In the mid-1960s, a young writer’s life turns upside down when her girlfriend drops some unexpected news. Even 50 years later, the reverberations of that moment, and its unexpected consequences, still echo in the intersecting lives of four individuals caught up in a rapidly changing world.

We are back for our second year at the Havre de Grace Opera House. After performing to a sold out house last spring we have crafted a new Vaudeville for everyone to enjoy. For our first-timers, prepare for a night filled with music, comedy, drama and dance! We provide a unique combination of music throughout the last century to pay homage to the Vaudevilles that were widely popular in the early 20th century while making them relevant for today.
