An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. 

Please be advised there will be NO LATE SEATING for this event.  Doors will lock promptly at 7:00pm.

Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role and Sarah's parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.  A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company, they became "Forever Plaid". On the way to their first big gig, the "Plaids" are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins....


Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950's.



This is our guest artist scholarship fundraiser performance presented by professional actors and technicians who have all agreed to donate their time and talents to support the arts in education.  This is our 4th Annual Broadway at the Mountain performance.  You will NOT want to miss this!

A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.  An irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift and sharp jabs to the funny bone, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying is a surefire hit!

Don Pedro and his soldiers are fresh from glorious campaigning and stop in to visit the governor of Messina, Leonato.  Just as a Shakespearean comedy would have it, Leonato happens to have a beautiful and even-tempered daughter, Hero, as well as a beautiful and sharp-tempered niece, Beatrice.  Within minutes of their arrival, the handsome young soldier Claudio falls head-over-heels for Hero, and the stubbornly avowed bachelor Benedick engages in a battle of wits with Beatrice.  The comedy is headed full-speed toward a happy ending when a plot-diverting conflict ensues.  Don Pedro's brother, Don John is a self-proclaimed villain who gets off on self-determined villainy, with the assistance of his loyal henchmen Conrad and Borachio.  Toss into the mix Messina's buffoonish chief of police with his equally qualified deputy, and you've got comedy!   This is an all-student designed show and is a 90 minute version of the play that will keep you laughing from beginning to end.
