A comedy by Marshall Karp.
This hilarious play pits a father-in-law against a mother in a comedic succession of squabbles. Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not so happy Abe, Jerry’s curmudgeon of a father-in-law. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry’s mother Mildred also needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can’t stand each other. One funny confrontation after another ensues until the heart-warming finale. “A surefire, fun filled hit.” – WEEI Radio, Boston
The Drowsy Chaperone
Music & lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar.
When a die hard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce. This loving send up of the Jazz Age musical features one show-stopping song and character after another. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs and an intoxicated chaperone and you have an evening of madcap delight!
Conceived by Rick Lewis.
It’s the 1950s and these four singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana are making their national television debut on Dumont Television Network’s Spotlight on Music. Enjoy spending time with Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl and Donna as they pay tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes and remember what Sunday night television was like on your 12 inch black and white screen! “The happiest night in town!” – NY Daily News

A comedy by Michael Frayn.
Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue and an errant herring, all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
