Over The River And Through The Woods

September - October 2013

Written by Joe DiPietro
Directed by Sue Lombardo

Nick is a single Italian-American from New Jersey. His main link with family is dinner every Sunday with both sets of beloved, but annoying, first generation, off-the-boat, Italian grandparents. Then he is offered his dream job, but he will have to move to Seattle, leaving family behind. None of the grandparents take this well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around, involving food, guilt, and even inviting the lovely, and single, Caitlin O’Hare, for dinner. All four grandparents as characters are a tour-de-force for the actors who portray them. A delightful romp through immigrant traditions and into the family for whom love is food.

Fox on the Fairway

 

 APRIL – MAY 2013

A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with… golf.

Move Over Mrs. Markham

by Ray Cooney and John Chapman

FEBRUARY 2013

poster

A comedy of chaos, misunderstandings, and mistaken identities becomes the setting for a tangled web of secret rendezvous in this British bedroom farce. 

The play is set in a very elegant top floor London flat, belonging to Philip and Joanna Markham who are 'supposed' to be going out for the evening. 

Philip is a straight-laced publisher of children's books, and he shares an office with his partner, Henry Lodge, on the ground floor. Philip has reluctantly agreed to let Henry borrow his apartment for the evening to 'entertain' his latest girlfriend. At the same time Joanna Markham has been persuaded by Linda Lodge to let her borrow the apartment so she too can get in on the cheating game and 'entertain' a new lover. What nobody knows is that the Interior Designer, who has been decorating the flat for the past three months, has the same plans with the European maid! 

Not surprisingly, chaos and confusion ensues as they all unknowingly converge at the same time! To further fuel the turmoil, the formidable and very conservative, Olive Harriet Smythe arrives clutching a lucrative book deal. To avoid losing this deal, Henry has to pretend to be Phillip, Linda has to pretend to be the maid, and Philip pretends to be his own (adulterous) butler.

Christmas Belles

November - December 2013

Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten
Directed by Carol Rumba

It’s Christmas time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle sisters (Frankie, Twink, and Honey Rae) are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Rae is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas program from spiraling into chaos. Things are not looking promising. Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous 27 productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity Santa Claus, played by Frankie’s long-suffering husband Dub, is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. When Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. This hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

Written by: Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc

Featuring: Larry Jacobs and Kurt Miller

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas third smallest town, where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna -- men, women, children and animals.

From radio station OKKK, Thurston Wheelis and Arlis Struvie report on the goings on in Tuna, Texas, a town with a used gun saleswoman, a judge found dead wearing a woman's swim suit, a UFO in the shape of a flying chalupa, the smut snatchers group, a wannabe cheerleader, a pack of dogs, and a mess of other homegrown specials.
