The larger-than-life football legend inspired players like none before. The plays follows the coach for a week in the Green Bay Packers 1965 championship season, the year before the Super Bowl came to be. A reporter attempts to discover Lombardi's secret by trying to get some well-known players to talk. They won't but the coach's wife Marie does and gives us a view of the master, rarely seen. Through biting conflict, we see the teacher, coach and leader in a vulnerable new light and come to understand how perfectly imperfect he really was.

A big girl with a big dream brings a big change her corner of the world. Tracy Turnblad's passion is dancing and her black friends teach her the moves to take a local TV dance show by storm. She ruffles a lot of feathers—that she thinks needed ruffling—and this quirky, plus-sized girl becomes a star whose goal is bigger than her bouffant: to look past the color of people's skin which, in the early 60s was no small task. Winning 8 Tony Awards, this bigger than life musical is overflowing with contagious songs, unexpected charm, and pure joy. April 7, 8, 9 at 7:30 p.m. and April 10 at 2 p.m.
