A wickedly fresh satire, Larissa FastHorse's The Thanksgiving Play feasts on the modern cultural dilemma and that most American of holidays.

How does one celebrate Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? A group of progressive teaching artists attempt to answer that question by devising a Thanksgiving school pageant. As well-meaning plans bake into an outrageous sendup of culturally sensitive behavior, the play injects some laughter into activism, apathy and all the assumptions in between.

Comedy / 2f, 2m / 90 minutes

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig is a fast-moving, powerful theatrical ride.

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

Dramatic Comedy / 5f, 5m / 120+ minutes

A Raisin in the Sun is Lorraine Hansberry's defiantly hopeful look at three generations at a crossroads, in a country always on the cusp of change.

In Chicago's South Side in the early 1950s, a life insurance check sent to the Youngers arrives with the promise of opportunity. This working-class Black family then considers buying a house in the all-white Clybourne Park – but conflicting aspirations and a neighborhood's intolerance threaten the dream's reality.

The first work by a female playwright of color to be produced on Broadway, this searing play is as provocative and powerful today as when it premiered.

Drama / 3f, 7m, 1 boy / 120+ minutes

For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday by Sarah Ruhl is a loving look at a family's view of death, life, and and the allure of never growing up.

When Ann thinks of her father, she immediately remembers playing Peter Pan in her hometown theater in Iowa, particularly when he used to bring her flowers after her performance. Her memory is jogged by the fact that she and her four siblings are in their father’s hospital room during his final moments. His death sparks a conversational wake that includes everything from arguments over politics to when each sibling realized that they grew up.

Dramatic Comedy / 2f, 4m / 90 minutes

Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, written by award-winning composer Dave Malloy, is an electropop opera based on a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace.

Young and impulsive, Natasha Rostova arrives in Moscow to await the return of her fiancé from the front lines. When she falls under the spell of the roguish Anatole, it is up to Pierre, a family friend in the middle of an existential crisis, to pick up the pieces of her shattered reputation. Following acclaimed runs on and Off Broadway, this award-winning musical expands the possibilities for the genre with its daring score and bold storytelling.

Hello! I’m a current customer and public school teacher, and I am desperately hoping you can help me. I'm not one to post on social media, and I completely understand about the difficulties of working remotely etc., but I’ve been waiting 6 weeks for an answer and my district’s accounting books close June 10th. I haven't received any information even after several emails. I’ve also called and they weren’t able to give me additional information beside what was on the website (which didn't cover my questions). Please help- I am desperate for an answer. I know the website says we would receive a partial refund because we have show kits for GTK Once Upon a Mattress, but it doesn’t say how much a partial refund is. Is it just the licensing fee? Is it everything except the delivery charge (which is what the person on the phone was suggesting but admittedly wasn’t sure at all)? I am asking because the difference in a “partial refund” is huge for a middle school that has no operating budget. Losing $100 out of the $800 or so we paid is one thing, but losing $500/$600 etc is an entirely other issue when your starting budget is only $2000 to begin with. I am PLEADING that I can get an answer from someone today, as well as the other questions that I sent in my email. Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate any information you can give me. Take care and stay well, Shekinah Brosnan

I have reached out SEVERAL times to inquire about the scripts - that we paid extra to have come early, with NO response. As of today, they have not come and I have 3 rehearsals this week. I have also reached out to see what the cost would be and how to get the tracks for the Cinderella Broadway version from Right on Cue. I email - I call - I try to leave messages and either there is NO answer or their mailboxes are full. You were very willing to take our money - in fact, you almost overcharged us by over $3,000.00 but you seem unable or ill-equipped to give customer service!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - please contact me to advise on when my scripts will arrive with a tracking number and how to get the tracks!!!!!
Hi Concord Theatricals... We are confirmed to perform Carrie the Musical through you folks. It is scheduled to go up March 12. We have sent payment in and I was assured we would have our materials early this week at the latest. Needless to say we haven't seen anything. I have tried calling and emailing. No one picks up the phone or returns voicemails or emails. There is no tracking number available through our account on the new website - in fact, I can't see anything under my account showing our order. We desperately need the orchestration. Somebody please help!
