MEET THE CAST

We have a great cast lined up for our next production: The Fantasticks.

THE FANTASTICKS is the world’s longest-running production of any kind, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. It is a moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love. Punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs such as “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” audiences will find themselves humming along whether they are revisiting the show or discovering it for the first time.

ANNOUNCING OUR 2015 SEASON

The players have selected our 2015 Season, and we're very excited about it. With a little bit of comedy, a bit of music, and a murder tossed in for good measure, we're sure to keep the hits coming.

In March, we will open with Getting Sara Married. You are cordially invited to the wedding of Sara Goldstein. There's just one problem—she's a successful Manhattan workaholic with no time or desire for romance, but her dear Aunt Martha, has decided it's time to Sara to find a husband. Sit back and enjoy the hilarious events that unfold in this irreverent look at matchmaking.

In June, we present a classic: The Fantasticks, the longest continually running musical on Broadway. This beautiful, whimsical musical features breathtaking poetry. It is the story of two young lovers and their warring fathers. As the course of true love never did run smooth, they hit some bumps along the way, only to discover a deeper love at the end. Featuring the much beloved "Try to Remember," The Fantasticks is an intimate show that will delight theatergoers of any age.

We close out the season in November with Ken Ludwig's (author of Lend Me a Tenor): The Game's Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays. It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The mix of suspense, mystery, and farce will leave you guessing and laughing all at the same time.
