MAIN STAGE SHOW

Everyone DO NOT miss this show! I think it’s the best I’ve seen at this theater. Perfection in the casting and the set is phenomenal, we drove from Houston and it was worth every mile.

Crimes of the Heart

A Comedy/Drama by Beth Henley
Playing September 22 – October 9, 2022
Directed by Jimmy Phillips

The three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their grandfather who is living out his final hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest, is unmarried at 30 and facing diminishing prospects; Meg, the middle sister, outgrew small-town Hazelhurst and has returned after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is currently out on bail after having recently shot her husband. Their troubles are hilarious (and many!) and are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of prison. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, this is a warm-hearted, zany play that teems with humanity and humor.

Sponsored by Steve and Teresa James

Coney Island Christmas

A Comedy by Donald Marguiles based on the story “The Loudest Voice” by Grace Paley
Playing December 1 – December 18, 2022
Directed by Kate Revnell-Smith

Weaving together nostalgia, music, and merriment, this is a holiday show for people of all ages and faiths. An older Shirley Abramowitz tells her great-granddaughter the story of when she was cast in the role of Jesus in her school’s Christmas pageant.  As a young Jewish girl, her immigrant parents are horrified and will not allow her to participate. This is a charming story of what it means to be an American during the holidays.

The Mousetrap

A Mystery Thriller by Agatha Christie
Playing February 9 – February 26, 2023
Directed by Patrick Pearson

After hearing a woman has been murdered, the guests and staff at Monkswell Manor find themselves stranded during a snowstorm. As it becomes clear that the killer is among them, the seven strangers grow increasingly suspicious of one another. A police detective, arriving on skis, interrogates the suspects: the newlyweds running the house; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major; a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. When a second murder takes place, tensions and fears escalate culminating in a surprise finish. The Mousetrap had its world premiere on October 6, 1952, and continues to be the world’s longest-running play.
