2009 Season

"High Society"
May 28 - June 7

Our opening show this season is filled with High Society hijinks, as a Long Island socialite tries to plan her wedding around the antics of an ex-husband and a smitten reporter. The laughs never stop, and the score is a Cole Porter hit parade: "Ridin' High, I Love Paris, Just One of Those Things, It's All Right With Me, Well Did You Evah?, True Love," and more.

"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"
June 11-21

No other show has as many styles as Webber & Rice's light-heartedly delightful musical tale of the Biblical story of the coat of many colors. "Go, Go, Go, Joseph, One More Angel in Heaven, Close Every Door, Any Dream Will Do."

"Hello, Dolly!"
June 25-July 5

Dolly Gallagher Levi is back where she belongs, putting her hand in to create a merry, mixed-up romp, where everyone meets their match at the end. Jerry Herman songs include "Ribbons Down My Back, So Long Dearie, Sunday Clothes, It Only Takes a Moment," and of course the inimitable title song, "Hello, Dolly!" See the fun and hear the songs.

"Beauty and the Beast"
July 9-26

Our three-week show this year is a "Tale As Old As Time," a charming, romantic fairy tale for young and old alike. The story is a classic, retold in a wonderfully warm, funny, and touching musical that you'll want to savor every moment. Bring the children, or borrow some if you need to, but don't miss it! The lively score includes "Me, Home, Be Our Guest, Human Again, If You Can't Love Her, Beauty and the Beast."

"Sweet Charity"
July 30-August 9

Get ready to laugh, cry, sing, dance, and fall in love with Charity Hope Valentine. She's the girl who always gets the "fuzzy end of the lollipop," but never stops trying to find love. Neil Simon comedy and Cy Coleman songs: "Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Where Am I Going, I'm A Brass Band," team up perfectly in this sweetheart of a show.

"Crazy for You"
August 13-23

The unbeatable combination of Gershwin, Gershwin, and more Gershwin, plus laughs and love galore as the non-stop action goes from New York City to Deadrock, Nevada, and back again. "Bidin' My Time, Someone To Watch Over Me, Embraceable You," and "I Got Rhythm," featuring more than seven minutes of the most thrilling tap-dancing ever. You'd be crazy to miss it!

"Meet Me In St. Louis"
August 27-September 6

It's the excitement of a World's Fair and the warmth of Christmas. This heartwarming treasure is filled with family love and fun, not to mention some dandy songs: "The Trolley Song, The Boy Next Door, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Under The Bamboo Tree," and the charming title song.

MHT II Productions presents ...
September 11-20

MHT II Productions is planning a show that we can't name just yet, but we know you'll have a blast with the past when you see and hear it! The best '80's sounds will make you want to tap your foot and cut loose, especially when the dancing heats up! The rockin' songs, sweet ballads, and uplifting story will have you almost in paradise.
