In the Heights

December 13-14, 2019 at the Lyric Theatre Main Stage
In collaboration with the Rochester Latino Theatre Company

Performed by OFC Creations teen students. Lin Manuel Miranda's IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. Performed in collaboration with the Rochester Latino Theatre Company.

Wrapping Around the Christmas Tree

December 20-22, 2019 at the Lyric Theatre Main Stage

Written by local playwright Charlie Harrington; Conceived and directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson

It's the height of the holiday season, and frugal folks at the Northview Shopping Center are wrapping presents, singing songs, and harkening holiday high jinks. But this year, there are two groups that want to open up a present wrapping station: Cresthill Middle School, and the kooky ladies at Cozy Times Senior Community. The ribbons unravel as the brainiacs take on the spunky grandmas in a wrap-off, all alongside the antics of a helicopter mom, a zany mall cop, and... Saint Nicholas himself! All the fun and folly is served up with a sugary dose of holiday cheer and savory parody songs set to your favorite holiday tunes. This brand new holiday musical comedy is fun for the whole family!    

Starring: Dresden Engle, Diane Chevron, Sarah Reynolds Marge Mattioli,
and many more!
