Rooftop Productions

Rooftop Productions

The Center for the Arts' Rooftop Productions is a community theatre group for adults. Rooftop offers three productions each year in our Kellar Family Theater located on the building's third floor. Audition dates (and snow dates when applicable) will be announced as they approach.


A Christmas Carol

Get in the holiday spirit with the Broadway version of A Christmas Carol, the Musical, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and book by Mike Ockrent and Lynn Ahrens. A Christmas Carol, the Musical is a spectacular holiday tradition for the entire family. After Scrooge declares the Christmas season a “humbug”, he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Reliving moments from his misspent youth and faced with his greed and future fate, Scrooge has a change of heart and makes amends. From “Hear the Bells” and “Link by Link” to “A Place Called Home”, music and dance fill this timeless celebration of the holiday season. Join in the fun at “Fezziwig’s Annual Christmas Ball” by seeing this wonderful musical!

Performances will be Thanksgiving weekend Nov. 24 at 8pm and a 2pm matinee Nov. 25. Other showings will be Fridays and Saturdays Nov. 30-Dec. 8 at 8pm and Sunday matinees Dec. 1-9 at 2pm.

Tickets for performances are available by clicking the "Tickets" tab at the top of the page. Open seating in the Kellar Theater on the third floor of the building.

Murder on the Menu

After the enormous success of our first Mystery Dinner Theater we're back at it again! Walk the red carpet with us at the 37th Annual YUMMY Awards here at the Kellar Family Theater! Audience members may get a part in the show and a chance to win the coveted Golden Ladle award, given to the top chef. But something fishy is stirring and murder and mayhem are on the menu. Join us for an evening of food, fun and celebration while you try to solve the mysterious murder along the way.

This show will be pre-cast so no auditions will be held. Performance dates will be announced after "A Christmas Carol" closes.

Event will be catered by Georgetown Caterers. Full menu will be available on the ticket purchase page. Vegetarian meals are available upon request. Please call the Center for the Arts after ticket purchase to request a vegetarian meal. 

Seating is first come, first serve. Please plan accordingly. Doors open at 6:00pm for cocktails (cash bar) and the ceremony starts at 7pm.

Murder on the Menu is written by Kate & JJ Musgrove and produced with permission from JJ Musgrove Scripts.
