Harvey
All ages

By: Mary Chase


   

October 22 - November 14, 2010: Elwood P. Dowd has always been unconventional. His sunny disposition and wealthy background have made the community regarding him as a harmless eccentric.

Play On! (Comedy) All ages

By: Rick Abbot

   
June 3 - 26, 2011: A hapless theater company tries desperately to put on a play, amid all kinds of maddening interference from the playwright who is on-site and keeps revising the script daily.

Don't miss this thoroughly enjoyable romp. A behind-the-scenes comedy in the tradition of Noises Off. Director - Kathryn Beall
