SEPTEMBER 9 - 20, 2009

The Devon's exciting inaugural season opens with monster-hit musical comedy, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, on stage September 9th-20th. In this kooky cult classic, a down and out floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an ill-tempered, mean-spirited, R&B-singing carnivorous plant who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite. Fertilized with a wicked score and witty lyrics from the legendary Disney songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS was one of Off-Broadway's longest running shows - proving that sometimes it is easy being green! The Devon invites you to turn over a new leaf by seeing this old favorite in a brand new space.

Not to be outdone by a giant singing plant, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT promises audiences a rainbow ride through biblical Egypt, running November 11th-December 13th. Written by musical theatre masterminds, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JOSEPH is an irresistibly hilarious re-telling of the story of Joseph, his jealous brothers and one very loud garment. This colorful musical will have you singing and dancing in your seats to songs that span all the way from calypso to rock to disco to country. This worldwide phenomenon has been an audience favorite for more than thirty-five years!

The Devon rings in the New Year with the famously funny farce NOISES OFF, running January 27th-February 14th. The show delights in exposing the onstage, offstage and backstage tomfoolery of a travelling troupe of hapless British actors. During their ill-fated touring production of the fictitious farce Nothing On, these antic actors try (and spectacularly fail) to cope with slamming doors, fooling around, backstage drinking, and, of course, plates upon plates of sardines. Everything that can go wrong does, as actors desperately fumble to hang on to their lines, their performances and the furniture. Critically hailed as "the funniest farce ever,"NOISES OFF is an unrivalled delight for anyone who thinks that falling down is funny, that underwear is outerwear & that theater is a metaphor for life itself.

MARCH 3 - 21, 2010
Another highlight of the inaugural season includes the intoxicatingly enjoyable PUMP BOYS & DINETTES, running March 3rd-21st. Welcome to Highway 57! Home to fun-loving gas station pump boys Jim and LM and the very vivacious Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, waitresses at the Double Cupp Diner. This charismatic crew lives in their own country, blues and rock-n-roll heaven - singing through their days and dancing the nights away. Whether they're crooning over the heart-throb cashier at Woolworths or just hankering for heftier tips, these sensational singers will get you into the groove of their rockin' tunes. This charming musical is a little-known gem that received a Tony Nomination for Best Musical in 1982 and became a fan favorite as it toured nationally. Join in on the fun as the boys go fishing, the girls brew up some homemade beer and the whole gang plans a trip to Florida... in Uncle Bob's Winnebago.

APRIL 7 - 25, 2010
The season wraps up a little nostalgia and a lot of laughs as the Devon presents FOREVER PLAID, running April 7th-25th. FOREVER PLAID is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert. Miraculously, they come back to Earth 25 years later for a chance to fulfill their dreams of fame and fortune before finally returning to Heaven. Talk about a blast from the past! The show is filled with the catchy pop hits of the 1950s songs and delightful patter that will have audiences rolling in the aisles.
