PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES
Jun 13 - Jul 27 at East Sonora
The 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves from critics and audiences across the country, on and off-Broadway (and in three record-breaking runs at Sierra Rep). With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils. "It doesn't merely celebrate the value of friendship and life's simple pleasures, it embodies them." -- New York Times (Rated PG)

THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Jul 11 - Aug 31 at Fallon House
Rejoice in The Sound of Music, very possibly the most glorious musical ever created. Based on the true story of the Von Trapp family in Austria, this show has it all - an irrepressible heroine who finds her calling, lonely children who find a mother, an aloof Naval officer who finds a wife, and a united family who find courage in one another as they escape the approaching evil of the Third Reich. Featuring the beloved songs "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," and "Edelweiss." "It is uplifting theatre, appealing successfully and without apology to the better side of our natures." -- Philadelphia Enquirer (Rated PG)

ALL MY SONS
Aug 29 - Sep 21 at East Sonora
Winner of the Drama Critics' Award for Best New Play in 1947 and multiple Tony Award-winner, All My Sons established Arthur Miller as a leading voice in the American theatre. All My Sons introduced themes that thread through Miller's work as a whole: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. In this classic American drama, Joe Keller and Steve Deever-partners in a manufacturing plant during World War II-turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. They were sent to prison but Keller was exonerated and went on to have a successful business. In a work of tremendous power, a love affair between Keller's son and Deever's daughter, the bitterness of George Deever, and the reaction of a son to his father's guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity. "...the quality of its writing hasn't tarnished, its moral issues haven't aged, and its tragic events can still pack a wallop." Los Angeles Times (Rated PG-13)

MARK TWAIN'S A MURDER, A MYSTERY & A MARRIAGE
Sep 26 - Oct 26 at Fallon House
Heroes! Heroines! Villains! Great tunes, goofy jokes, some hot fiddlin', and a whole lot of singin' and dancin'. The zany small town of Deer Lick, Missouri is thrown into frenzy when a mysterious visitor arrives. A young romance is put to the test and a town patriarch is murdered. Was it the local store clerk with a vendetta or the suave Frenchman? Small town antics, homespun humor and Bluegrass melodies build to an adventure of clues. Will Mary marry the wrong guy? Or will love and truth save the day? Only the wit, wisdom and satirical humor of Mark Twain could answer these questions. "Captures the spirit... of Twain's lively essence." -- New York Times "...a high-spirited evening for the entire family...a bouncy bluegrass score." -Talkin' Broadway (Rated PG)

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Oct 24 - Nov 23 at East Sonora
The 25TH Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. You'll find yourself rooting along while they learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser."It's spelled W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L! You'll have the time of your life!" --Wall Street Journal (Rated PG-13)

SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS
Nov 14 - Dec 21 at Fallon House
It's Christmas Eve in 1941. The Depression is coming to a close, but 18 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the threat of war has just begun. The Sanctified Sanders Family Singers are heading up the annual Christmas celebration at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, but they are about to say a bittersweet goodbye to their only son, who is shipping out with the Marine Corps. Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe (who works part-time at the local pickle plant) and the Sanders family attempt to raise the spirits of their faithful flock (the audience!) in a rousing, hilarious and heart-warming Christmas gospel sing-along of cherished holiday hymns and carols. There's Uncle Stanley; the family's patriarch, Burl, and his Scripture-quoting wife, Vera; the twins Dennis and Denise and their sister June (she doesn't sing, she signs). "...one of the best Christmas shows that I have ever seen... an inspiring musical that is as smart as it is heartwarming". - Chicago Theatre Beat (Rated G)
