VALENTINE'S DAY WEEKEND
February 12 & 13, 2022

Saturday at 8 p.m.
Sunday at 3 p.m. 

The story of Vin Morrone (played by Vince Bandille), opens in the soda fountain of his youth, where he returns every morning for his daily egg cream. Today is different, however, as circumstances force him back in time to the moment he encountered Angela, his one true love, and the love he turned away from. But what if lightning were to strike again? What if life offered him a second chance to experience that true love? Would he have the courage to embrace it, or would he cut and run a second time? 

Whether you grew up on University Avenue in The Bronx, West Philly, or Cedar Falls, you'll recognize this humorous, heart-breaking, sometimes tough, otherwise tender, yet ultimately transcendent human journey Vin takes, navigating an age re-defining the mythos of the American male, and even the meaning of love itself.

Blend in the timeless music of the legendary LOU CHRISTIE, including Rhapsody in the Rain, Lightning Strikes, Two Faces Have I, The Gypsy Cried, plus many more, and you have 3 EGG CREAMS - A Rhapsody in the Rain!

All Tickets are $25.

This Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Based on the Universal Pictures cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.  

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.

Tickets are $22/adults and $20/seniors and students.

The legendary love triangle of King Arthur, Guenevere and Sir Lancelot leaps from the pages of T.H. White’s novel in Lerner and Loewe’s award-winning, soaring musical.

Borrowing from the Arthurian legends, Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot is the duo’s fantastical masterpiece which triumphed on Broadway in a legendary original production that lead to a film version, and numerous revivals in New York, London and across the globe. Its Original Broadway Cast Album topped the charts  for 60 weeks, with a rich score boasting such gems  as "If Ever I Would Leave You," “I Loved You Once in Silence,” "The Lusty Month of May," and of course, "Camelot."

An idealistic young King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, embodied by his Knights of The Round Table.  His Ideals, however are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with the young Knight, Lancelot and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance.

Tickets are $22/adults and $20/seniors and students.
