Forever Plaid
Fall Girlfriends GetawayApril 13 May 22, 2016
Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory.  Once upon a time, there were four guys who discovered 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 become Forever Plaid.  Originally produced on the Joseph Stein Stage in 2006, Forever Plaid  is a guaranteed smash with its 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, including “Three Coins in a Fountain,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Chain Gang,” “Heart and Soul,” and “Rags to Riches.”

The Miracle Worker
Fall Girlfriends GetawayOctober 19 - November 6, 2016
Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller.  The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge.  Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such.  Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.  The play premiered on Broadway in 1959, and ran for over 700 performances on its way to four Tony Awards, including Best Play, Direction (Arthur Penn), Actress (Bancroft), and Stage Technician (John Walters).
