Cox & Box: A Musical Comedy
Score by Arthur Sullivan
Based on the play by John Maddison Morton, adaptation by F.C. Burnand, music by Arthur Sullivan
Synopsis: In this rollicking, silly, musical farce, conniving landlord Sgt. Bouncer has tricked Mr. Cox and Mr. Box (who have opposing schedules) into sharing the same apartment! But how far can he take the scheme before chaos ensues? Featuring music by Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert/Sullivan fame!

A Good Night’s Rest
“Mr. Snobbington has had a long day and is desperately trying to get some sleep. After hearing a ruckus outside, he leans out his window to find one of his neighbors loudly trying to get into his own house, apparently locked out. After a testy exchange, and still finding himself in desperate need of sleep, Snobbington decides to invite the man inside his own apartment if only he will only quiet down. What could possibly go wrong?”
