A Christmas Carol (Musical)  //  December 7 - 21, 2023
Brimming with music and dance, love and laughter, and spectacular special effects, it’s no wonder the critics have called it “THE Christmas Carol to see in the Bay Area.” Join the thousands who make this theatrical event a part of their annual holiday traditions.


Every Brilliant Thing (Play)  //  January 6 - 28, 2024
If you were to make a list of things that make life worth living, what would be at the top? Ice cream? Family? The even-numbered Star Trek films? Who would you share your list with? For our character in this uplifting solo performance, it’s their mother. This surprising and immersive theatrical experience openly discusses depression, mental illness, and suicide. With poignant humor and joy, Every Brilliant Thing takes us on a journey through grief, healing, falling in love, and (re)discovering all that life has to give. You’ll be part of the story, with opportunities for warm, fun audience participation.

Mystic Pizza (Musical)  //  Opens February 15, 2024
Based on the beloved 1988 MGM rom-com, Mystic Pizza is a new musical about three working-class girls who navigate the complexities of life, love and family in a small-town pizza joint. The infectious score features megahits of the 80s and 90s, from "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" to "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."

The Great Leap (Play)  //  Opens March 16, 2024
When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, the game is a chance to claim personal victories on and off the court. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as a pivotal moment in history collides with the action in the arena. Driven by rapid-fire dialogue, this perceptive new play explores the cultural and political risks of raising your voice and standing your ground.

Caberet (Musical)  //  Opens May 25, 2024
In this provocative, multiple Tony Award-winning musical, the euphoria of free expression, new relationships, and the seedy nightclub scene slowly fades away against the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party. An ominous and violent situation emerges; some remain oblivious or apathetic, while others sound the alarm or flee. With grit, dance, and a highly celebrated musical score, Cabaret ultimately proclaims, “it can happen here.”

Spontaneous Soap (Improv)  //  Opens July 18, 2024
Jilted lovers, bitter brothers, scheming sisters, faithless husbands, vengeful matriarchs, criminal kingpins, chronic amnesia, inexplicable comas, babies switched at birth, long-lost brothers returned from the dead, and shockingly effective reconstructive surgeries stream onto stage like sands through the hourglass in Synergy Theater’s hysterical homage to the television soap opera. Will the hapless inhabitants of Crustacean Cove solve their problems, work out their issues, and finally discover the identity of that mysterious stranger before their time runs out or will the answer to that and other spine-tingling questions just have to wait until the next exciting episode? Find out at this completely improvised – and completely hysterical – daytime drama, made up on the spot and all based on your suggestions.
