In the Mood,
a 1940s musical revue
Monday, November 14, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.
Much more than a concert, "In the Mood, a 1940s musical revue," is a retro event that features the "In the Mood" singers and dancers along with the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra. The music and the arrangements are as authentic as it gets. This was a time when all of America was listening and dancing to the same kind of music. The combination of up-tempo big band instrumentals and intimate, romantic ballads set the mood for a future filled with promise, hope and prosperity. "In the Mood" has been touring the US since 1994, has visited Europe and Canada, and in 1997, the band and singers were selected to be part of the entertainment for the 53rd Presidential Inauguration Ball for President and Mrs. Clinton. www.inthemoodlive.com

Neil Berg’s 102 Years of Broadway
Wednesday, December 7, 2011 – 7:30 p.m.
How about a holiday gift of great Broadway music for you and the whole family! Because 100 and 101 years weren’t enough to cover all of the Broadway music we love to hear, we are excited to bring you "Neil Berg’s 102 Years of Broadway." This revue will again feature a dazzling cast of Broadway performers accompanied by an all-star New York band and will showcase more of the greatest songs from the hit musicals of the century. Lyrical treasures such as "Oklahoma" and "Annie Get Your Gun" will be featured, as well as more recent Broadway fare, such as "Wicked" and "Rock of Ages." Neil Berg is the composer/lyricist of the hit off-Broadway musical "The Prince and the Pauper," which ran for two years at the Lamb’s Theater in New York City. His newest musical based on "Grumpy Old Men" will begin previews this year.  www.neilberg.com

Damn Yankees
Wednesday, January 18, 2012 – 7:30 p.m.
Faust, fly balls, and devilishly good fun all meet at the home plate of "Damn Yankees." Joe Boyd, a 1950s middle-aged baseball fanatic, sells his soul to the Devil, Mr. Applegate, for "one good long ball hitter" for his favorite team, the Washington Senators. Mr. Applegate turns him into 22-year-old sports superstar, Joe Hardy. He leaves his wife behind and as Joe Hardy he transforms the hapless Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life (and wife) he left at home. With the help of a handy escape clause and a guilt-ridden temptress name Lola, Joe outsmarts the Devil, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series. www.gurtmanandmurtha.com/damnyankees/damnyankees.htm.

Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show
Thursday, May 10, 2012 – 7:30 p.m.
