Grange Park 2018
Roméo et Juliette
Shakespeare's greatest romance is given the passionate embellishment of Gounod's music. Separated by a murderous feud between their families, Roméo and Juliette are impossibly in love. Walls close in, bodies pile up, and a rescue plan goes terminally wrong – though not before the closing duet which will ensure there is not a dry eye in the house.

Grange Park 2018
In the rural, open, optimistic heartlands of early 20th century America, it's a beautiful morning, the corn is high as a elephant's eye, and two farm-girls are overwhelmed with offers to escort them to the square-dance. Through a sequence of some of the best-loved songs in Broadway history, the girls discover who they truly want. But in the process, a rejected suitor picks a fight - and almost turns a classic happy-ending into tragedy.
