Don and Michael are the odd couple of Little League. Long-time coach Don lives by the hardball conviction that "winning isn't everything it's the only thing," while new assistant coach Michael throws him a curve by insisting the game is all about kids having fun. Blue-collar, beer-guzzling, and all-American, Don threatens players (including his son, the team's star pitcher) that they'll find themselves in the spring musical if they don't play to win at all costs. Nerdy white-collar businessman Michael sips lattes and can barely put down his cell phone not to mention he's Canadian and doesn't fully understand baseball, but hopes to use it to bond with his klutzy kid. When these two polar-opposite personalities and principles clash, it's a whole new ballgame. Will the conflicting coaches ever become team players? With humor and heart, this comedy knocks it out of the park and hits a grand-slam home run!

Key: E = Evening 8:00 p.m., M = Matinee 2:00 p.m.

In rural 1960s Maryland, Li'l Bit is an outsider in her dysfunctional family. She feels an odd sense of kinship with Uncle Peck, who seems like a charming Southern gentleman until he turns predatory and molests his young niece during the first of many "driving lessons" in his Buick Riviera. The stream-of-consciousness narrative is told in fragmented flashbacks that reflect the disturbing memories in Li'l Bit's rearview mirror as she tries to put her troubled past behind her and move forward. As this intense Pulitzer Prize-winning drama deftly steers around dangerous curves, it's also shockingly funny, with sharp, unexpected turns into dark comedy as part of Li'l Bit's roadmap to healing. Stunning and sensitively told, this is the story of a woman who finds the courage to tell her secrets and take the wheel again, relearning the rules of the road along the way.

WARNING: THIS PLAY CONTAINS STRONG ADULT THEMES AND LANGUAGE WHICH MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL AUDIENCES.

Key: E = Evening 8:00 p.m., M = Matinee 2:00 p.m.

Former opera singers Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred reside in a home for retired professional musicians in England. When notorious diva and Reggie's ex-wife Jean arrives, the original three are eager for the four of them to perform their oncelegendary quartet from Rigoletto at the annual gala concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. But Jean, shaken by facing her own mortality and feeling too old and vulnerable to step into the spotlight again, refuses to sing or to resurrect former friendships. Will perfect harmony be restored, or have these faded stars already sung their swan song long ago? This bittersweet comedy is a lovely look at the strength of the human spirit and the struggle to triumph over the frailties of age. Both touching and wickedly funny, this warm and witty play hits a high note and strikes a chord that resonates long after the final curtain falls.

Key: E = Evening 8:00 p.m., M = Matinee 2:00 p.m.
