A nice single Italian-American guy travels from New York City to Hoboken every Sunday to see both sets of grandparents for dinner. This routine has gone on for twenty nine years. But one Sunday he has to tell them that he’s been offered a great new executive job in Seattle, Washington and will be leaving NYC. This good news does not sit so well with the grandparents. Their children have retired to Florida. His sister has moved to San Diego and so they have not seen their only great grandchild. They feel their family has abandoned them. So they scheme to keep him close by inviting a lovely single girl to dinner one Sunday. Come see if the grandparent’s plan works out in this very funny and touching comedy!

PLAZA SUITE one of Neil Simon’s best comedies

Directed by Joe Stallone

Production dates OCTOBER 26, 27 NOVEMBER 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 2012

Featuring: Barbara Douglass, Shawn Maguire, Kerry Anne Kilkelly, Karl Schmith and Steven Atwater

There’s a lot going on in Suite 719 at New York City’s swank Plaza Hotel in this classic Neil Simon comedy. We are treated to three comedies played out in the same suite by three couples in very different situations, each taking a look, and a poke at marriage, morals, and middle-age. It is a hilarious and shrewd situation comedy with witty, sassy and acerbic exchanges and snappy one-liners. In his inimitable way, Simon intertwines the comedy with the pathos and distress that is true to life. Audiences are enjoying the revival on Broadway today as much as they did when it originally opened on Broadway in 1968, winning the Tony for Best Play. Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite remains in the hearts of all theatre goers. Make your reservations soon to join in the fun!

A beautiful young woman in early twentieth-century clothing is found floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic. She says only one word: Titanic. There is a mysterious young man whose goal is to prove she is a fake and reveal her true identity. His one clue is her references to an unknown place called Scotland Road. In a stark white room, assisted by a skeptical doctor, he plays a cat-and-mouse game with her. As time runs out, he brings in the last living survivor of the disaster, an elder woman who has lived in seclusion for 75 years. By the play’s end, one of the characters is dead and the relationship between the woman and mysterious man is revealed.

DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL a comedy by Mitch Albom

Directed by Kristen Hughes

AUDITIONS March 3RD AND 4TH 2012

Production dates APRIL 26, 27 AND MAY 3, 4, 5, 10, 11 2013

An uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but they think they shot an angel! As they lament their fate in the local swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer who don’t believe any of it—until they discover feathers, wings and a tiara. It is a story with a half-man/half-alligator, sibling rivalry, a tawdry media boss, a Gasmart cashier and a ghost. As the chase to find the angel builds so does the hilarity! This eventually heartwarming play interweaves love, loss, riffs on cultural stereotypes and race relations and builds to a surprising ending that few playgoers see coming! The play premiered 2004 at the Purple Rose Theater in Chelsea, Michigan, a theater started by actor Jeff Daniels.
