Festival 2016

On The Twentieth Century

On The Twentieth Century

The 2015 Broadway revival hailed as "ridiculously sublime"( New York Times) and "the show of our dreams!" (Variety).

Come along for the ride on a luxury train bound from Chicago to New York, when luck, love and mischief collide as bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee cajoles Hollywood starlet Lily Garland into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama-and perhaps in his life? An irresistible "Gilbert and Sulllivan meets Rossini meets Romberg" score combines with the slapstick and wise cracks of classic screwball comedy for pure delight!

Book & Lyrics by: Adolph Green & Betty Comden 

Music by: Cy Coleman 

Directed by:  Robert Neu

Musical Direction: Jeffrey Stirling

Based on a play by Ben Hecht & Charles McArthur and also a play by Bruce Millholland

Oh, Coward!

Oh, Coward!

The urbane sophistication and wit of the iconic Noël Coward are rivalled only by Oscar Wilde and Cole Porter. Nationally-recognized director and Coward expert Gary Briggle will direct and perform in this three-singer celebration of the multi-talented genius known to his fans simply as The Master. In the intimate setting of Concordia's Black Box Theater, Oh, Coward! promises to enchant music lovers with some of the most memorable tunes of the 20th century. You won't want to miss it!


Get your tickets today! Early bird discount available only through February 29. Order online at or by phone at (612) 343-3390.

A musical review of the works of Noël Coward.
