Meet the ladies, a trio of Broadway’s “Christines” from The Phantom Of The Opera sing everything from Broadway classics to The Beatles as solo artists and in distinctively intricate three-part harmony. These beautiful women provide an evening of surprises and flirtatious fun with exquisite musicianship, humor and class. Think The Three Tenors; but cooler, funnier and they look better in cocktail dresses!


A a one-man show written by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, and starring Toledo’s own Paul Causman, is a modern interpretation of The Iliad, attributed to the Greek poet Homer.

Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla need a boy to help with the chores around their farm on Prince Edward Island. They are not expecting Anne Shirley, a vivacious orphan with a wild imagination and a breathless fascination with finding a place she can call home. ArtsPower’s heart-warming musical, based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved novels, follows Anne on her unlikely journey to find the family she’s always wanted.


In a concert-style show that he has been presenting for the last five years, Hanna introduces a variety of animals on stage along with video clips from his many wildlife adventures around the world, hoping to entertain and inform in the laid-back style that has made him the Director Emeritus to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, one of the country’s most recognizable animal authorities. “It’s like going on safari with me and getting a chance to see the animals on stage as well,” Hanna said. “I love doing these shows because when I do my TV shows all you really see is cameras in front of you, but here is a chance to really meet people and talk to them and find out what they want to know.”

This fun-filled ballet is a story of a magician who accidentally mixes up his magic spells with a recipe for pancakes one morning! As a result, all the pancakes come to life and escape throughout the city. His whole family then set about the hilarious task of chasing down the pancakes and bringing them home.


Maureen McGovern, celebrated as “The Stradivarius Voice,” marks the 43rd anniversary of the release of her #1 Oscar-winning International Gold Record, “The Morning After” from The Poseidon Adventure, which garnered her a Grammy Nomination in 1973 for “Best New Artist.” Maureen received her second Grammy Nomination in 1998 for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal” for her solo piano/voice album, The Pleasure of His Company. Other hits include, “Can You Read My Mind” from Superman, the Oscar-winning “We May Never Love Like This Again” from The Towering Inferno and “Different Worlds” from the TV series Angie.

This musical tells the funny and poignant story of a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears underneath his kitchen table, the boy is ready to make a deal with the monster. If the monster eats his peas, the boy will give the monster any of his possessions. First, it’s the boy’s soccer ball. Then, his bike. But, when the monster raises the stakes, will the boy refuse the monster and make the difficult decision to face his own fears? Children and adults alike will be entertained and engaged by this wonderfully written tale about the value of will power.
