|GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER
A comedy/drama by Todd Kreidler.
September 15-October 1, 2023
A progressive white couple’s proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance, they quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family – especially in 1967. But they’re surprised to find they aren’t the only ones with concerns about the match – his parents are as well. With humor and insight, “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” begins a conversation sure to continue at dinner tables long after the curtain comes down.
A musical comedy with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, and book by Gordon Greenburg and Chad Hodge.
November 3-19, 2023. Purchase Tickets
Jim leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut where he quickly discovers life isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend, Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love? Featuring favorite Berlin songs including “Blue Skies,” “You’re Easy to Dance With,” “Easter Parade” and “White Christmas.”
|SOME ENCHANTED EVENING
Music by Richard Rogers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein, I.
May 3-19, 2024. Purchase Tickets
The songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in elevators and supermarkets. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective musicals and we teach them to our children. While our five performers are given the opportunity to explore the songs with their own styles, it offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits – truly some enchanted evening!
Includes such favorites as “If I Loved You,” “In My Own Little Corner,” “The Sound of Music,” “Shall We Dance?” and “I Can’t Say No.”
|NEVER TOO LATE
A comedy by Summer Arthur Long.
July 19-Aug 4, 2024. Purchase Tickets
This good old-fashioned domestic farce is about a married man in his fifties who suddenly learns he’s becoming a father again. His last child, a girl, was born 24 years ago and, considering the fool she married, he finds the prospect of another unthinkable. Plus, his previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law. There’s to be a nursery, a new bath, and she’s to have her own checking account. Such dour capitulation you’ll never see again. Plain, simple and old-fashioned laughter!
