Earnest Poster Small Web view

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

A Comedy by Oscar Wilde

January 10 - February 8
Sunday Matinees January 19 & February 2

Country gentleman Jack Worthing invents a younger brother, Ernest, whom he pretends to be when he visits the city. This gives him free reign to pursue the beautiful Gwendolen. Meanwhile his city-based friend, Algernon Moncrieff, invents a poorly relative, Bunbury, whom he pretends to visit in the country in order that he can leave his dull city existence behind for a bit of fun and frivolity. One day Algernon pretends to be Ernest and visits Jack's pretty charge, Cecily, in the country, which leads to all kinds of confusion about identity. Obviously, Jack is not happy, but when his own deceptive behaviour is called into question, the scene is ripe for much farce and hilarity. Oscar Wilde’s biting wit and masterful satire make The Importance of Being Earnest, a must see!

THE FARNDALE AVENUE HOUSING ESTATE TOWN’S WOMEN’S GUILD DRAMATIC SOCIETY MURDER MYSTERY

A Comedy by DAVID MCGILLIVRAY & WALTER ZERLIN JR.

February 28 - March 29
Sunday Matinees March 9 & 23

This hilarious farce follows the antics of the four redoubtable ladies of The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild as they attempt to present 'Murder at Checkmate Manor'.   This ambiguous and cunning Agatha Christie-style 1930's drawing room murder mystery requires them to play all 14 roles (aided by their stage manager, Gordon) with hysterical results.  Even though Gordon, their stage manager, nobly steps into the breach at the last minute, their production is blighted by a series of disasters. The curse of amateur theater strikes…. The scenery falls down, sound effects add a strange note, cues are missed and those quick changes are just too slow. Through this adversity the ladies soldier on, determined to provide a good evening out for their audience (which also includes a Film and Fashion Show and Murder Mystery Quiz - complete with prize), but reveal more about the relationships between themselves than the plot.

NUNSET BOULEVARD

Book, Music & Lyrics by DAN GOGGIN

April 25  - May 24
Sunday Matinees May 4 & 18

NUNSET BOULEVARD follows the latest exploits of The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama — a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge — and not the famed 'Bowl' they were imagining. Things do not go as planned, as The Sisters must contend with announcements from the bowling alley public address system as well as the activity on the lanes. However, The Sisters catch wind of the fact that there are auditions across the street for roles in his new movie musical about the life of Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who became a nun. The Sisters, thinking they are naturals for parts, race off to audition during their show's intermission. Will Hoboken lose The Sisters to the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown?" Great family fun, NUNSENSE always delivers!

Doll's House Poster Small

A DOLL’S HOUSE

A Drama by HENRIK IBSEN

June 20  - July 19
SUNDAY MATINEES JUNE 29 & JULY 13

The earliest of Ibsen's social-problem plays, A Doll's House catapulted him to international recognition. This epochal drama of marriage and the individual portrays a controlling husband Torvald Helmer and his wife Nora, a submissive young woman who, when their idealized home life collapses, comes to the realization that she must finally close the door on her husband, children, and life in "a doll's house" in order to find and live as her true self. Combining technique and content in the play's realism, he employed natural dialogue and situations; insisting on the logical necessity of the outcome in a time of women's growing discontent with the social reverberations of Nora's slamming the door as she leaves Torvald continues to the present day.  Gripping drama from a true master.

Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan                     Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

October 3 - November 1
SUNDAY MATINEES October 12 & 26

IT’S ALIVE! The hilarious musical comedy is a wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ film masterpiece. The story follows young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to bring a corpse to life, but not without scary and hilarious complications. Don’t miss the kooky cast of characters delivering all your favorite moments from the classic film - hunchback sidekick Igor (that’s Eye-gor),the curvaceous lab assistant Inga, the stern housekeeper Frau Blucher (NEIGH!), madcap fianceť Elizabeth and of course, the tap dancing monster. With eye-popping special effects on all new show-stopping numbers including, “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” you’ll have a monstrously good time!  *Show contains adult themes and language. Some material may be inappropriate for children 13 and under.

SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD

A Comedy Farce by KEN LUDWIG

November 21  - December 20
Sunday Matinees November 30 & December 14

It's 1934, and Shakespeare's most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have magically materialized on the Warner Bros. Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the two are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves. With a little help from a feisty flower, blonde bombshells, movie moguls, and arrogant "asses" are tossed into loopy love triangles, with raucous results. The mischievous magic of moviedom sparkles in this hilarious comic romp.  A hilarious farce from the author of “Lend Me A Tenor”.

Directed by JOHN WRIGHT
