HAPPILY EVER LAUGHTER
A Romantic Comedy by Neville J. Bryant
When Joanna Winslow finally moves out of her parents’ house, she’s too excited to notice the kind of neighborhood she’s rented into, though her Mother isn’t. Perhaps she shouldn’t be surprised when her across-the-hall neighbor winds up in her place wearing nothing but a towel and hoping to crawl out her window to get back into his own, locked apartment? With the “super,” Mr. Galetti, out of town, Joanna has little choice but to get to know her neighbor better – but how much better? Find out with us in this laugh-out-loud look at young love.
Directed by Darcey Hill Wagner

THE RAINMAKER
A Comedy/Drama by N. Richard Nash
It’s a time of drought, and no-one knows it better than the Curry family, whose livelihoods are imperiled by the lack of rain, but also for only-daughter Lizzie, for whom the drought of rain is matched by a more personal drought of love. The spellbinder who appears on the scene brings hope that changes all of their lives – and his own as well. This classic play is among America’s favorites, and was made into a film starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn.
Directed by Jeffrey Brown
Auditions February 9/10

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
A musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber
From the book of Genesis comes this story of Joseph and his coat of many colors, one of the sons of Jacob, whose life unfolds magnificently after he is sold into Egyptian slavery by his many jealous brothers. Jam-packed with the pop-style music that made Lloyd Webber among the most famous composers for Broadway, this show is guaranteed to leave you smiling and singing the songs on your way home.
Directed by Jeffrey Brown

THE CEMETERY CLUB
A Comedy by Ivan Menchell
Ida, Lucille and Doris have grown fond of the time they spend together, meeting each week for tea before heading out to visit their husbands’ gravesites, but Sam, the butcher, may be throwing a wrench into their works when he begins modestly courting one of the group. A hilarious look at some real issues in mature romance, this play, which has been called “An evening of pure pleasure that will make you glad you went to the theatre,” was turned into a popular movie starring Ellen Burstyn, Olympia Dukakis, and Dianne Ladd.
Directed by Susan Neely Balentine

THE GAME’S AFOOT
A murder-mystery-comedy by Ken Ludwig
Sub-titled “Holmes for the Holidays,” this hilarious play takes into the world of real-life actor William Gillette, a man who became world-famous for his portrayals of Sherlock Holmes. When a “real” mystery befalls Gillette and friends one blustery evening, he must put all of his skills to work to keep suspicion from falling squarely on his doting mother. As faced-paced and funny as Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo and with the added suspense of a good who-done-it, this play will be a real crowd-pleaser.
Directed by Sarah Derousseau
