Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the excited attention of an entire country. Now, the most notorious couple of the twentieth century takes on a whole new adventure: the stage.
BONNIE AND CLYDE is an exciting, cutting-edge musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel, bluegrass and rockabilly music. Our production will feature a large ensemble cast, spectacular scenic design, rocking live orchestra, and a recreation of the infamous Bonnie & Clyde 1934 Ford V8 death car!

A teenage girl, too smart and inquisitive for her own good, starts to publish a blog about her new tenant-in-common apartment building. Living in the cottage with her dad in the back, she enjoys a clear view of the building’s rear windows. From her room, she captures her neighbors’ private moments on her cell phone and publishes them online, with commentary. At first, she thinks she’s just writing for herself — but when strange, menacing events begin to take place at her home, it becomes evident that her journal isn’t going unnoticed. Someone is reading, someone is watching, and everyone is in danger.

Broadway’s legendary musical has been specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one the greatest musicals ever written. *Special Saturday Gala performance celebrating the 60th Anniversary of McCallum Fine Arts Academy.

April 3rd-6th
Fine Arts Theatre

Jean-Francois Millet, a young painter of genius, is in love with Marie Leroux but in debt to a villainous picture-dealer, Bastien Andre. Andre forecloses on Millet, threatening debtor’s prison unless Marie marries him. Millet realizes that the only way he can pay his debts and keep Marie from marrying Andre is to die, as it is only dead painters who achieve fame and fortune. Millet fakes his death and prospers, all the while passing himself off as his own sister, the Widow Tillou. Now a rich “widow,” he must find a way to get out of a dress, return to life, and marry Marie.
An elaborate madcap comedy that registers high on the mirth meter and reaches especially giddy comic heights!

May 15th-18th
Fine Arts Theatre

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4? 8? 10? 12?), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure! The 39 Steps was Broadway’s longest running comedy, and played its 500th performance on Broadway, May 19th, 2009!
