What’s on at freeFall…
November 25 – December 24
The Night Before
by Matthew McGee
original music and arrangements by Michael Raabe
freeFall’s hit holiday show returns with an updated romp for 2022. There’s no place like home for the holidays. It’s snowing in sunny Florida when a group of friends and a surly house cat named Stephen Sondheim gather around the piano for a night of fun, music and games. Alternately hilarious and heartwarming, The Night Before is delightfully reminiscent of classic holiday TV specials, yet refreshingly modern in its depiction of one fabulous night with the family you choose.

The Mirror Has Two Faces
Movies with Matthew

They’re two people with almost nothing in common, but Fate in the form of a personal ad and a meddling sister brings them together.

Preempted from our 19/20 season, this much-anticipated world-premiere musical by freeFall’s artistic director and music director finally takes its turn as we close our 22/23 season. This original musical explores the genius of L. Frank Baum and his complicated relationship with his most famous creation, the Land of Oz. This is the story of a dreamer at the dawn of a new age who reinvented the fairy tale in a distinctly American way, painting an idealized and magical vision of a world where witches might be good, and what you’re seeking is already inside you…
