Meet Pepe Hernandez, over-ambitious patriarch of the world’s most dubious family of entertainers, whose unflagging confidence cobbled from decades spent touring the bottom-rung nightclub circuit south-of-the-border, has inspired him to ascend into big-top territory and head north to…Burbank, legendary home of Walt Disney, IKEA, and now Pepe Hernandez! Nothing – not even the labyrinthine layout of IKEA - will hinder this fearless, feckless familia in their determined quest for international stardom. Welcome to El Grande CIRCUS de Coca-Cola!

|ANOTHER ROLL OF THE DICE
Book by Mark Saltzman
Based on Stories by Damon Runyon Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Music by Frank Loesser and others
Few writers made the streets of New York sing like Damon Runyon. His beat was the Great White Way – a scant mile of bright lights and brighter nightlife. He was a reporter in the Thirties, and he saw it all – bootleggers, gamblers, hustlers, actors, showgirls, and gangsters. In this new musical by Mark Saltzman (who wrote our hit from last season Falling for Make Believe) Runyon’s tales of guys and dolls, scams and swindles, are once again matched with songs by the great Frank Loesser, the original Guys and Dolls composer.

A barbershop quartet who's been belting out close harmonies for twenty years suddenly loses its lead singer, who dropped dead at the Regionals on a heart-stopping high C. The three surviving members must cease their bickering and race to find a replacement in time for Nationals. They hear a tenor with a gorgeous voice, but when he shows up he's a dark-skinned Indian in a turban who is also an illegal immigrant. And one of the quartet is Archie Bunker. A wonderful comedy about the journey they take to find their voice together.
“Pure fun from the opening scene to the final curtain call…A hit show for sure!”
