The 39th Season

All My Sons

“You don’t realize how people can hate, they can hate so much they’ll tear the world to pieces.” 

During the the Second World War, Joe Keller and Steve Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts which caused the deaths of many men, while Keller went free and made a lot of money. This catastrophe, the love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, and the bitterness of George Deever all combine with tragic intensity in this emotionally-charged drama.

Performance dates:
April 26, 27 & May 3, 4 @ 7pm

Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!

“Grace is found in both victory and defeat, for it is through our challenges that we grow.”

Let us transport you to medieval England in the year 1255. We invite you to observe the issues youth faced at that time – every bit as relevant today – pressure to perform, being misunderstood, prejudice, feelings of love, loss, and being awkward, poverty and wealth, and gender roles.

Performance dates:
August 16, 17 & 23, 24 @ 7pm
August 18 & 25 @ 3pm

“I don’t get it. Didn’t my suitcase, being so much lighter than yours, give you a clue that maybe you were taking the wrong suitcase?”

Two difficult, single people, Phyllis and Bradley, both trying to heal from their respective disappointing relationships, get their luggage mixed up at the airport. After a very disagreeable first encounter, they decide to help each other get over their heartaches through a forced friendship. See them discover that, while they may be too difficult for everyone else in the world, they are perfect for each other.

Performance Dates:
October 18, 19 & 25, 26 @ 7pm
October 20 & 27 @ 3pm

A Visit from St. Nicholas

“I loved it and I’m no child!”

On Christmas Eve, 1822, Clement Clarke More’s house is not as quiet as a mouse. His children await the arrival of St. Nicholas. Father has written a poem for them, but as a distinguished professor, he fears that knowledge being made known. So, he burns the poem. Heartbroken, the children unite to save it through a riotous enactment, convincing their father that it should be shared with children everywhere.

Performance Dates:
December 6, 7 & 13, 14 @ 7pm
December 8 & 15 @ 3pm
