Always a Bridesmaid

June 3 - 13

by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten

The perfect comedy for anyone who has been a bride or groom…and anyone who is determined to be neither! In this hysterical comedy, four high school girlfriends made a vow to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow!  Hop on this marriage-go-round for the laugh-out-loud journey of Libby Ruth, Charlie, Deedra and Monette as they commit to the notion that while careers, waistlines and marriages may disappear, real friendships last a lifetime!

by Anthony Dodge and Marcia Milgrom Dodge; adapted from a novel by Nicholas Meyer 

REGIONAL PREMIERE!

A despicable theatre critic has been murdered and there's no end to the list of suspects!  Young aspiring Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw entices his good friends Holmes and Watson to take on the case.  As they cross swords with the most famous literary luminaries of the day including Bram Stoker, Gilbert & Sullivan, Henry Irving and a young H. G. Wells, Holmes comes face-to-face with his own celebrity.  This rollickingly funny and very theatrical who-dun-it has been called "a dashingly funny play...two hours of sophisticated fun!" by NY Newsday.  A great night out for the whole family!

Miracle on South Division Street

August 12 - 22

by Tom Dudzick 

A "divine" family comedy based on actual events!  Clara Nowak and her three grown children have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop.  Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowak's 20-foot commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble.  But when daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write a play about the miracle, a long-ago deathbed confession hilariously unravels the legend and raises important family questions.  The answers are touching, heartfelt and hysterical!
