REX'S EXES, TABLE SETTINGS, ALADDIN, JR. and More Set for Sam Bass Theatre's 2014-15 Season
Sam Bass Theatre is pleased to announce its 2014-2015 season full of laughter, drama and song!
REX'S EXES by James, Hope & Wooten
September 26 - October 18
Directed by LYNN BEAVER
This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas - Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette - teetering on the brink of disaster again. The sequel to last season's hit "The Red Velvet Cake War", the outrageous complications of this ferociously funny comedy explode into chaos, you'll find yourself hoping your next family celebration-be it birthday, wedding or funeral-is even half this much fun!
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER by Barbara Robinson
December 5 - 28
Directed by VERONICA PRIOR
In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on! "An American classic." - McCall's Magazine
TABLE SETTINGS by James Lapine
February 13 - March 7
Directed by FRANK BENGE
Table Settings, a highly acclaimed and long running Off Broadway success is an hysterical look at an American family. Neuroses are usually a family affair, and if you have ever brought up a family ... or even if you have ever tried to bring up a family ... this comedy from the man who wrote the librettos for INTO THE WOODS and PASSION is an affectionate love letter to classic American suburban dis-function.
GOD'S FAVORITE by Neil Simon
April 10 - May 2
Directed by ERIC NELSON
Successful Long Island businessman Joe Benjamin is a modern-day 'Job' with a demanding wife, ungrateful children and wise-cracking household employees. Just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, he is visited by Sidney Lipton, a.k.a. A Messenger from God (and compulsive film buff) with a mission: test Joe's faith and report back to "the Boss". The jokes and Tests of Faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious comedy.
NEVER THE SINNER by John Logan
May 15 - 30
Directed by ASHLEY ZEH
Never the Sinner is about two boys who commit a murder - not for gain, or out of passion - just to do it, just to experience the thrill. Based on the infamous 1924 trial of Leopold and Loeb, this is their story, and the story of one of the most famous American lawyers and civil libertarians, Clarence Darrow. In the case of a lifetime, Darrow is called in to defend the monstrous and try to win freedom for the depraved. MATURE THEMES.
