SARAH, PLAIN AND TALL (Fall 2013)
Set in the early 1900s, this play brings to life the charming, heartwarming story of a Kansas farmer, Jacob Witting, a widower with two children, Anna and Caleb. Jacob places an ad in the newspapers seeking a wife. He receives a letter from a Sarah Wheaton of Maine who says she will visit the family for a month to see how things work out: “I will come by train. I will wear a yellow bonnet. I am plain and tall.” Narrated by Anna, reminiscing on the eve of her wedding, the story unfolds in a fascinating flashback on that often exciting, sometimes tumultuous month when Sarah and the Wittings come to know one another and learn a few things about themselves as well.
THE TRIAL OF EBENEZER SCROOGE (Christmas 2013)
A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. We relive the night in question as all of the characters from A CHRISTMAS CAROL take the stand.
LI’L ABNER (Winter 2014)
Al Capp’s world famous characters have been placed in an upbeat musical extravaganza. It is a satisfying mixture of hillbilly nonsense and sharp, critical humor that appeals to the sophisticated threatregoer as well as the child within us all. A fun-filled, foot-stomping musical taken directly from the comics, LI’L ABNER is laced with gentle satire, rib-tickling humor and a host of brash, catchy tunes.
LEADING LADIES (Spring 2014)
In this hilarious comedy, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces!
