Sidney Bruhl: Gregg Edelman
Myra Bruhl: Alison Fraser
Clifford Anderson: Tom Pecinka
Helga Ten Dorp: Debra Jo Rupp
Porter Milgrim: Eric Hill
Recognized as the longest-running comedic thriller on Broadway, Deathtrap is a sidesplitting romp of a play within a play. Aaron Mark, who brilliantly directed The Mystery of Irma Vep last year, directs Ira Levin's treasured Tony Award-nominated play. This witty thriller tells the tale of defeated playwright, Sidney Bruhl, played by Gregg Edelman (A Little Night Music), who would do almost anything to write a hit Broadway play. Former student, Clifford Anderson, played by Tom Pecinka (Design For a Living, The Cat and the Canary), tells Sidney that he's written a suspense play with a seamless plot that's sure to be Broadway-bound. When Sidney lures Clifford into his colonial style home, adorned with eclectic antique weaponry, both men's motives become unclear as unforeseen happenings unfold. Jaw-dropping hilarity ensues as the zany characters weave a web of mystery in two acts.

Telephone service operator, Ella Peterson, played by Tony Award-nominated Kate Baldwin (A Little Night Music, Finian's Rainbow) is not your typical phone operator. Using a variety of comical personas, Ella meddles with her clients' lives as she takes and delivers their phone messages. Ella's busybody ways trigger trouble when she falls for one of her customers, Jeff Moss, played by Kate Baldwin's real life husband, Broadway and television actor, Graham Rowat (A Little Night Music). A hilarious mesh of mistaken identity and mishap follow in this delightful musical directed by BTG Alum, Ethan Heard (A Little Night Music, Cat and The Canary). Bells Are Ringing is an irresistibly charming musical, bursting with breathtaking dance numbers.

This is Rebecca's life: she wakes up, eats a sensible breakfast, wraps herself in three layers, drives to the train station, commutes to her bookkeeping job in the city, watches the clock, goes home, cooks dinner for her domineering mother, watches TV, and falls asleep grieving for her dead dog. Every day is the same as the next until Rebecca's underachieving brother begs her to take care of her troubled niece-and she does what she always does-she lets it happen. In an unforgivingly bitter month, three generations of women with nothing in common, except a deeply buried ache, try to keep the cold away. Suzanne Heathcote's I Saw My Neighbor On the Train and Didn't Even Smile is a funny, poignant drama.
