aChristmasStoryA Christmas Story – Adapted by Philip Grecian
Directed by Bruce Allen
Dec. 2 – 18

Back by popular demand, this beloved Christmas movie is magnificently brought to life in Philip Grecian’s adaptation of Jean Shepherd’s ‘A Christmas Story’. The story follows 9-year-old Ralphie in his quest to get a “legendary official Red Ryder 200 shot carbine action range model air rifle with a compass and this thing, which tells time, built right into the stock”. But he is only left with the same answer from his mother, his teacher and even the department store Santa Claus ---“You’ll shoot your eye out”. Memorable characters come to life on stage in this holiday classic.

A holiday family favorite comes to life on stage.

Directed by Shane Skinner and Michelle Kyle
January 20 - Feb. 5

Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lonely lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, visits with her new boy toy, Spike, and invites them to a nearby costume party. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. Written by the author of Beyond Therapy and The Actor’s Nightmare, Christopher Durang puts themes and characters from the plays of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov into this witty comedy. However, one does not need to be Chekhov buff to fully enjoy this hilarious yet heartfelt show!

theRainMakerThe Rainmaker – by N. Richard Nash
Directed by Diane Nichols
March 3 – 19

In the time of the Great Depression in America’s rural West, a scorching drought has created a desperate situation for the Curry family. The future of their cattle ranch is in question, but even worse, the two brothers can’t seem to find a husband for their rather plain sister Lizzy who is precariously close to being a spinster. A charming con man, Bill Starbuck, struts into town, promising rain for a mere $100. He unexpectedly brings more than rain for Lizzy and her family. “The Rainmaker” by N. Richard Nash is a delightful romantic comedy that has been translated into 40 languages, made into a hit film, and revived several times on Broadway.

theFantasticksThe Fantasticks – Lyrics by Tom Jones, Music by Harvey Schmidt
Directed by Penny King
April 14 – May 7

The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow".

There's always time to remember this romantic fable about a boy, a girl, their two fathers and a love that grows with each season.

theCuriousSavageThe Curious Savage – John Patrick
Directed by Kenneth Vibert
June 9 – June 25

Mrs. Savage just received in immense fortune from her late-husband, but her step-children want it, so they commit her to a sanitarium to try to 'bring her to her senses.' In there, Mrs. Savage befriends a few patients that help her confuse and distract her step-children away from the inheritance. In this wonderful comedy, you will be left with a feeling that the neglected virtues of kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in a world that seems at times motivated only by greed and dishonesty.

Between psychiatric patients and politicians, you'll start to wonder who the real crazy ones are!
