- "Side by Side" A Mother/Daughter Love Story starring Boston Globe Columnist, Beverly Beckham with Tom Lamark on piano. Thursday, October 27 Matinee & Friday, October 28 Matinee. Boston Globe Columnist, Beverly Beckham, has been telling stories in print for 40 years, starting back at the Patriot Ledger. Now she is telling a special one in song. Its a mother/daughter love story about growing up in the 1950s in a neighborhood where big families and stay at home mothers and Sunday dinners were the norm. Where her family - she was an only child, she had a working mother - was an exception. But a happy exception. It's about family and familiar settings and Woolworth's and South Shore Plaza and hats borrowed from a shop in Quincy Center, about high heels and white gloves and church on Sunday. And its about music - the love songs her mother sang for her father, the torch songs she sang at minstrel shows, and the pops songs she was always singing around the house. Its an hour of story and song that will bring back memories of days gone by, tug at your heart and make you want to sing along, all at the same time.
- Rick's Larrimore's "Ultimate" Tribute to Rod Stewart Saturday, November 12 - Evening One Night Only at 8 pm. The intimate nature of this show makes it especially captivating with lots of Rod antics, sing-alongs, contests, and major audience participation. "If you ever wanted to see Rod Stewart perform, I highly recommend you check out Rick Larrimore. We keep booking Rick and over four thousand fans just keep coming back each and every year!" Dave Berner, Smithtown Summer Concerts, Long Island, NY
- "What Christmas Means to Me" a holiday musical revue is tailor made to kick off the holiday season. This one stop shopping dining and musical event is a perfect solution for holiday gatherings. Thursday, December 8 - Matinee Friday, Dec 9 - Matinee Saturday, Dec 10 - Evening. The Patriot Ledger says: "A snappy procession of songs and gags! "What Christmas Means to Me" flows easily from smart-seasonal monologues to sentimental caroling; the performers submit, to your approval, some fine hamming, and they sing with confidence, commitment and skill! Standard carols are blended with musical parodies In between are sketches that aim to get at, if not the true meaning of Christmas, then at least a truer version than the consumerism-obsessed, pop-culture treatment most apparent during the holiday season!" The Mariner Newspapers says: "What Christmas Means to Me" is a heartfelt tribute to the holiday season that also knows when to put tongue firmly in cheek! There is no plot, just a series of songs, familiar and not so familiar, to take people's minds o the hustle and bustle of Christmas. They explore everything from parody ("The 12 Days of Christmas") to the traditional (O Holy Night.") So if one is tired of trying to get through the endless lines to see "A Christmas Carol," the light and lively "What Christmas Means to Me" is a heartening way to take your mind off the holiday crush!
