Freeport and the surrounding area offer so much to do, especially during the summer season. This summer looks to be no exception.

The 57th season kicks off with a heartwarming, upbeat comedy, The Full Monty. This show has had 10 Tony Award nominations. In this show, a group of unemployed steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decides to present a strip act at a local clubs after seeing their wives enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales.

Closing out the season is ‘Young Frankenstein,’ a hilarious comedy musical by Mel Brooks.
