2018 Season

Ragtime

Show Dates: 01/19/2018 - 02/24/2018

In the current political climate of our country, the timeless message of Tony award-winning Ragtime is essential because it exemplifies the important role that ethnic diversity plays in the American experience. The musical follows three families in their pursuit of the American dream in the cultural “melting pot” of New York during the turn of the century. Over the course of the show, the worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and his motherless daughter, and an African American ragtime musician intertwine, leading them all to make discoveries about themselves and each other. With one of the largest casts ever on the Candlelight stage, this poignant musical by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (My Favorite Year, Anastasia, Seussical) is sure to remind audiences what makes our country so great.

Rated PG-13
Added Thursday Performance on February 22.

In this Broadway classic with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, Annie Oakley starts from humble beginnings, selling the game she hunts to support her little brother and sisters. With such impressive ability as a marksman she garners the attention of Col. Buffalo Bill, the man in charge of the famous Wild West Show. He persuades her to join the show and soon she falls in love with its star, shooting ace Frank Butler. But when Frank sees that she is becoming a bigger star than him, his bruised male ego leads him to take his act to another rival show, and Annie learns that “You Can’t Get A Man With A Gun”. The finale has the two sharpshooters and two Wild West shows merging and proving that “There’s No Business Like Show Business”

Singin' in the Rain

Show Dates: 04/20/2018 - 06/02/2018

Come and get “happy again” with our production of Singin’ in the Rain, a musical adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name. This wonderful story is set in Hollywood, at a time in which sound was first being included in professional motion pictures. To keep up with the quickly changing industry, Monumental Studios changes a silent film they were planning to make into a musical film. This creates an issue when they realize their star’s voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard! Through the trials and tribulations of making their movie the story reveals important questions about what it means to act, how credits are distributed, and what it means to get a fair shake in the movie business. Singin’ in the Rain also includes some of the best loved comedy routines, dance numbers, and love songs ever written, including “Good Mornin’”, “Make ‘em Laugh”, and of course, “Singin’ in the Rain”.

Bonnie & Clyde

Show Dates: 09/14/2018 - 10/13/2018

While the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow’s deadly relationship is a part of Americana, this musical explores a more romantic perspective than the usual shoot-‘em up. In Depression-era Texas, the couple meets over Bonnie’s broken-down car. At this time in the story Bonnie is a waitress with aspirations to act in film, and Clyde Barrow just broke out of prison with his brother Buck. As two Texans with unbridled imagination, they begin robbing banks to make their dreams of fame come true. But as the duo become wanted fugitives, and their crimes escalate from robbery to murder, they find their way to the top of the nation’s list of public enemies. Bonnie & Clyde is a thrilling and sexy musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music to a perfect, crowd-pleasing effect. This Tony-nominated musical from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Dracula, Civil War) is surely not one to be missed.

The daughter of the family, Wednesday, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready to live a different life than that of her family. After falling in love with a normal boy from Ohio, she invites him and his family over to the Addams’ household.
