“Only in America: A Celebration of American Music” will be directed by Andrew Lewis.

The second act will feature the music of Dixieland, Broadway and rock and roll.
“Who Killed the Boss?” is a hilarious office party murder mystery. Scott Burrell is the director. The play is set at National Universal Technology Services before the annual company party. Each area of the company is buzzing about the party, which may be a bit restrained after last year’s wild event. Characters such as Rob from marketing, Bill from I.T. and Amanda, the new intern are part of the cast.
