Our Town   (Drama)

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre — die. This play was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Rehearsal for Murder   (Mystery)
October 21 - 30, 2016
Author: Adapted by D. D. Brooke  |  Director: Terri Duffield

This is a thrilling "theatrical" mystery in which our theater becomes the set for the play. The playwright turns on the stage work lights and prepares for the first reading of his new play. The actors, producer, director and others connected with the show come onto the stage, and under their humorous (and utterly real) theatrical talk, tension grows. We discover that everyone connected with this play was involved with another play by the same playwright. At its opening night, exactly a year ago and in this same theater, the beautiful leading lady, who was also the playwright's fiancée, was murdered! As these people start with the new play, startling connections to the murder begin to unfold.
