Lest We Regret 11 x 17 poster - at 250 dpi copy LEST WE REGRET
November 10-15, 2015

The compelling story of an aged Veteran trying to live with the horrors of war and a family military tradition that glorifies it. A daughter who doesn’t fit in and aches to win over her father’s love. A family tragedy that forces them to confront their pain and look at what has brought them to where they are.

November 26-28, 2015

Life before washing machines and phones. Before television and internet. In a lot of ways, life was much simpler. Although, the time spent with Millie Johnson will leave you wondering if simpler is the best term to use. Millie spins tales of laughter that come from using ringer washers and milking cows by hand; when working hard had a whole different meaning and homemade bread was served at every meal.

Robin Hood 11 x 17 Poster copyThe Trials of Robin Hood

December 3-20, 2015

Sponsored by:


Bringing together conflicting legends and ballads about the famous outlaw folk hero in a hysterical, sprawling, action-packed comedy that everyone will enjoy. Told from the perspectives of Robin himself, Maid Marian, and The Sheriff of Nottingham, this hilarious tale combines three different stories into one — and with three different endings, leaves it up to the audience to decide which one is true! Great entertainment for the whole family during the Christmas season.

May 12-22, 2016

A comedy about a few days in the life of a successful and self-obsessed matinee idol. He deals with a series of very funny events as he works to overcome his impending midlife crisis.  The play was written by Noel Coward for himself and was described as a series of semi-autobiographical pyrotechnics!  Most recently revived on Broadway in 2010 to rave reviews with London’s own Victor Garbor.

By Noel Coward

Directed by Rob Coles
