Thoroughly Modern Millie   (Musical Comedy)
August 10 - 19, 2018
Author: Book by Richard Morris & Dick Scanlan  |  Director: Elinor Hasty

Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas, who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage, and the man she actually falls in love with doesn't have a dime to his name... or so he tells her. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess that audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.

October 26 - November 04, 2018
Author: Peter Gordon  |  Director: Léland Downs Karas

This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930s. The assembled cast of characters is guaranteed to delight - Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling police inspector, and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes. They are all here and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner.

The Foreigner   (Comedy)
March 02 - 11, 2018
Author: Larry Shue  |  Director: Carol Phillpotts

The scene is a hunting lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the intimate details of the minister's pretty fiancée; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a single word being said. That he does understand fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play.

Directed by Carol Phillpotts & Don Wildsmith

NOTE: THIS SHOW IS ABOUT A SERIOUS SUBJECT: RESPECT FOR OURSELVES AND FOR THOSE PEOPLE AROUND US. THE AUTHOR TURNED THIS INTO A TIMELESS CLASSIC FILLED WITH LAUGHTER AND TEARS.
