Incident At Our Lady Of Perpetual Help

Sep 22, 2023 - Oct 1, 2023
Ticket – $28 (includes fees)

Incident at Our Lady of Perpetual Help by Katie Forgette

The play tells the story of the O’Sheas, a cash-challenged, Irish-Catholic family just trying to get through 1973. Linda O’Shea, our 19-year old narrator, is attempting to re-enact for the audience the most turbulent day of her life, her own, very personal Saturday Night Massacre…but her family keeps interrupting, insisting on telling their side of the story. The 1970s was a time of old school living. No Facebook, no tweets, no texting. A time when public ridicule in a close-knit, hermetically sealed Catholic parish was the ultimate nightmare. When Linda’s mother leave it to Linda to tell her younger sister about the birds and the bees, the bawdy conversation is somehow overheard by the parish priest…and Father Lovett is not amused. He sets out to confront the family about “the corruption of their eldest daughter’s soul.”

The Thanksgiving Play

Nov 10, 2023 - Nov 19, 2023
Ticket – $28 (includes fees)

The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse

High school drama teacher Logan is desperate to save her career. Always ready to rock the boat, she is now facing a petition that calls for her termination. So she pursued several grants ranging from education to cultural awareness to bring together three actors that will devise a play about the first Thanksgiving. Or Native American Heritage Month. Or just November in general. With yoga instructor (and boyfriend) Jaxton, elementary teacher Caden, and professional actress Alicia, Logan is out to save her career and tell a culturally conscious story about what it means to be Native American … even though all of the performers are white. Punctuated by offensive (and completely real) Thanksgiving songs from educators’ social media, Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play is a hilarious satiric jab at political correctness, social wokeness, and cultural assumptions.

Ticket – $28 (includes fees)

The Outsider by Paul Slade Smith

Ned Newley doesn’t even want to be governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.

Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill

Mar 1, 2024 - Mar 10, 2024
Ticket – $30 (includes fees)

Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill by Lanie Robertson

Based on the legendary Billie Holiday, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill is a play with music that will make you feel like you’re front and center witnessing the jazz legend herself perform and share anecdotes about her life. The play takes place in March of 1959 at a run-down bar in South Philadelphia, Emerson’s Bar and Grill, where Holiday performs her well-known jazz songs and charms the audience with her natural joy for music and life. Though the narrative is historical fiction, Holiday shares real stories about her life about everything from love affairs to substance abuse and segregation. The performance is one of her last before her death in July of 1959. Holiday is accompanied by Jimmy Powers on the piano, a good friend and love of hers, who calms her and helps her as she becomes increasingly intoxicated throughout the night. Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill will both warm and break your heart and leave you humming Billie Holiday’s classic tunes for the rest of the week.

The 39 Steps

Apr 5, 2024 - Apr 14, 2024
Ticket – $28 (includes fees)

The 39 Steps Adapted by Patrick Barlow

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy. The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies? A cast of four actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium.

You're A Good Man Charlie Brown

May 24, 2024 - Jun 2, 2024
Ticket – Adult $30, Children 12 and under $22 (includes fees)

You're A Good Man Charlie Brown Book, Music, & Lyrics by Clark Gesner

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.
