October 12 — November 2, 2019

Part of the Phil & Colleen Morey/Donald & Barbara Newman Cabaret Series

In the tradition of last year's Cabaret Musical, FORBIDDEN BROADWAY'S GREATEST HITS, we're presenting a small musical in the Premier Cabaret for a limited run: DISENCHANTED!  Quirky, funny and perfect for an evening of musical theatre that is large in hilarity, but smaller in size!

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?!  Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come to life to set the record straight. A musical comedy satire that gives fairy tales the bird, DISENCHANTED! features Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Hua Mulan, The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas and more! (It also features adult themes, and mature situations. It is a satire and it is funny…for grown-ups.)

Onstage at Shea's 710 Theatre

December 5 — December 22, 2019

MusicalFare's smash-hit production by Tom Dudzick is back...but this time on the Shea's 710 Theatre stage! 

The Pazinskis, 4 kids and 2 parents living over a saloon in 1959 lower-middle class Buffalo, are not having their usual merry Christmas. Dad is going through a mid-life depression and refuses to buy a Christmas tree. Sister Clarissa is threatening to expel 12-year-old Rudy for performing a blasphemous one-man Nativity Scene where he plays all the characters as Hollywood celebrities. Mom wants the happy man she married returned to her, and the two teenagers, sensing their parents’ discord, are worried that this may be their last Christmas together as a whole family. In earthy, quirky Pazinski fashion, with comic songs and dream sequences, they all come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be a family on this most stressful of holidays.
