Charles Schulz's beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner's classic musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn't give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket–toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and "blockhead," himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine's Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair.

FRO Returns to Renton September 8 for Sexy '60s Rock Party!

No Joke! Super mega rock stars and Renton's own FRO returns to the Renton Civic Theatre on Saturday, September 8 for its Sexy '60s Rock Party! Doors open at 7 pm, you can get your first drink at 7:01 in the swanky Renton Theater lobby, and then take your spot in one of the brand new seats inside RTC. FRO takes the stage at 8 pm and 69 seconds. You can pay $15 per ticket at the door or, better yet, reserve your spot in world history by buying your ticket online. This is an all-ages show so bring the family!

How did this happen? FRO is from Renton and this is a Renton story. Lead singer Luther X (Mike Savage) and bassist Jobal (Scott Mallory) are from Lindbergh High. Guitarist Ranch (John Moodie) is a Renton High graduate. Drummer Sweet Baby (Dave Helber) and Barry "on Sax" Erickson are from Seattle, wherever that is.

But that's just the tip of the south county iceberg. FRO was voted the best band in Renton in a City of Renton poll conducted by the City of Renton. FRO started both legendary burger joints Herfy's and Dag's. FRO invented the taco at the Renton Taco Time. FRO was the first car to cruise the loop in 1969 in its creamsicle orange Chevy Impala. FRO were the first dudes to pick up Renton chicks at the Renton loop complete with big hair and candy apple red lip gloss. FRO laid concrete foundation for Southcenter, which is supposedly in Tukwila but is really in Renton. FRO dug the trench that later became the Cedar River. FRO named Gene Coulon Park after its first sound man, Gene Coulon. FRO designed the Renton Theater and built it with its bare hands while drinking copious amounts of Renton beer piped in from the kegs behind the Maverick restaurant a few blocks away. FRO piloted the first 747 from Renton Municipal Airport with only one engine. FRO pet horses with love at Longacres Racetrack. FRO introduced your mom and dad and married them at Liberty Park.

Enough about Renton. Let's talk about FRO. They were voted best band of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine in 1969. They have a time machine and travel back and forth between 1969 and 2018 so they can party with groovy hippie chicks. They have huge sexy hair, tight pants, a psychedelic slide show and a band goat named Peanut Butter who plays the cowbell. Last time FRO played Renton, it was a major sell–out party and the cops showed up to tell them to lay off the smoke machine before drinking whisky backstage with the band.

This post is done, but your life has just begun. You haven't partied this hard since you went to Farrell’s with your homecoming date. Farrell's is gone, but FRO is still here to carry on the party tradition, but on steroids to the 69th power. Fulfill your destiny and go with the FRO on September 8th! Order your tickets today to get the best available seats for the triumphant return of FRO to Renton!

The Death of Me

By Christine Foster
Direction by Curt Hetherington

21 September 2018 — 6 October 2018

Order Tickets

What happens when you find yourself suddenly dead with no idea how it happened? How can you move on? Shelley and Paul, a happily married couple, were both in perfect health up to the very last — unremembered — moments of their lives. What happened? Were they murdered? If so the murderer must be one of their closest friends. And, if so, the murderer is still down there and may strike again. Voices in the Limbo give them permission to go back and relive the night of the mysterious events with the proviso that they can change nothing. Can they find out who murdered them?

It's a Wonderful Life

Adapted for the stage by James W. Rodgers.
Based on the film by Frank Capra and the story by Peter Van Doren Stern.
Direction by Vincent Orduña

In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. This is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. His guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him — by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born — that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the
American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.

Moon Over Buffalo

By Ken Ludwig
Direction by Buddy Todd

8 February 2019 — 23 February 2019

Order Tickets

The hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. Now they're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split–up caused by George's dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf, old stage–manager mother who hates every bone in George's body.

Twelve Angry Men

by Sherman Sergel
Direction by Bill Huls

5 April 2019 — 20 April 2019

Order Tickets

A 19–year–old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open–and–shut case until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign–born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character
as the various testimonies are re–examined, the murder is re–enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it will electrify you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

When the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the
sisters, they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over a school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth–grade production of Grease. We meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister
Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.
