    The Fabulous Lipitones 
    by John Markus & Mark St. Germain
    Choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld
    Directed by Michael Mastro with Donald Corren, Wally Dunn, Rohan Kymal and Jim Walton
    November 18th – December 14th
    What happens when a barbershop quartet loses a key member to a heart-stopping high "B flat?" The three surviving members suddenly find themselves scrambling to find a tenor before the national competition. When the golden tones of "Bob" are heard through the phone, the Lipitones are all ears...but when they meet him in person, he's not quite what they expected. An uproarious comedy of misunderstanding, sterotypes and the path to perfect harmony. Tickets starting at $28 now available as well as flexible, affordable admission packages. For further information, contact the George Street Playhouse Box Office at 732-246-7717.

Featuring original music by 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look-a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
