Presenting Our 2011-2012 Season...

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

It's a Wonderful Life

a musical comedy featuring the songs of Neil Sedaka
directed by Daniel Vernon

from the film by Frank Capra
a drama directed by Andrea Fairchild and Jeff Hensley

Set at a Catskills resort in 1960, this is the sweetly comic story of Lois and Marge, two friends from Brooklyn in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. The score showcases 18 Neil Sedaka classics, including “Where the Boys Are,” “Sweet Sixteen,” “Calendar Girl,” and, of course, the chart-topping title song.

The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him — by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born — that his has been, after all, a wonderful life.

Forever Plaid

3rd-Annual 10-Minute Play Project

written, originally directed, choreographed by Stuart Ross
a musical directed by Paul Ballard

En route to their first big gig at the airport Hilton cocktail bar, Fusill-Lounge, in their cherry-red 1954 Mercury convertible, the members of Forever Plaid were slammed broadside by a school bus filled with eager Catholic teens and killed instantly. The teens were on their way to witness the Beatles make their U.S. television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show, and miraculously escaped uninjured. It is at the moment when their careers and lives ended that the story of Forever Plaid begins. Features 21 songs.

There will only be one opportunity to see these original works, written and rehearsed in a 24-hour period by the area's best talent.

Auditions: October 1 & 2, 2011
