The Daytons are a progressive white couple in San Francisco. It is the tumultuous 1960s, and their daughter Joanna arrives home with Dr. John Prentice, an African American physician. They want the Daytons' blessing for their marriage — today.

Peter Rothstein's musical, All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, is based on real-life events during World War I. Remarkably, soldiers from France, England, and Germany called a battlefield truce on Christmas Day for a single night of camaraderie, music, and peace before both sides returned to fighting in the morning. Using the words and songs of the men who lived it, All Is Calm is a moving testament to the power of humanity in the midst of war's horrors.

Stanley Yelnats, a boy whose family is cursed, is sent to a juvenile detention camp for a crime he did not commit. He and the other boys at the camp are forced to dig large holes in the dirt every day, eventually realizing they are digging holes because the Warden is searching for something. Soon three separate stories coalesce to reveal why Stanley's family has a curse and what the Warden is looking for in this delightful version of the multi-award-winning novel by Louis Sachar.

This beloved 1979 play by Ernest Thompson tells the story of aging couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. During this particular summer, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé Billy Ray and his son Billy Ray Jr. The play explores the often turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage.
