“The Great American Trailer Park Musicalis a rollicking musical extravaganza portraying (and poking a little fun at) a quintessentially American community: the Trailer Park! With such songs as “The Great American TV Show” and “Storms-a-Brewin”, this show has something for everyone - hilarious one liners, beautiful harmonies, and toe-tapping dance moves!” reports director Brian Farnham.
The story centers around husband and wife Norbert (Bob Purosky) and Jeannie Garstecki (Ann Marie Foley). As a result of personal tragedy, Jeannie becomes an agoraphobic, daytime-TV-obsessed shut-in. When the sultry new girl (Ellie Weise) moves in next door, the sparks (and fur) start to fly! Further drama ensues when the jealous ex-boyfriend (Dale Wayne Williams) arrives to throw everything into hysterical chaos. Rounding out the cast is a trio of larger-than-life Trailer Park ladies who act as Greek Chorus and narrators (Charlotte Maybury Ruppert, Kayla Henry, and Adriana Flores). All are accompanied by a truly professional rock combo band led by Music Director Angie Schwab and including Polly Bashore (percussion), Charlie Slocum (guitar), and Rick Peterson (bass).
This show is rated PG-13 for adult content and language.

9/14-22 - IXION ENSEMBLE presentsTHE WOLVESby Sarah Delappe
"Thrilling! THE WOLVES keeps you on the edge of your seat. The exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES, SEPTEMBER 12, 2016
Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.
The Wolves is directed by Jacquelyn Marks, who is making her Ixion directing debut. Most recently Ms. Marks was in Ixion's production of Hope and made her Ixion debut in Welcome to the White Room. Her assistant director is Sadonna Croff.
Featured in this production as the Soccer Mom will be award-winning actress Sara Frank-Hepfer. Ms. Hepfer will be joined by a cast of young performers new to the Ixion stage: Sommer Bouknight, Liz Croff, Katherine Hawthorne, Emily Herman, Heidi Kowynia, Katie McArthur, Neysa McGarrity, Rachael Steffens and Sarah Wietecha.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of the show layout, we have reduced the available seats for each performance. Seating has been reduced by about a third of usual capacity.

9/19-29 - Get Your Tickets Now For Peppermint Creek’s "Bright Star"
Opening Thursday September 19
Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s.
When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.
Propelled by a live bluegrass orchestra, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances from 17 of Lansing's most talented performers. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful. Order your tickets today!
