This iconic, Pulitzer Prize-winning show re-defined what a musical could be and became the anthem of a generation. Yet it is still as poignant, timely, and life-affirming as it was when it was first produced.

At the height of the AIDS crisis, a group of modern-day bohemians struggles to survive on the Lower East Side of New York City. The terrifying disease is everywhere, touching the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, Angel, Mark, Maureen, Joanne, and Benny in different ways. In the face of uncertainty, fear, and death, these friends find ways to love each other, and to love life.

This production is performed by our adult community theatre troupe, the Arts Hub Players. Is is approximately 2.5 hours long, including intermission. This production is rated PG-13.

Fee: $15 – $28

Sweeney Todd

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Attend this terrifying tale of murder, mayhem and meat pies, brought to you in a special collaboration between The Arts Hub and Tracy Warren, of Boulder Dinner Theatre fame.

Sweeney Todd has returned to London, after serving a sentence for a crime he did not commit, only to find his family destroyed by the man who framed him. Determined to take his revenge on a society that abandoned and betrayed him, Todd returns to his old barber shop, which happens to be above the failing pie shop of his old landlady, Mrs. Lovett. The two of them quickly discover that they can help each other – Mr. Todd can provide Mrs. Lovett with a certain crucial ingredient for her meat pies, and Mrs. Lovett can ensure that Mr. Todd’s murderous rampage will never be discovered. London will never be the same.

This production is performed by our adult community theatre troupe, the Arts Hub Players. Is is approximately 2.5 hours long, including intermission. This production is rated R, and no children’s tickets are available for purchase.

Fee: $18 for seniors and students, $28 for adults
