Rat Pack at Shea's on 4/9/2011

Experience the ritz and allure of classic Vegas with this swinging party of a show! THE RAT PACK IS BACK! transports the audience back through time and space to a balmy night circa 1960 when four show business legends -- Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Dean Martin -- converged at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas for the first time. These stars delivered style with substance, swing with swagger and a non-stop party to which everyone wanted access.

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at MusicalFare Theatre

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at MusicalFare Theatre

 April 6th – May 15th, 2011

THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst as six adolescent outsiders vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest Broadway musical about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.  Featuring audience members who compete onstage, THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE will be directed by Buffalo native and SPELLING BEE Broadway cast member, Greg Stuhr.

MusicalFare Theatre, 4380 Main Street Suite 123, Amherst NY 14226
