A Tony and Pulitzer-winning Rock Musical on the power mental illness has in our families
 

Considered one of the best musicals of the 21st Century, Next to Normal, explores the complexities of a seemingly normal household. As a mother struggles with the crippling effects of Bipolar Disorder and family trauma, this 3 time Tony award-winning show pries into the suburban underbelly and dives into a family’s dark secrets. Diana Goodman and her family appear to neighbors as another family on a cookie-cutter block but family tragedies, medication, and doctors visits prioritize the Goodman’s time. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it was hailed as “a powerful rock musical that grapples with mental illness in a suburban family and expands the scope of subject matter for musicals.”
 

“No show on Broadway right now makes as direct a grab for the heart — or wrings it as
thoroughly — as Next to Normal does.” - The New York Times

Truth, lies, and consequences...how one mistake destroys a community.
 

An essential American classic and Tony award-winning play, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, makes it’s way to The Flowertown Players’ stage this October. Set in 1692 in the Puritan colony of Massachusetts signs of witchcraft begin to surface and suspicion falls on Ms. Abigail Williams. Successful in her malevolent attempt to convince the court that she and her friends were merely dancing in the woods, she moves to sway suspicion off of herself and onto other villagers. Soon hysteria has bewitched the town of Salem as one after another the villagers are accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death. Havoc rains down on the Puritan town as Abigail’s selfish behavior manipulates those around her to rule with fear and violence.
 

“The Crucible has a diverse and spectacular assortment of moments that make the flesh creep.” - The New York Times

School of Rock the Musical will rock Summerville and further its mission to "teach rock 'n' roll to the world!" Based on the popular film of the same name, this hilarious rock romp follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rocker who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school and discovers his vehicle to rock stardom in the form of straight -A fifth grade musical prodigies. Andrew Lloyd Webber (Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar) composes 14 new songs to accompany this madcap rock and roll adventure that pits Dewey and his pint-sized rock band against parents and school faculty in order to compete in the coveted Battle of the Bands!

 

"In the meantime, family audiences should be grateful for a Lloyd Webber show that only wants to have fun and hopes that you do, too." - NY Times 

 

School of Rock, which is an ideal family show, works for a couple of dominant reasons. One is that the material really fits a musical. And the other is that the book to the show is, as screen-to-stage musicals go, uncommonly witty." - Chicago Tribune

A Deep-Fried Southern Comedy with Texas Sized Errors

This fast-paced Southern-fried comedy will leave you wondering why your family reunions can’t be this much fun! The Verdeen Cousins have picked the worst time to throw their family reunion — July in Texas tornado season. And although one is on the verve of a nervous breakdown after crashing her minivan through her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide, one is preoccupied with winning the affection of the new widower, and one is
debating on whether she should declare her long-lost trucker husband dead, they are determined to pull off this year’s reunion. Things begin to spiral out of control and hilarity ensues as the eccentric Verdeens family arrives all the while wondering who has made the best red velvet cake.

 

“For a jamboree or some genuine Southern-fried laughs…“The Red Velvet Cake War” does the trick.” - Roanoke Times
