2016 Theater Season

Pirates! The Musical

March 12th - 13th

“We're off to sail the rollicking sea, pirates all are we!” But ARRRR, and shiver me timbers!


There's a stowaway on board! Perhaps the King of the High “Cs” will know what to do.


Join this salty crew of colorful scallywags when Bluebeard, Yellowbeard, Whitebeard, Purplebeard - well, you get the picture - along with the No Beards hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail for a mighty adventure.


April 29th - May 30th 

The eternal struggle of the rebel against the inflexible rules and regulations of the ’establishment’ is more than entertaining...  it creates even greater awareness of the worth of the individual in today’s impersonal society.  These values have garnered awards for Peg Kehret and this thoroughly engrossing play. 


The Happy Hollow Rest Home brings together a variety of delightful characters, all of whom want more from life than their restricted existence allows.  When 83 year-old Clara begins taking hula lessons, holding seances and sending out for pepperoni pizza, the other residents are overjoyed...  and the manager is dismayed.  Simply set in Clara’s room, the play adroitly combines with wisdom as a young aide, a lawyer and a policeman join forces to ensure that Happy Hollow’s group spirit is allowed to grow. 


From the hilarious poker party to the touching final scene, this play offers charm, insight and heart-warming humor.

Once Upon A Mattress

July 29th - 31st 

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise!


Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?


Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Duck, Duck, Shoot!

October 21st - 23rd
