The Great Gatsby

Welcome to the Jazz Age - Jay Gatsby is throwing one of his infamous parties and everyone is invited. 

In a hot summer during the Roaring Twenties, young Nick Carraway moves to West Egg, Long Island where he learns that some secrets are too dangerous to be spoken about out loud. Nick’s cousin Daisy speaks in riddles and can’t disguise the sadness in her eyes, Daisy’s husband Tom keeps disappearing to the ‘valley of ashes’ and great parties are thrown in the mansion next door but the host never shows his face. Nick quickly becomes entangled in a series of events that will change his life and of those around him, forever.

In this new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, join us as the rebellious and the carefree transport us through a story of love, vengeance and the American Dream.
