Presenting a new version of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The classic holiday film takes center stage as a heavenly new musical! George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls and watching his dreams of travel and adventure pass him by. When he hits the low point of his life, and is considering tossing it all away, help comes in the form of Guardian Angel Second Class, Clarence Oddbody, who has to find a way to help George save himself, and in the process, earn his wings.

This bright and bouncy show features a sixties-influenced score by the Hairspray team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The show is based on the 2002 film of the same name which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and follows the story of con man Frank Abagnale, Junior.

Narrated by Frank as if his story is a television special, Catch Me draws audiences in to his web of relationships with his parents, FBI agent Hanratty and eventually his girlfriend and her parents. The show manages to walk the fine line of making Frank likeable in spite of his crimes. (From the show’s first scene, we know he’ll eventually pay for his misdeeds.)

Catch Me if You Can flew onto Broadway in April 2011 and ran for over 200 performances and is now on tour throughout the US. The show received critical praise and was nominated for four Tony Awards.  Whether or not you’ve seen Steven Spielberg’s hit movie based on the same subject matter, if you enjoy a comic caper, Catch Me If You Can is the musical to see.

For the first time on the Music Guild Stage, A Chorus Line explores the inner lives and poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies, vying for a spot in a Broadway show. With music by Marvin Hamlisch, it features one powerhouse number after another. Memorable musical numbers include “What I Did for Love, “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.”

A Chorus Line was instantly recognized as a classic.  An unprecedented box office and critical hit, the musical received twelve Tony Award nominations and won nine, in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Dazzling dance and beautiful music, you won't want to miss it.

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears. It's the tale of a big green ogre, an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you have pure magic.

Special Event: Rodgers & Hammerstein's A Grand Night For Singing

The Quad City Music Guild, in partnership with the Moline Park Board, is proud to present A Grand Night for Singing, a revue. The proceeds from this production will be used for the restoration of the Prospect Park Pavilion, and other Park renovations.

Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo’s final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical.

Rodgers and Hammerstein probably never imagined ‘Shall We Dance?’ as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, ‘How do you solve a problem like Maria?’ But that’s precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque ‘I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,’ a swingin’ ‘Honeybun’ worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy ‘Kansas City’ which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.
