A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love and relationships. Four sets of characters: Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they've never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; and Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress that looks like a parachute.

Making God Laugh

by Sean Grennan

Directed by Shiela Kaplow - email
Stage Manager - Gloria Heidenreich

Performances: July 7-8-9 and 14-15-16

Woody Allen once said, "If you want God to laugh, tell him your plans!"
This play is both heartwarming and hilarious, in the style of last year's hit "37 Postcards".
Making God Laugh follows a typical American family as the parents become empty-nesters and the children see their plans and dreams evolve as they gather together through 30 years of holiday celebrations. We rejoice at their victories and ache at their defeats, all the while cheering, laughing and shedding tears with them at life's bumpy road in a celebration of life in the best tradition of theatrical comedy. PG-13

Welcome to our 2017 season! Check our shows page for information on auditions, casting, rehearsal and performance dates.

Show times are 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday with a matinee at 4pm on Sunday.

Old Church Theater has presented over 30 years of summer productions geared for family entertainment. The actors are local residents from various backgrounds and some have gone on to make a career in the theater world. The theater is open to anyone wishing to act, direct, work backstage, help with set design, ticket sales and more!

We love to share our knowledge about theater craft and invite you to come and share in the fun and work, meet new friends and learn a bit about community theater.


Old Church Theater is now a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation. It has taken us a year to get there. What does this mean to you?

The biggest change for our patrons and supporters is that any gifts or donations you make to Old Church Theater can be tax deductible (depending on your tax status - consult your accountant or tax preparer). If you are interested in donating, please contact us. You may make an unrestricted donation or you may specify a restricted purpose for your donation. Ask us how!

It also means that we are now eligible to apply for grants and other funding sources that were not available to us before. So we'll be tackling projects that were beyond our means until now.
