On Golden Pond
by Ernest Thompson: September 21 - October 21, 2012
Directed by Krista Schwarting
produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

An award winning play that is as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1979. A retired couple, Ethel and Norman Thayer, spend every summer at their home on Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter visits, bringing along her 13-year-old son. The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties facing a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine to give this play a wonderful perspective on family and on life.

My Three Angels
by Samuel and Bella Spewack: November 23 - December 23, 2012
Directed by Don Gomes
produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

A Christmas comedy set in French Guiana, a region where on Christmas Eve the temperature has graciously dropped to 104 degrees. A family faces a dire situation, but their plight is heard by three angels up above -- actually three warm-hearted convicts on work release working on the family's roof. The convicts are passionate believers in true justice, and do their best to set matters right. A captivating and comedic holiday treasure also known as "We're No Angels."

A Shayna Maedel
By Barbara Lebow January 25 - February 17, 2013
Directed by Erin Mitchell
produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

A powerful, moving and deeply affecting portrait of a family, which conveys the aftermath of the Holocaust through a poignant, imaginatively conceived examination of one divided family's experience. Set in New York City after World War II, the play has been widely produced by America's leading regional theatres, and went on to become a long-run Off-Broadway success.

At Home With The Clarks
by Rand Higbee March 8 - 31, 2013
Directed by Nate Benson
produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

The world premier of a new play by Rand Higbee, author of the hilarious The Head That Wouldn't Die. A traditional 1960s American family faces seemingly insurmountable difficulties involving teenagers growing up, time travel, nuclear war and a world overrun by zombies! There will be tears, but only from uncontrollable laughter.

by Dan Goggin April 26 - May 19, 2013
Directed by
produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc..

A zany musical which was awarded Best Off Broadway Musical in its original New York production. The show is a fund raiser put on by Catholic nuns, the Little Sisters of Hoboken, to raise money to bury sisters accidentally poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia.
