ADDED FULL PRODUCTIONS:

Boys Will Be Boys
Book and lyrics by Joe Miloscia; music by Kenneth Kacmar
"Ishmael Gonzalez suffers from Gay-D.D., a condition that renders gay men unable to stay focused on any trend for more than a few weeks. Before you can say 'Barney's Warehouse Sale,' Ishmael's friends put on a charity revue exposing themselves and their views on loves won and lost (and borrowed!), in this outrageous and comic romp!"

God’s Country
Book and lyrics by Erik Johnke; music by Elaine Chelton
"Shattered by his mother's death and the revelation that he is adopted and Irish, wealthy Englishman James Watson travels to America in 1871 to find his birth mother. God’s Country follows one man's epic journey to learn his true identity, with sweeping melodies and plenty of Irish spirit."



The Pirates of Finance
Book and lyrics by Charles Veley; music by Arthur Sullivan
"When musical conductor Frederick Freemarket inherits his uncle's Wall Street investment company, he dreams of rescuing the world from economic doldrums. The company is worth twelve billion dollars – what could possibly go wrong? But golden dreams can hold hidden surprises, especially on Wall Street: love blossoms, tension mounts and spirits rise to a height of irrational exuberance that few can scale, before – in a classic Gilbert & Sullivan topsy-turvy twist – all ends in perfect harmony."
