Fox Valley Repertory, in residence at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, announced its 2014 season, which includes two productions showcasing students from its performing arts academy.
The season begins Jan. 16, 2014, with "Nunsense," the popular show about five quirky nuns trying to raise money by putting on a variety show. Christopher Sergel's "Cheaper by the Dozen," based on the memoir by Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth about their experiences raising 12 children during the 1920s, follows on March 27, 2014.
The musical revue "Sisters of Swing," chronicling the career of the best-selling 1940s vocal group The Andrews Sisters, begins previews June 5, 2014.
Neil Simon's coming-of-age comedy "Brighton Beach Memoirs" begins previews Aug. 28. The first in Simon's Eugene trilogy, the play centers on teenage Eugene Jerome, who grows up in a chaotic 1930s Brooklyn home he shares with his parents, older brother, Socialist grandfather, his widowed aunt and her two daughters.
The season concludes on Nov. 13, 2014, with a holiday revue titled "Christmas on Broadway," featuring tunes like "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas."
Performances will all be staged at the Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 E. Main St., St. Charles. Season subscriptions start at $80 and are available by phone at (630) 584-6342 or online at foxvalleyrep.org.
