One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
November 3-12, 2017
Boisterous, ribald and ultimately shattering, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. When a brash new inmate arrives, the rigid program of the ward, headed by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched, is thrown up for grabs. In a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a powerful exploration of both the beauty and the danger of being an original.
Hands on a Hardbody

10 Contestants! 4 Days! 1 Truck! Based on a true story and infused with a “bluesy country-rock vibe,” this hilarious musical follows 10 down-on-their-luck Texans; each desperate for a new lease on life. Armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, they’re determined to endure four sleepless days in the Texas heat for a chance to win a brand-new Nissan hardbody truck. All they have to do is fight to keep at least one hand on the truck and they will drive away with their American Dream. Last one standing wins!

Honey. It’s the 1980s. In Louisiana. At Truvy’s beauty shop — motto: “There is no such thing as natural beauty” — the women are all sass and brass. Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to gossip and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are about to be tested when M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby face a life-changing event. Infused with heart and humor, Steel Magnolias is a hilarious story of love, loss, and enduring friendship.
