The Fox on the Fairway

June 8 - 18

“Golf and sex are the only things you can enjoy without being good at them!” Come join the “teed off” gang down at the Quail Valley Country Club as they prepare to take on their archrivals, the Crouching Squirrels, in the Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament.  With a sizable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst romantic shenanigans, mistaken identities, a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters, and an exploding vase.  This regional premiere is a charming madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair…with golf!


West Side Story

One of the greatest musicals of all time in its CRT debut! In this breathtaking musical, two rival gangs struggle for control of their west side New York City neighborhood. Amidst the chaos, star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria find themselves wrenched between their worlds. Beautiful, passionate, with shades of violence and heartache, this innovative adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet still dazzles after more than fifty years! The treasured songs Something’s Coming, Tonight, I Feel Pretty, Maria andAmerica have become classics in the American Songbook.  Don’t miss it!

A Chorus Line

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and celebrating its 40th anniversary, this dazzling musical tells the story of the unsung heroes of the Broadway stage - the dedicated, talented and overworked chorus dancers. A nine-time Tony-Award winner, this musical and dance spectacular brings to life the dream, the thrill and the hope of the Broadway audition. With one captivating song and dance after another, this show is also a brilliant metaphor for all human aspiration.

Agatha Christie's

Cards on the Table

August 3 - 13

This rarely produced Christie classic is sure to please the mystery lover in all of us! Mr. Shaitana is a strange and wealthy collector of various kinds of art. One evening he invites Superintendent Battle of Scotland Yard and crime novelist Adriane Oliver to a dinner party to view his latest “collection”: four people who have committed murder and gotten away with it. But during a game of bridge with the group, Shaitana himself is daringly murdered!  Battle sets out to solve the crime and must catch the murderer before they lay their cards on the table for the final time!


The Kitchen Witches

Imagine Martha Stewart and Rachel Ray in a knockdown, drag-outBattle of the Cooking Stars! Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two low-budget cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called “The Kitchen Witches”, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's son, who is also the TV show’s producer, tries to keep them on track, but it's a losing battle – especially when the show becomes a ratings smash!

Then in Act Two, jump forward in time as the girls reunite to perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade as they sing “current” hits Leader of the Pack, Son of a Preacher Man, Rescue Me and I Only Want To Be With You!  Featuring over 30 classic hits, this show is a funny musical trip down memory lane!
