​Along with "John Alden", "Mr. Hyde" and the rest in that play, you'll meet among others: Don Cutter, who runs a "nuthouse" on the side, his lovely bride, Lucille, arch villain Amos Burke, and Wing, that erudite quotation spouting Chinese who's been boning up on Charlie Chan. There are thrills and loads of laughter awaiting you---and a murder too---as old meanie Burke gets himself killed off. Wing finally unmasks the murderer, but not before the audience is left limp with excitement and laughter.

Half & Half​

Comedy by James Sherman

April 20-22 & 27-29                                                     Target Audience: Adult


​Half and Half explores marriages past and present. In the first act, set at a breakfast in 1970, the husband reads the newspaper and the homemaker wife fries the eggs. In act two, at a breakfast taking place on a morning in 2005, the career-minded wife reads the paper and the stay-at-home husband cooks the frittata. We get a comic look at how husbands and wives accept and reject their roles, and how their roles have changed. An interesting parallel is created between the two generations, making for a very poignant comedy about marriage. Filled with wit and biting humor.

Gold, Frankincense, Christmas Tree Ornaments, and Myrrh

A Christmastime fantasy for the whole family by Thomas Ohlson

December 14, 15 at 8:00 PM & 16, 17 at 2:30 PM and 8:00 PM


Written specifically for Christmas, it is based on both the traditional Christmas stories and modern inventions, tells of the birth and boyhood of Christ, and of his growing awareness of his destiny. It also tells of a would-be fourth wise man and his comic attempts to capitalize on the coming of the Messiah. It is a charming, novel play on an ancient theme. Especially timed for the Christmas season, the play emphasizes that the Christmas message is being lost through materialism, commercialism, and flimsy extraneousness.

Look Who's Laughing​

Comedy by John Randall

June 8-10 & 15-17                                                Target Audience: Teen/Adult


​​Henry Crocker's family has long been in dread of his tantrums which are worse now due to business reverses. So when Jed Tracy visits the family, Henry's long suffering wife sees a chance for action. Jed is Henry's idol who saved his life in the war and was his commanding officer. She gets Jed to bet Henry he can't go for a week without losing his temper. Of course, everything goes wrong that week---enough to make anyone blow his stack. A comic and rollicking look at learning self-control.
