FEBRUARY 2017

7 Keys To Baldpate

7 KEYS TO BALDPATE


(February 17 to 26; production closed)

We had tremendous fun with our new adaptation of George M. Cohan's mystery-farce.  Lots of thrills and chills and spills -- and a show that kept the audience guessing all along.

"You fooled us!"

"I never saw the ending coming.  And, then I never saw the other ending coming!"

A big cast, but we brought in some new faces and some veterans to make it a strong and entertaining production.

DECEMBER 2016
A Christmas Carol 2016

CHARLES DICKENS'S
A CHRISTMAS CAROL


Back in 1997, we debuted our own musical, choral adaptation of Dickens's Christmas classic.


The last time we mounted it was 2005, so maybe it's time to bring it back.


It's a "musical story theatre" -- we use the actual text of Dickens's book, rather than "improving" upon it with our own script.


It's funny, surprising, entertaining, delightfully musical, beautifully moving and a great way to ignite the holiday spirit(s).


With a cast of nearly 20 and a boisterous, fun-filled staging, it's true holiday entertainment.

The Tin Woman - April 2017

THE TIN WOMAN


April 21 to 30

A new play by an emerging author.  A heart transplant recipient goes on a trip to find the family of her donor -- and finds her heart, too.  A comedy-drama, or drama-comedy, either way, it's critically acclaimed.

We've got a strong cast with some new faces and a lot of energy going into this one.
Join us and see what the fuss is about.

THE DECORATOR


JUNE 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 8:00 p.m.
June 11, 18 2:00 p.m.

When you're having an affair with your best friend's husband and she starts to catch on, what else can you do except enlist the aid of the hapless decorator who has come in to redo the study?  It helps that he's not only a part-time decorator, but a part-time actor, too.
Donald Churchill's fun three-hander is a great way to kick off the summer.

Audition: POSTPONED pending arrival of scripts

(yes, there's a week between the two runs.)

Three plays about small things.
Susan Glaspell's Trifles is one of the seminal mystery plays of the last century; George Grossmith's tiny Tea Cups is a refreshing as a nice cuppa; and Samuel Beckett's Krapps' Last Tape is an engrossing look at a man's life -- with a cast of a man and a tape recorder.

Aristophanes' 2400 year old anti-war comedy,
in a brand-new, musical version.
It's still as funny, sexy, silly and thought-provoking
as it was in Athens in 411 B.C.

The Greeks have been warring for twenty years.
The Greek women go on strike:
no nooky until the men stop the war.
The men refuse to give in --
no matter how hard it gets.

CAST: lots of both, but mostly women
Script available soon.
