A sassy celebration of the 1930s and '40s, this jukebox musical offers a bonanza of the way things were during the Depression, World War II, and the post-war boom. From the funky jive of Harlem to the sophisticated elegance of El Morocco and the romance of the Stage Door Canteen, this is an evening filled with jazz, blues, bebop and classic songs.

A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title "Gaslight," this mystery thriller tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th-century London. Familiar with the term "gaslighting"? It comes from this classic work of drama in which the tension builds into some of the most suspenseful sequences in modern theatre. The famous movie version of "Gaslight" featured Joseph Cotten and Ingrid Bergman.
December 31, 2021: The AFD Board has made the sad and difficult decision to cancel the production of "Pippin." We hope for brighter days ahead, and as of this point plan to move forward with "Boeing, Boeing."
Please take care and be safe.

A hit comedy similar in vein to Shakespeare’s comedies of merry misadventures and mistaken identities, "Boeing Boeing" relates the exploits of French bachelor Bernard as he juggles three lady loves. Three flight attendants, to be exact, from three different countries. Bernard's life hits some turbulence when complications such as a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful stratagems to keep all three girlfriends in the dark about each other.
