging and a 28-piece orchestra. “Of course, there will be fog, lighting, masks and a chandelier,” says Dr. Darlene Romano, “but many visual aspects will be left to the imagination.”

When it first premiered on Broadway in 1988, the show garnered ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has since risen to become the longest-running show in Broadway history. It features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe, and book by Lloyd Webber and Stilgoe.
