Auditions are complete and the cast has been chosen for our final play of the year, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. A mystery by Simon Stephens, based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon.

When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit. This leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever. Winner of 7 Oliver Awards: 5 Tony Awards including Best Play – 2015, 6 Drama Awards and 5 Outer Critics Circle Award and Drama League Award. The play shows October 11-13 and 18-20.

The Return, a popular Beatles tribute band, returns to the Peacock on November 2nd & 3rd. This group started in 1995 when 4 friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. Twenty plus years later they are still playing together and have created the highest level of authenticity possible. From John Lennon’s on-stage gum chewing, to using exact replicas of the instruments, costumes and gear the Beatles used, they have not left any detail to chance. Tony Perkins of Good Morning America said, “They were great! Their energy and enthusiasm jumps off the stage. It was quite fun to watch them and imagine what it must have been like at an actual Beatle.”
