Gondoliers concerns the young bride of the heir to the throne of Barataria who arrives in Venice to join her husband. It turns out, however, that he cannot be identified, since he was entrusted to the care of a drunken gondolier who mixed up the prince with his own son. To complicate matters, the King of Barataria has just been killed. The two young gondoliers must now jointly rule the kingdom until the nurse of the prince can be brought in to determine which of them is the rightful king. When the young queen arrives to claim her husband, she finds that the two gondoliers have both recently married local girls. A last complicating factor is that she, herself, is in love with another man.

Cole Porterís most successful musical, KISS ME KATE garnered five Tony Awards in 1949, with the same number the revival claimed in 2000. This classic play-within-a-play recounts the backstage and onstage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of ďThe Taming of the Shrew,Ē where each cast memberís on-stage life is complicated by what is happening offstage. Bickering couplesí offstage disputes ultimately entangle them with a pair of unexpectedly erudite gangsters and a megalomaniacal U.S. Army general. KISS ME, KATE epitomizes the Broadway musical comedy at its irresistible best.
Musical numbers include Why Canít You Behave, So In Love Am I, Wunderbar, Tom, Dick or Harry, Were Thine That Special Face, Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, I Hate Men, Always True to You (In My Fashion) and Another Opínin, Another Show. KISS ME, KATE is fun, melodious and sophisticated.
Nunsense II : The Second Coming
Book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin
Nunsense II: The Second Coming takes place six weeks after the sisters have staged their first benefit. The sisters are back presenting a "thank-you" show for all the people who supported them in the past. But now, they're a bit slicker, having been "bitten by the theater bug." Things get to off to a rousing start as the sisters sing Nunsense, the Magic Word, but before long. chaos erupts. Two Franciscans come to claim Sister Mary Amnesia (who has won the Publishers? Clearing House Sweepstakes) as one of their own. At the same time the nuns hear that a talent scout is in the audience to see them strut their stuff. From the riotous bingo game run by Sister Amnesia to the hilarious duet, What Would Elvis Do?, to the rousing finale, There's Only One Way to End Your Prayers and That's to Say Amen!, this show will have you rolling in the aisles! © http://www.nunsense.com/shows/nun2.cfm
