Arguably Jane Austen's most famous work, Pride and Prejudice is beautifully adapted for the stage. The drama of high Victorian society married with witty humor leaves audiences swooning for the most riveting courtship in theatrical history. Before the merriment of marriage can begin, however, the proud Elizabeth Bennet must navigate her way around a trffling mother, inpestuous sisters and completely unsuitable suitors. Adding to the endless complications, her would-be match, Mr Darcy has some flaws of his own to overcome. In the end, true love blossoms when pride and prejudice meet.

Neil Simon's classic play, Plaza Suite, answers the age old question: What if these walls could talk? Wonder no longer, and pull up a chair as a simple hotel room becomes so much more. Reflecting the highs and lows of the human experience all seen through the common lens of a single hotel room suite. From the tragic heartbreak of a failing marriage, to mildly audacious seduction and the hilarity of wedding day jitters, the story of three couples will speak to the heart.

Crazy for You is more than the run-of-the-mill slapstick, romantic-comedy musical. Some of the Gershwins' most timeless and memorable musical triumphs grace the stage in this one of a kind musical.

Equally mesmerizing is the unforgettable tune, "They Can't Take that Away from Me" as we see Bobby lamenting his star-crossed romance. Come and experience these classics and the many other musical delights that mingle together to tell the timeless story of boy meets girl.

Part classic murder mystery and part irreverent comedy, the Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 leaves audiences guffawing and gasping for air. Imagine an ill-fated team of theatrical producers trapped in a creepy mansion replete with secret passages and a determined villain, known as 'The Slasher'. The dim-witted police inspector does little to solve the mystery as the body count rises, and adds oh-so-much levity to the gruesome scene. Heritage Theater invites all to laugh themselves silly as our cast of players unmasks the Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.
