Faith County

Stalag 17

by Mark Landon Smith

by Donald Beven & Edmond Trzcinski

a comedy directed by Jim Miller

World War II comedy/drama directed by John Hesselberg

Faith County, the prequel to An Evening of Culture, returns to our stage the colorful residents of Mineola, where there's stiff competition at this year's county fair.

A tense-yet-funny drama about Allied prisoners in a German POW camp. An escaped American POW sabotages a train, and his fellow POWs turn against each other trying to find the spy in their midst.

Jenny Saint Joan,
A Play of Joan of Arc in One Act

Searching for Eden:
The diaries of Adam and Eve

by Norman Allen

by James Still

a one-act comedy/drama directed by Ian Tubman

a romantic comedy love story

VTG’s entry in the January 2009 MTA Festival

directed by Jeff Hensley

Joan of Arc is depicted as a normal adolescent facing tough choices about her future. Young Jenny is torn between the two men in her life: the peasant Colin who offers her love, and the playful Archangel Michael who offers her glory as the savior of France.

Adapted from Mark Twain, we see the First Couple as they meet in the Garden of Eden, then in present time as Adam books a vacation package to present day Eden (now an upscale resort!). Searching for Eden is about the pleasures and terrors of knowing one person—and being known by one person—for a long, long time.

Shows: December 12-14, 2008

Gold in the Hills 2009

The Fantasticks

by J. Frank Davis

book and lyrics by Tom Jones, music by Harvey Schmidt

an 1890s melodrama

a musical comedy romance

produced by Mike Calnan & Walter Johnston

produced by Jim Shirley, directed by Larry Gawronski

Gold in the Hills, the Guinness Book of World Records longest-running melodrama, has played since 1936. Set in the 1890s, it features a relentless hero, a winsome heroine, a ruthless villain, and the wilder side of city life in the infamous New York Bowery.

The timeless, classic tale of lovers found and lost. A simple fable that tells an allegorical story concerning two fathers who put a wall between their two houses to ensure their children fall in love, because they know that children always do what their parents forbid.
