A Christmas Story @ CPH 2017
Benefit Date: Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 7:30pm
He’s back! One boy. One holiday wish. And a world that seems to be conspiring to make certain it doesn’t come true. The record-breaking show returns to the CPH stage in all its pink-bunny-suit, glowing-leg-lamp, triple-dog-daring glory. The perfect holiday treat for the entire family.

Spelling Bee @ CPH
Benefit Date: Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 6:30pm
Six middle-school misfits are thrown into a cutthroat, high-stakes competition and   P-A-N-D-E-M-O-N-I-U-M takes first place. Welcome to the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, where eccentric adolescents (all played by adults!) get their chance to shine as they vie to prove they are the worthy of a shot at “Nationals.” A touching and irreverent coming-of-age comedy with a high-spirited, improvised spelling bee, this Tony Award-winning musical is a laugh-out-loud winner for
all ages.
