The Sketch Club’s partnership with the Rowan Fine Arts Center at Gloucester County College continues through “The Music Man” in February. The Fine Arts Center is handicapped accessible, and is easy to get to from anywhere in the region (see the “Directions” tab). However, the remainder of our 2017 season will be presented at our Glover Street Playhouse in Woodbury as the Fine Arts Center undergoes extensive renovation. We look forward to returning to the Fine Arts Center in 2018.
**PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR GLOVER STREET PLAYHOUSE IS NOT HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE.

The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning family-friendly musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957. The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
This comedy by Rick Abbot tells the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime while disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives. The tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a mistake.
Fast paced and wildly funny, this musical is a riotous ride (complete with audience participation) that features a touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a vibrant musical score by William Finn.
Set at the dawn of a new century, in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together - that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician. Together they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the Tony-winning score draws upon many musical styles, including ragtime, klezmer, waltzes, up-tempo banjo tunes, and haunting anthems.
There’s no place like home for the holidays, and this musical gathering of friends and family will warm you heart and get you in the spirit of the season. Chock full of favorite holiday songs, dance, and humor, you’ll agree there’s no place like The Sketch Club for the holidays!
