2021 – 2022 Season

100 Lunches: A Gourmet Comedy

Successful mystery playwright Chuck Reynolds has had his plays lauded by all critics except Charity Starr. When she shows up at his home and has the unmitigated gall to ask his expert help in writing a play of her own, Chuck fiendishly insists that their teacher/pupil sessions be held over lunch with Charity footing the bill at the most expensive restaurants in New York City. Lunatic waiters provide a uniquely hilarious touch to these meetings. Love blossoms despite the scheming of Chuck’s amorous neighbor. Charity’s play opens on Broadway and she finds out what it’s like to be a target for all her critical confreres. Non stop fun, romance, and explosive hilarity make this an ideal show for the entire family.

Noises Off

Michael Frayn’s Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines!

The Unsinkable Molly Brown

Before she survived the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912, Margaret “Molly” Brown was already a dominant force to be reckoned with. From humble beginnings outside of Hannibal, Missouri, young Molly Tobin made her way to Leadville, Colorado. With her headstrong charm and never-give-in spunk, Molly convinces local saloon owner Christmas Morgan to give her a job singing and playing piano. While at the Saddle Rock Saloon, Molly meets Johnny “Leadville” Brown. He falls madly in love with her, and will do anything to marry her. But there is just one problem: Molly is determined to land a rich husband in Denver. So Johnny sets out to convince Molly that they are destined for each other, and after building her a cabin (complete with a room for her father and a brass bed), Molly finally admits that she loves him and they get married. Even though Molly believes that she settles for love, the couple strikes it rich with Johnny’s mine. They pack off to Denver, destined to be a part of the sophisticated elite. Even though Molly has the wealth, she doesn’t yet have the charm of the stuffy socialites; on a trip to Europe, Molly’s infectious zest for life attracts international nobility and royalty. But even though Molly is moving up in sophistication, she is leaving her husband behind, and must figure out which dream is more important: love or money. The Unsinkable Molly Brown is a rollicking musical with Meredith Willson’s signature sound and vivacious characters, true entertainment for audiences of all ages.
