September 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, & 20, 2015“ – The Full Monty” (musical)
A group of out-of-work factory workers discovers that while everyone else’s financial security is going down the drain, a local bar in town that features male strippers is going great guns. The women (who are now the main breadwinners because their husbands are out of work), need some place to let off a little steam and this strip joint seems to be it!! Jerry comes up with the idea that he and his buddies can do what the dancers are doing and they should be able to make some big bucks doing it!! And that’s when the fun begins . . .
December 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, & 20, 2015 – “Fruitcakes”
Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, three dozen Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor Christmas lights, a chicken pox epidemic, two southern spinsters, an estranged old man, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you’ve got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer. Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his money will take him. At first he thinks this town’s inhabitants are “nuttier than fruitcakes,” but soon he comes to admire, appreciate and adore this nutty little town. A moving story of alienation, understanding and reconciliation, FrUiTCaKeS provides audiences with a heaping helping of holiday warmth and Christmas cheer.
February 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, & 28, 2016 – “Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”
In a small town dime store in West Texas, the “Disciples of James Dean” gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies’ congenial reminiscences mingle with flash backs to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning but familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments. A work of amazing dramatic power… ingenious, shocking… funny, brimming with pathos, wise and full of wonder at the sometimes sinister tricks of life.
April 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, & 24, 2016 – “Where the Lilies Bloom”
Young Mary Call Luther has spunk, guts, spirit – call it what you will – and she needs them if she’s to keep her family together after the death of her father. To do this, she has to hide her father’s death from the county welfare, from Kiser Pease, their landlord, and from the townspeople. Kiser wants to marry Devola, Mary Call’s older sister, a dreamy, quiet, deceptively retiring girl. Keeping Kiser Pease and the townsfolk at bay lets everyone in for some hilarious tricks and ruses that keep the play moving with action and suspense.
June 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, & 12, 2016 – “Sordid Lives”
A black comedy about white trash! The author of Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got the Will?) brings you a comedy that was nominated for over thirty awards during its long run in Los Angeles. When Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover’s wooden legs in a motel room, chaos erupts in Winters, Texas. “This play is maybe funnier than Daddy’s Dyin’. Del Shores’ colorful eccentrics are dead on, teetering on a Bowie knife’s edge between the hilarious improbable and the achingly real.”
