The beloved family musical Annie returns to Paper Mill Playhouse just in time for the holidays. Little orphan Annie is taken from her orphanage — and the clutches of cruel Miss Hannigan — to stay at billionaire Oliver Warbucks' mansion for the holidays. When Annie wins the hearts of Warbucks and his staff, they set out on an epic mission to find Annie's parents. Winner of the Tony Award for best musical, Annie includes such unforgettable songs as "It's the Hard-Knock Life," "Easy Street," "A New Deal for Christmas," and "Tomorrow," that eternal anthem of optimism.
Part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart, this laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the pervert), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It's hard to say what exact age is right to see Avenue Q - parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level.
Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum selling recording artist Bruno Mars returns to The Rock.

She made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in The Merry Widow with Renée Fleming last year, and regularly appears in film and on television.
From the director-choreographer of Kinky Boots comes the incredible true story of 10 ordinary seniors with extraordinary dreams who audition to dance at halftime for a major basketball team. Only after making the cut do they learn that they won't be dancing tap, salsa, or swing — instead, they'll bring down the house with a style that is entirely new to them: hip-hop.
Take the uplifting journey with these dreamers — and the young coaches who inspire them along the way — as they battle self-doubt, stereotypes, and even one another for a chance to bust a move at center court in front of 20,000 screaming fans. Together they remind people that in life, when the odds are stacked against you and the challenges seem too great to overcome, it's not the end of the game — it's Half Time.

After shocking their wives by winning a high-profile jingle contest, they are catapulted out of Brooklyn and into the cutthroat world of Madison Avenue advertising, where they discover that their quest for the American Dream might cost them their friendship.

Park Players Productions, Inc. presents Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, in which classic fairy tales ("Cinderella," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Little Red Riding Hood," and others) are woven into the tale of a baker and his wife, who seek to break a spell of childlessness laid upon them by a crabby witch. In Act 1, a farcical, hilarious romp, the characters plot to get their wishes by whatever means necessary. All seems rosy until Act 2, when a furious giantess arrives by beanstalk to seek revenge on behalf of her husband, whom Jack killed. Events turn serious as the characters learn about community responsibilities, the penalties of greed, and the consequences of their actions.

Shakespeare's dark comedy could not be more resonant for our time. A play that offers no true villains or heroes, his Merchant of Venice presents a culture as complex and troubling as our own, in which the situations and questions posed ask us to examine the "quality of mercy" in myriad ways.

Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who he or she appears to be.

The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On the Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello Dolly!), and book writer Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
