Lend Me A Tenor
by Ken Ludwig

February 21, 22, 28 & March 1, 14, 15, 2014

Winner! 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards
Nominee! 2010 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play

Lend Me a Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

“One of two great farces by a living writer.” - The New York Times

Never Too Late
by Sumner Arthur Long

May 2, 3, 9, 10, 15, 16, & 17, 2014


This Broadway hit is about a married man in his fifties who suddenly learns he's becoming a father again. His last child, a girl, was born 24 years ago and, considering the boob she married, he finds the prospect of another unthinkable. His daughter and son-in-law live with him; she gets up for breakfast at lunchtime and he is curiously addicted to solitaire. It's not only the impending birth that startles him; his previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law. There's to be a nursery, a new bath, and she's to have her own checking account. Such dour capitulation you'll never see again.

"Good old fashioned domestic farce... with lots and lots of laughter." - New York Daily News

 

Auditions: February 24, 25, 2014 - parts for 6 men & 3 women

Steel Magnolias
By Robert Harling


July 18, 19, 25, 26, 31, & August 1 & 2, 2014

A first play which met with immediate critical and popular acceptance in its premier production by New York's WPA Theatre. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.

"Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue…The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving." —NY Daily News

"…a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked picture of eccentricity in the small-town South…Robert Harling is a new voice in the theatre and the qualities of STEEL MAGNOLIAS suggest he may be an important one."
— Drama-Logue.

"…suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy." —NY Post

 

Auditions: May 20 & 21, 2014 - Parts for 6 women.

The Perfect Wedding
By Robin Hawdon

November 14, 15, 21, & 22, &  December 4, 5, & 6, 2014

An appalling situation.  A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. What's more an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can't remotely remember even having been introduced to. Worse - during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girl friend. Then the problem is that the best man’s real girl friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride's parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act, the chaos reaches nuclear proportions!
The play has provoked waves of laughter in literally hundreds of productions around Europe and across America, and is due to be made into a Hollywood film. It is that rare combination - a riotous comedy and a touching love story at the same time.

"Laughs abound in the American premiere...It all works out in the end, but not before playgoers have aching sides." - Wisconsin Advocate

 

Auditions: September 16 & 17, 2014 - Parts for 4 women & 2 men.
