Guys and Dolls by Frank Loesser, Jo Swerling, & Abe Burrows
In this beloved 1950s musical comedy, dice-slinging gamblers, pious missionaries, and glamorous show girls come together for a light-hearted romp through New York. It’s a high stakes game of love as brazen and charming Nathan Detroit bets Sky Masterson $1,000 to woo missionary Sarah Brown. Meanwhile, cabaret singer Adelaide tries to convince Nathan, her fiancé of 14 years, to finally tie the knot. A classic musical, Guys and Dolls features the showstoppers “Luck be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink,” and others.

Pay-What-You-Can-Preview Performance: Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare @ Klein Theatre

At UMW Theatre, we are pleased to announce that we will now be introducing Pay-What-You-Can (PWYC) Preview Performances. Every Wednesday, prior to the opening night of our productions, we will open the box office TWO hours before curtain at 5:30 pm to welcome any and all guests to pay any amount at the box office for a ticket to that night’s performance. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and will only be sold at the box office window starting at 5:30 pm on the specified Wednesdays!

Beatrice and Benedick are meant for each other. Trouble is, they don’t see it that way. In one of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most romantic of comedies, mistaken identities, misdirected insults, devious fakery, and bumbling antics prove no match for the effervescent power of love. Will calculated swooning and conniving mischief succeed to find Beatrice and Benedick falling madly for each other, or will it all simply amount to Much Ado About Nothing?

“A show that reminds you that plays are meant to live off the page, jostling for space in a room full of people.” —The New York Times

“ . . . the romantic comedy for the ages.” —Chicago Tribune

Shear Madness by Paul Pöertner
This unique whodunit takes place in the Shear Madness hairstyling salon and is chock full of up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor driven by some of the zaniest characters you will ever meet. During the course of the play, a murder is committed and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery in the annals of crime. The outcome is never the same in this long-running, laugh ’til you hurt blockbuster comedy. We will arrive at the Kennedy Center with time for you to grab lunch at the KC Café or eat the lunch you bring on the terrace overlooking the Potomac.
