A Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy members of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair

Written by Neil Simon, Directed by Elaine DiFalco Daugherty

A four-part comedy confection by the great comic playwright, Neil Simon.  Four couples arrive, and separately inhabit a Beverly Hills hotel suite, hilariously bringing along their problems, anxieties, and comical marital dilemmas.  This is Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.  (Includes mature content)

Written by August Strindberg, Adapted by Howard Brenton, Directed by Steve Berglund

Book by Terrence McNally, Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Directed and Choreographed by Annette Thornton

A sweeping musical portrait of early-twentieth-century America that tells the story of four families in the pursuit of the American Dream. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America. (*Includes mature language, content and/or violence)

Written by Simon Stephens, Directed by Keeley Stanley-Bohn

In an English private school, a group of highly-articulate eighteen-year-olds flirt and posture their way through the day. With hormones raging and minimal adult supervision, the students must prepare for their future—and survive the savagery of high school. Punk Rock is an honest and unnerving chronicle of contemporary adolescence. (*Includes mature language, content and/or violence)

Written by Thornton Wilder, Directed by Nancy Eddy

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play, described by Edward Albee as “... a masterpiece... one of the toughest and saddest plays ever written,” captures the daily life of a small New Hampshire town, Grover’s Corners, from 1901-1913, exploring the meaning of life and what it means to be human. Our Town is an impassioned call to take notice of the beauty in small and everyday things.

Artistic Direction by Heather Trommer-Beardslee
