Conceived by CNY Arts Center’s Nick Pike and directed by newcomer Rae Noone with Gina Holsopple as music director, the Tony Award Winning musicals have created staples within the world of theatre with songs that endure.

They are often the memorable tunes that stay with theater goers long after the curtains close.

Dessert theatre also allows actors and musicians a rare chance to perform music they may not otherwise get to do as these musicals can be very expensive and hard to mount full-scale productions.

Dessert is included in admission price.
