2016-2017 Season


“Barefoot in the Park”
Sept. 30, Oct. 1, 7 & 8 at 8 p.m.; Oct. 2, 9 at 2 p.m.

This romantic comedy focusing on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges. Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy! Written by Neil Simon, Directed by George Lyon


“Rabbit Hole”
Dec. 2, 3, 9 & 10 at 8 p.m.; Dec. 4 & 11 at 2 p.m.

Becca and Howie Corbett have a picture perfect family life in the suburbs of New York until a random, tragic accident takes the life of their four-year old son. Soon after, Becca’s younger, irresponsible sister, Izzy, announces that she is pregnant: there will now be a new child in the family. As Becca and Howie grow apart, Becca’s mother, Nat, badgers Becca about her grieving process, and Jason, the young driver who killed their son, continually shows up to ask forgiveness, the group is on a bumpy road to healing with no road map in sight. Rabbit Hole delves into the complexity of a family navigating deep grief, and learning what it means to live a fruitful life when things fall apart. Written by David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Nicholas Priore


“Steel Magnolias”
March 3, 4, 10 & 11 at 8 p.m.; March 5 & 12 at 2 p.m.

This comedy–drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana is set in Truvy’s beauty salon, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few sarcastic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy with the realization of their mortality, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. Written by Robert Harling. Directed by Rick Vroman


“Black Tie”
May 5, 6, 12 & 13 at 8 p.m.; May 7 & 14 at 2 p.m.

An engaging comedy about the generational shifts in the subset of humanity examines manners and morals. Father of the groom, Curtis, simply wants to make a memorable toast. But before he is able to raise his glass, he must defend the time-honored ways of his past, including his attire. Cultures clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair. Written by A. R. Gurney, Directed by David Stritmater
