Conrack is a musical based on Pat Conroy's real-life story of teaching on a remote South Carolina island. The story details his encounter with a by-the-book principal and children who can hardly read. A determined group of grandparents and the children's own pluck pull him through — until he's fired and has to learn the value of letting go of loved ones. This reading's 14-member cast features A.J. Shively (Bright Star) as Pat Conroy, Tony Award nominee Ernestine Jackson (Raisin), and Tony nominee Vivian Reed (Bubbling Brown Sugar).
Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who also happens to be plus-sized. Forced to explain his new relationship to his friends who think that size does matter, Tom faces an impossible choice in Fat Pig.

Freely adapted from William Congreve's masterpiece, this contemporary retelling shifts the story to the demimonde of the hyper-rich Hamptons. Can love emerge in a world where love has no value? A good-hearted heiress has become prey to the attentions of an amoral party boy. After he callowly seduces her aunt, making the older woman a figure of public ridicule, their romance is dead in the water. But his insistence on winning back the moneyed heroine fuels the summer's gossip in the land of the one-percent.
