Things My Mother Taught Me

Directed by Priscilla Gonzalez

Things My Mother Taught Me Cast

Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together.
They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway
across the country, to start a new life together in Chicago. Their
moving day doesn't go exactly as planned though and things
become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show
up to help! Can a two bedroom apartment contain all of the love,
laughs, worry, and wisdom that's about to happen? This brand
new comedy from the author of Nana's Naughty Knickers takes a
generational look at relationships and how sometimes parents are
passing their best lessons on to their children without even
meaning to. Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh
out loud and fall in love all over again.

Love From A Stranger
By Agatha Cristie
September 15-October 1, 2017
Directed by Bob May

Love From A Stranger Cast

Cecily Harrington's fiance is traveling in the Sudan, when she
wins a big prize in a sweepstake and decides to postpone the
wedding to spend a portion of the money on a European trip.
During her travels, she meets Bruce Lovell, who sweeps the
romance-craving Cecily off her feet, marries her, and takes her to
his out-of-the-way cottage in the country. However, Lovell is not
the charming gentleman he appears to be. Instead, he is a
homicidal maniac of the most eerie, repulsive type, and is
resolved to murder his new wife, just as he has murdered several
other women before her. When a series of circumstances leads
Cecily to realize the ghastly fact, she finds herself caught like a
rat in a trap, unsure of how she will escape.

On Golden Pond
By Ernest Thompson
November 3-19, 2017
Directed by Roxie Lee

On Golden Pond Cast

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are
returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth
year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart
palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued,
observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and
the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that
have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together.
They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her
dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son
behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the
"grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman
revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him,
he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—
and slang—in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does
their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the
play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the
incidence of a mild heart attack.

Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a

Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof's
universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class,
nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of

her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a

You Can’t Take It With You
By Moss Hart & George Kaufman
May 4-20, 2018
Directed by John Francis

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we
realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In
contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The
plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in
love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the
Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by
the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that
marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores,
however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her
point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are
right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the
end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the
Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an
ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention
has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members
of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor
of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid
and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax
collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.
