2013-2014 Season

We're proud to announce the upcoming
2013-2014 season:

Southern Hospitality
By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten
Directed by Jeff Mangum

. The Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink, Honey Raye and Rhonda Lynn—are in trouble again. Fayro, TX is about to disappear from the map since the Smart Mart and rendering plant closed. Folks have been leaving town in droves. Honey Ray learns a salsa factory is looking for a new home, and as President of the local Chamber, makes outlandish promises of “Fayro Days” to impress the company rep. Fayro days includes a craft show, a pet costume parade, a beauty pageant and a Civil War Battle reenactment. All with just 15 people? Throw in Twink’s love troubles, a visit from Aunt Ivey, the “meanest woman is 12 counties”, terrorizing five year old twins and you have quite a hilarious incursion into the South. But how the Futrelle sisters and the other citizens of Fayro pull together and save their town is a testament to Southern strength and ingenuity—and a recipe for total hilarity.

The Nightingales
by Peter Quilter
Directed by Rick Reinle

It is the 1950’s when we meet the Nightingales, a theatrical family who perform more at home than on Stage. Jack is a cabaret star. His parents, Charlie and Beatrice are old Music Hall Stars, full of hilarious tales of life on the road. Maggie performs with Jack in the evenings and visits regularly to rehearse, drink tea and tell the sad story of her romantic life. The sudden arrival of the parents throws their lives into chaos. They ask to stay a “few days”. Beatrice suddenly disappears. It is not a simple family visit, but a chance for her to leave Charlie and run off to France to meet her liaison. Will anyone find true love? Are there happy endings? What do performers do when the spotlight goes out? "Comedy, satire, and a happy ending that pulls out all the stops" - The Express

Guilty Conscience
by Richard L. Levinson and William Link
Directed by Teresa Wentzel

A brilliant and ruthless criminal attorney plots to kill his wife and tests each scenario in the courtroom of his mind. He creates an imaginary prosecutor and pits himself against his alter ego in a series of witty, sometimes hostile exchanges. Again and again he is frustrated, unable to formulate the ultimate alibi. He is shocked when he learns his wife and someone else are simultaneously planning to kill him. “The playwrights have a dandy time manipulating us into believing one thing, then switch on the lights and merrily exclaim, ‘Surprise” .. Wonderful dialogue and satiric jabs at criminal justice.” Miami Sun Sentinal
