Black Coffee
Nov 3-19
A mystery by Agatha Christie. Directed by Laurie Follmer.
A physicist named Sir Claude Amory has come up with a formula for an atom bomb (Black Coffee was written in 1934!). He is poisoned (in his coffee, naturally) and Hercule Poirot is called in to solve the case. This little-known mystery will surprise and delight Christie fans.

May 4-20, 2018
A musical comedy with music by Richard Rogers, and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration is set in a Western Native American territory just after the turn of the century. The high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Featuring such well-known songs as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, People Will Say We’re in Love, The Surrey With the Fringe on Top, and I Cain’t Say No. ‘A masterpiece of musical theatre.’ – London Daily Telegraph

The Senator’s Wife
July 13-29, 2018
A romantic comedy with music by C. Robert Jones. Directed by Amber dePass.
When Louise Larraby, the charming widow of Democratic Senator Ted Larraby, agrees to marry Republican Senator Richard Townsend, the worlds of both families are turned upside down. Then, Louise is asked by the governor to fill the remainder of her late husband’s Senate term. The Senate is split 50-50 and if Louise switches parties – as Richard expects her to do – the GOP will have a majority in the Senate. What will she do? The comedic twists are full of fun, songs, and the ever-present Cupid!
