Accomplice
10/13/2017 to 10/29/2017

Accomplice By Rupert Holmes, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Accomplice is the winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award (the “Oscar” of crime and suspense) and written by Tony® award winner Rupert Holmes. The story begins in Dartmoor, England at the stylish weekend retreat of the affluent Derek and Janet Taylor, and both adultery and murder are in the air. But we will soon learn that all is never as it seems in this electrifying game of trickery and misdirection. Who is the hunter and who the hunted…and precisely who is the title character of Accomplice? "Part murder mystery, part sex farce and completely entertaining...Suspenseful, charming and funny." - USA Today. October 13-29 Performances run for 3 weekends: Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Adults: $18 (reserved) or $20 (at door) Military/Seniors: $17 (reserved) or $19 (at door) Students: $10 (reserved) or $12 (at door)

The Kitchen Witches By Caroline Smith Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!

The Charitable Sisterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church
02/09/2018 to 02/25/2018

The Charitable Sisterhood of the Second Trinity Victory Church By Bo Wilson Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Inc. The roads are flooded, the bridges are washed out, and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood from fulfilling their sworn mission. Bea Littleton is the pastor's wife; Lorraine Jensen is the tireless mother of nine; Tina Yates is the transplanted Yankee; and Janet Murchison is the newest arrival. When these ladies meet to organize a relief effort for homeless Guatemalans, they are greeted with a small mountain of community donations—but one woman's junk is another woman's treasure. Feb 9-25, 2018 Performances run for 3 weekends: Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Adults: $18 (reserved) or $20 (at door) Military/Seniors: $17 (reserved) or $19 (at door) Students: $10 (reserved) or $12 (at door)
