Ghost The Musical (July 31-Aug. 18) is a timeless musical fantasy about the power of love adapted from the hit film. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, to help him protect Molly and avenge his death. The show features Skrip, Lanyon, Roston, Coran, Palmer, Esteban Andres Cruz, Jeffrey Todd Parrott, Camille Robinson and Denzel Tsopnang.

Silent Sky (Aug. 21-Sept. 1) is the startling, entertaining true story of a brilliant, history-making woman named Henrietta Swan Leavitt. The show features Bissell, Brookshire, Lanyon, Roman and Penny Slusher.

Closing the 2019 season is George Washington’s Teeth (Sept. 4-Oct. 20), a silly comedy about the enthusiastic ladies of the New Bunion Historical Society who are trying to stop the town council from kicking their little-visited history museum out of its old firehouse home. Their potential savior is a sure-fire crowd pleaser: a pair of dentures made for George Washington right there in the town of New Bunion. The show features Katherine Keberlein, Lanyon, Emma Rosenthal, Roman and Slusher.
