Next up is the ever-charming "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" (Nov. 14-Dec. 7). Inspired by Charles M. Schultz's "Peanuts" characters, the tuner features music and lyrics by Clark Gesner and book by John Gordon.

Pat Able of Geneva reprises his role as Jacob Marley in Tom Mula's "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol," running Dec. 11-21.

In January, Steel Beam founder and artistic director Donna Steele stars in "Veronica's Room" (Jan. 9-Feb. 8), a ghoulish, psychological thriller by Ira Levin ("Deathtrap," "Rosemary's Baby") about an elderly couple who persuade a young woman to impersonate a long-dead girl named Veronica in order to comfort her ailing, elderly sister. Dan LeFranc's "The Big Meal," the story of a family told over several dinners and nearly 80 years, runs Feb. 20-March 15, 2015. That's followed by the musical "Ordinary Days" (April 10-May 3, 2015), composer/lyricist Adam Gwon's look at how one graduate student's lost thesis transforms four New Yorkers. The final show, running May 15-June 7, 2015, will be announced later.
