OVER THE TAVERN

By Tom Dudzick

Directed by Alex Martinez

July 15 - 26, 2020

 

In that most idealized period of 20th Century America, the Eisenhower years of the 1950s, the Pazinki family has a lot going on in their cramped Buffalo apartment. The youngest of the bunch, 12-year-old Rudy, is a smart, wise-cracking kid who’s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. When Rudy goes up against the ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and announces that instead of being confirmed he’d rather shop around for a more “fun” religion, all hell breaks loose. A warm and hilarious look at family, growing up and God.

 

“…funny, delightful, and timeless!”

“…suggests that an inquiring mind and a sense of humor can liberate all.”

“It’s a wonderful tribute to all the baby boomers and how we dealt with a changing world.”

A SHOT IN THE DARK

By Marcel Achard, adapted by Harry Kurnitz

Directed by Pam Harbaugh

September 30 – October 11, 2020

 

A good hearted parlor maid is hauled before the magistrate on a charge of murder, having been found unconscious, nude, and clutching a gun, with her lover dead beside her. What is most shocking to the magistrate is the complete frankness with which she describes her life as a parlor maid and her affairs with both the dead chauffeur and her aristocratic employer. She is so ingenious that the magistrate, at the risk of his juridical neck, decides that she could not have committed the murder. The magistrate finds the right culprit and the open hearted little parlor maid offers herself to him as a present.

 

"A bubbling, saucy comedy... 

“A light, tasty soufflé." 

“Naughtiness has rarely been so nice!”
 

SISTER ACT

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Glenn Slater, Book by Cheri & Bill Steinkellner 
Additional Book Material by Douglas Carter Beane, Based on the Touchstone Pictures Motion Picture “Sister Act”
Written by Joseph Howard
Directed by Beth McKenzie-Shestak
November 4-22, 2020

 

“Sister Act” is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

 

“Big, glitzy numbers are the toast of Broadway musicals.”

“One of the season’s happiest surprises!”

“Full-throttle disco numbers that build up to an ecstatic finale.”
 

ALMOST, MAINE

By John Cariani

Directed by Tevin Brown

January 6 – 17, 2021

 

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the norther lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

 

“Almost, Maine is a series of 9 vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism.”

“…witty, romantic, and unsentimental.”

“A mega hit that packs wit, earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you.”
 

CALENDAR GIRLS

By Tim Firth
Directed by Art Pingree
February 3 – February 14, 2021

 

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of the new-found fame.

 

“Smash-hit show…hilarious yet touching…”

“Induces a few tears along with the joy and laughter.”

“Full of heart and bare-faced cheek!”

Death of a Salesman

April 3-5, 2020
Directed by Art Pingree

Sponsored by Inside Track Almanac Magazine

Willy Loman’s career is over. During a pivotal 24 hours, he reflects on his life as a father, husband and traveling salesman. Truth and lies intermingle as Willy tries to reconcile the optimism of his youth with his unfulfilled dreams. As the full force of reality crashes down on him, he places his last hope of success in his two sons. Miller’s classic challenges us to reconsider what it means to succeed and the cost of chasing the American Dream.
