Five ex-wives of the deceased have all gathered at the funeral home where their former husband, Seamus, is lying in state for the visitation. The widows arrive one by one, and each one is a different personality. Each of their stories gives a different and sometimes hilarious window into their marriage to Seamus. This leads to a comedy like you have never seen! We hear five different versions from five different widows. The whole idea of it all, tells us this is going to be hilarious.

Contempt of Court
by David Landau, Nikki Stern
February 7-9 & 14-16, 2020
Dinner Theatre 7th-8th; 14th-15th
Audience Interactive Comedy
Contempt of Court is a new non-mystery interactive comedy from the inventor of the interactive dinner theater. It's a typical night at Judge Judy's Peoples Night Court where audience members become plaintiffs, defendants, witnesses and jury in some of the most outlandishly funny law suits ever to double cross the bench. This hilarious comedy spoofing of all those TV court shows, proves that some people really have a Contempt of Court. Seating is limited for the Dinner Theatre Option.
Adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall Jr. and William A. Miles Jr. From the novel by George Orwell
April 3-5 & 10-12, 2020
This authorized stage adaptation is true to the novel in which Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man’s fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching—where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory. As your cast presents the play, you will be participating in a theatrical event that is both powerful and disturbingly provocative. Orwell himself once said, “I do not believe that the kind of society I describe necessarily will arrive, but I believe that something resembling it could arrive. The moral to be drawn from the dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don’t let it happen. It depends on you.”
