THE SUNSHINE BOYS
A Comedy by NEIL SIMON
Directed by EDDIE TUCKER
Kings of comedy, Willie Clark and Al Lewis, aka The Sunshine Boys, haven’t spoken to each other in years. Once a fantastic duo, the two have since been locked in a feud for years. When CBS calls for the vaudevillian greats to be re-united for a nostalgic History of Comedy, past grudges resurface as they take center stage once more. Ageing ailments aside, can this legendary double-act overcome their differences for one last show? Old rivalry and vintage hilarity abound in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship.

The estate's many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the "Dreamers", spirits from Mary's past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden's compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

A CHRISTMAS STORY
A Holiday classic adapted by Philip Grecian.
Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story, © 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros. written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark; and on the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd.
Directed by ERIC ROSS
Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial
