NUNSENSE - THE MUSICAL COMEDY THAT IS SECOND TO NUN!
Easy Street Productions proudly presents Nunsense, a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. Thus, the remaining nuns – Mother Superior Sister Regina (Maureen Collins), mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert (Carla D. Gipson), street-wise Sister Robert Anne (Colleen Chance), befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia (Brandy Johanntges) and ballet-loving Sister Leo (Elizabeth Amstutz) – stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon!

Disney Beauty and the Beast
The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra and Easy Street Productions will once again join forces to bring another Broadway musical to the Powers Auditorium stage, Disney Beauty and the Beast!
Released in 1991, Beauty and the Beast became the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture at the 64th Academy Awards, where it won the Academy Award for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for its title song. Based on Disney’s Academy Award-winning film, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton, Beauty and the Beast became Disney’s first Broadway production. Opening in 1994, the eye-popping spectacle ran for over 13 years, becoming the 10th longest-running show of all time. Disney’s “tale as old as time” is filled with unforgettable characters, lavish costumes, and dazzling production numbers including Beauty and the Beast, Be Our Guest and many more.
The same creative team that staged Guys and Dolls and South Pacific will be back for Beauty and the Beast including Easy Street Productions director Todd Hancock and Youngstown Symphony Orchestra conductor and music director Randall Craig Fleischer. Also returning are Easy Street musical director Don Yallech and choreographer Megan Cleland.
Disney Beauty and the Beast is slated for two performances only on Saturday, May 2nd at 7:30 and Sunday, May 3rd at 2:30 in Powers Auditorium at DeYor PAC. Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 14th at the DeYor PAC box office, 330-744-0264 M-F 10:00-3:00, or online at YoungstownSymphony.com.
