Anatomy of Gray

by By Jim Leonard, Jr.

Award-winning author Jim Leonard, Jr. describes his play, Anatomy of Gray, as "a children's story for adults." When June's father dies, she prays for a healer to come to the small town of Gray so that no one will ever suffer again. The next thing she knows, there's a tornado and a man in a balloon blows into town claiming to be a doctor. At first, the new doctor cures anything and everything, but soon the town's preacher takes ill with a mysterious plague. And then the plague begins to spread. Set in Indiana during the late 1800s, Anatomy of Gray deals with death, loss, love, and healing in a unique coming-of-age story.

You Can’t Take It with You
Holiday Radio Play and Dinner Theatre

By Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman

Eccentric Grandpa Vanderhof and his wacky family, the Sycamores, have been happily living their zany lives in his house by Columbia University in New York for many years. Their hobbies include collecting snakes, building fireworks in the basement, writing a myriad of plays that never get published, and taking ballet lessons. But when practical young Alice Sycamore becomes engaged to her company’s Vice President Tony Kirby, the Vanderhof/Sycamore clan must straighten up to meet the new in-laws. Disaster ensues when the Kirbys arrive at the wrong time and, despite the best laid plans, see Alice’s family in all of its crazy glory. It isn’t until Grandpa’s wise speech to Mr. Kirby about the importance of living life to the fullest that the two families find a way to accept each other, and love conquers all. You Can’t Take It With You is a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy.

Buffet Dinner 6:00 p.m., Curtain 7:00 p.m.

Red Herring

by Michael Hollinger 

Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. Red Herring is a romance, a spy thriller, and a sharp satire of the anti-Communist hysteria of the fifties. We follow three seemingly unrelated couples as they face their own romantic and political crises on the rocky road to true love: A seasoned FBI man wooing an equally seasoned police detective; Senator McCarthy's daughter and her crack nuclear physicist fiancée; and, a Boston boarding-house matron and her Russian boyfriend. An engaging romp that takes on some serious issues, Red Herring is a hilarious spoof of film noir, screwball comedy, Commie panic, and 1950s social mores.

February 13-16 and 20-23
Thursday-Saturday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 2:00 p.m.


Seascape.jpg

Seascape

 By Edward Albee

On a deserted stretch of beach, a middle-aged couple relaxes after a picnic lunch and converses idly about home, family, and their life together. She sketches; he naps. Then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures, a pair of lizards from the depths of the ocean, with whom they engage in a fascinating dialogue. The emotional and intellectual reverberations of this bizarre conversation will linger in the heart and the mind long after the play has ended. Winner of the Pulitzer Price for Best Drama.

April 16-19 and 23-26
Thursday-Saturday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 2:00 p.m.
