In the era of Rolodexes and rotary phones, every day feels like Monday with overtime for the secretaries under smarmy, pompous boss Franklin Hart. Widowed working mom Violet is passed over for promotions because she isn't "one of the boys." Dictation often turns into unwelcome flirtation for "backwoods Barbie" Doralee, who wants no part of Hart – despite office gossip. New girl Judy's husband recently left her for his secretary, and the divorce has forced her into the workplace. United by their contempt for Hart, the three women share gleeful fantasies about his demise – then, after an extra-productive coffee break, devise a plan for revenge that lends new meaning to "upper management." Take a memo: It may be a man's world, but it's a woman's office. Based on the 1980 hit movie, this outrageously funny ode to female friendship and empowerment is now a hilarious, high-energy musical. Laughter and toe-tapping songs are on the agenda!

Despite disturbing news of a recent local murder with a haunting history, four guests and their hosts at Monkswell Manor are enjoying a winter weekend in the English countryside – until an unexpected stranger appears and everyone is trapped by a snowstorm. When another victim is found, with the words "Three Blind Mice" left as a clue, it becomes clear that one of the stranded seven is a murderer. As dark secrets are exposed, the uneasy guests and their frightened hosts realize that everyone is in danger and no one is above suspicion – or who they seem to be. And when the tragic tale behind the first murder and the unknown killer's plot for revenge are revealed, the trap is set for a shocking twist ending. This classic whodunit by the Queen of Crime opened in 1952 in London's West End and has been thrilling audiences ever since as the world's longest-running play.

"Try to remember…" In this enchanting musical, mysterious narrator El Gallo asks audiences to recall the tender Septembers of their youth and follow him into a fantastical world of moonlight, magic, and romantic charm. Starry-eyed young lovers Matt and Luisa live side by side, separated by a wall built by their feuding fathers – who are actually old friends, but have pretended to be enemies to unite their children. The forbidden lovers meet in secret until the elaborate scheme is exposed, and what seemed magical in a moonlit garden loses its allure by the harsh light of day. Matt longs for adventure, while dreamy Luisa is led astray by a handsome bandit – but dreams prove dangerous for the disillusioned young lovers as a new journey begins. Intimate and imaginative, this enduring fable transcends time with its poetic simplicity and classic songs like "Soon It's Gonna Rain" and "Try to Remember." You'll never forget this lovely, lyrical tale.

Once upon a time, a hideous green ogre named Shrek lived all alone in a secluded swamp – until all the storybook characters of the kingdom are banished there by the evil little Lord Farquaad, spoiling his swampy solitude.
