Considered one of the most influential musicals of the 20th century, Show Boat combined the talents of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II to tell the story of three generations of show folk on the Cotton Blossom floating theatre down "Ol' Man River." Based on the novel "Show Boat" by Edna Ferber, it is a celebration of family and the love affair people have had with "theatre folk." With such memorable tunes as "Cap'n Andy's Ballyhoo" and "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man," this epic musical spans over 40 years in the lives, loves and heartbreaks of Magnolia, Gaylord, Julie and the rest of the Hawks' extended family.

Monday-Friday showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Sunday's showtime is 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling (205) 348-3400 or visiting
