Charlie and Doggy
and the Song at the Edge of the World

In his quiet, humble, seaside town, Charlie, a lonely boy with big dreams, meets washed up sailor Doggy who tells him of an ancient myth: The Song at the Edge of the World. No one has ever been brave enough to complete the journey North and with sheer determination and help from Doggy’s first mate (a stuffed dog named Ben), the two unlikely friends set off on their quest. Our heroes are met with many trials along the way in this tale of courage, friendship, and the answer to their ultimate question: what makes a good story?

Theater Lab production Company, man holding birthday cake


March 16-19

PNC Arts Annex

It’s Bobby’s 35th birthday party and all of his friends keep asking, why isn’t he married? Why can’t he find the right girl and isn’t it time to settle down and start a family? As Bobby searches for answers, he discovers why being single, being married, and just being alive could drive a person crazy. Boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful, and downright hilarious, COMPANY features Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning songs “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side by Side” and the iconic “Being Alive.”

Let’s all drink to that.

Something Rotten

May 20-21

Victoria Theatre

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten! Two brothers set out to write the world’s first musical in this hilarious mash-up of sixteenth-century Shakespeare and twenty-first-century Broadway. SOMETHING ROTTEN features large song and dance numbers, and a wacky cast of over-the-top characters, each given his or her own special moment in the show to shine. It was lauded by audience members and critics alike, receiving several Best Musical nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years”.
