Flemming, An American Thriller by Sam Brobick
Sept 25 – Oct 12 Directed by Charles L. Harman
One day, Henry Flemming arrives home to announce he has sold his lucrative brokerage firm to become a detective. On his very first case, and to the horror of his wife, Karen and his friends, their living room begins to fill up with dead bodies. Even though Henry keeps showing up at home every day more disheveled and beaten up, he couldn't be happier. This very funny play, by the author as last year’s “Murder at the Howard Johnson’s” is a spoof of the film noir thrillers from the 1940's and 50's.
Nov 6 – Nov 23 Directed by Bill Johnston
Four high school friends swore on the night of their Senior Prom to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. Thirty plus years later, these BFF’s are still making "the long walk" for each other to honor that vow. This rollicking tale answers the question, "Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise?” If you've ever questioned the sanity of the duo saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this hilarious play is definitely for you ... and your dearly beloved!
Ali Baba & The Forty Thieves by Dan Crocker
Dec 19 – Dec 31 Directed by Alan Watt
What would the Christmas season be without a traditional pantomime? This is the tale of Ali Baba, a poor Persian boy who wants to marry the slave girl. He can’t afford to buy her freedom. That is until he discovers the way into a secret cave holding the treasure of the evil Mustapha Leik. The path to happy-ever-after is strewn with disasters, laughter, singing – both from the cast and occasionally joined in by the audience, shouts of “He’s behind you” and an outrageous dame - Mum Baba.
Blithe Spiritby Noel Coward
Mar 5 – Mar 22 Directed by Lesley Croghan
This Noel Coward classic comedy is about novelist Charles Condomine, a re-married but haunted man (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. One problem is: only Charles can see and hear Elvira which leads to misunderstandings with his current wife, Ruth. The other problem is: Madame Arcarti can’t seem to undo whatever she did to bring Elivra back.
Ravenscroft by Don Nigro
Apr 23 – May 10 Directed by Gordon McInnis
This psychological drama is a Gothic thriller and a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening. On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women who lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft. There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet, and much more than the Inspector bargained for.
