Born Yesterday by Garson Kanin

The vulgar, egotistic junkman Harry Brock has come to a swanky hotel in Washington to make crooked deals with government big-wigs. He has brought with him the charming but dumb ex-chorus girl Billie, whose lack of social graces embarrasses even Harry. Billie must be taught some of the amenities, and a few basic bits of information. Directed by Rachel Klem.

Side By Side by Sondheim by Stephen Sondheim

Get ready to laugh, cry and fall in love with lyrics that are heartbreakingly true and music that captures the soaring emotions of a new generation. Simple and unpretentious, this Tony Award-winning musical is a perfect introduction to the work of this contemporary master and a must for die-hard fans. Directed by John McIlwee.

Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott

A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll which they are much interested in to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman's murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Directed by Mia Self.
