For aspiring performers, it’s all about their one big break. The moment when fate calls their name and the spotlight finally lands on their mark. In 42nd Street, the name fate calls is Peggy Sawyer, a talented young tap dancer from Allentown, Pennsylvania. After she follows the stars in her eyes and moves to New York City, Peggy gets noticed by a famous director and lands a chorus role in a brand new show. But when the lead gets injured, they scramble for a new lead star and the show is on the line. Enter Peggy Sawyer, the one talent bright enough to take on the leading role. Her rise to stardom is what Broadway dreams are made of. 42nd Street leaves it all on the stage with show-stopping tap dances and high energy ensemble numbers set to audience favourites like “Lullaby of Broadway” and “We’re in the Money”.

Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Broadway Version)
Presented by Clarkson Music Theatre
Join Cinderella and her Prince Topher in this revised classic. Set in a fairy land with giants, dragons and magic, our tale explores the idea of being true to yourself and the notion that we can all rescue ourselves if we think we can. Life’s journey is filled with the promise of possibility. As Fairy Godmother says: “Go to the ball. In the name of every girl who has ever wished to go to a ball in a beautiful dress. In the name of every girl who has ever wanted to change the world she lived in. Go… with the promise of possibility.” For nothing is “impossible”. Favourite melodies include: “Impossible”, “In My Own Little Corner”, “Ten Minutes Ago”.

Miss Honey begins not only to recognize, but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. However, the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Presented by City Centre Musical Productions
Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel.
The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There”, observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
