Comedy of Tenors

By Ken Ludwig

October 4 to October 19

 Matinees Oct 6 & 13

It’s 1937 in a Paris hotel suite; four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with exuberant fans. What could possibly go wrong? Producer Harry Saunders has to try and keep his star tenor, Tito Morelli and his hot-headed wife, Maria from causing chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride full of mistaken identities and hijinks of operatic proportions!

Always a Bridesmaid

by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten

January 17 to February 1

Matinees Jan 19 & 26

For more than thirty years four Southern belles have been making “the long walk” to support each other’s various marriages. This includes wearing some of the funniest bridesmaids dresses ever designed. They test the patience of the determined and experienced wedding planner to the max, particularly when one songstress threatens to shatter the good crystal. Her voice has been described as “like a herd of cats fighting over a bagpipe “. This is down-home Southern charm at its funniest.

Charley’s Aunt

Matinees Apr 5 & 12 

The time – 1882; Two Oxford University students, Jack and Charley, want to have their girlfriends to lunch. Charley’s Aunt is to chaperone, but has to ‘beg off’ at the last minute. Someone must impersonate her. Who better than their friend Lord Fancourt Babberly? ” Babbs” is usually “up for anything “. But this will test even his limits. He is to dress up as Charley’s Aunt from Brazil “where the nuts come from “. One of the most iconic lines in English-speaking theatre from a wonderful classic farce loved the world over for its zaniness.
