- "She Loves Me," Oct. 3-4 and 7-11 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. It is love at first "fight" in this charming Tony Award-winning musical set in 1930s-era Budapest. Georg and Amalia, coworkers at Maraczek's Parfumerie, can't seem to get along. Little do they realize that each is the other's secret pen pal met through lonely hearts ads.
- "Wit," November 7-8 and 11-15 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. While suffering devastating side effects from experimental cancer treatments, uncompromising English Professor, Vivian Bearing, reflects on significant life events. Slowly she realizes that human compassion trumps intellectual wit. In addition, a special community night panel is scheduled for Wednesday, November 12, which will address the topic of "Empathy – Can We Measure It?" and will feature a diverse set of panelists from the healthcare industry.
- "Damn Yankees," Feb. 20-21 and 24-28 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. This 'devilishly clever' Tony Award-winning musical features middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd who would give anything to help the hapless Washington Senators beat the Yew York Yankees – even his soul!

Moving between the 1800's and the present, Tom Stoppard offers a compelling blend of logic, emotion and heartache in this theatrical tour de force.
