The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

Opened September 15th

Written by John Bishop

 

Some 1940s show-biz types assemble for a backer's audition of their new show in the middle of a blizzard in New York. Moving bookshelves, secret passageways and people who are not who they appear to be all figure diabolically in the comic mayhem that occurs when the infamous "Stage Door Slasher" strikes again. Directed by Charlotte Rose.

 

Song of Survival

Opened November 10th

By Eleanor Harder and Ray Harder

Book by Helen Colijn

 

Women in World War II Japanese prisoner of war camp create beautiful music to sustain themselves against the horrors of camp life. Present-day Helen, a P.O.W. survivor and the story’s narrator, speaks to her younger self urging forgiveness, while young Helen insists that the daily horrors be remembered. There are acts of selfishness among the prisoners, but also humor, courage and compassion. Above all, glorious music unites them in hope. Directed by Debbie Sutton.

 

Steel Magnolias

Feb. 9th, 2017 - Feb. 19th, 2017

 

Welcome to Truvy's beauty shop were the motto is, "There's no such thing as natural beauty!'" Steel Magnolias, the Broadway hit that became a community theatre favorite, is returning to the Town and Gown stage for the first time since 2001. Filled with hilarious repartee, Steel Magnolias, written by Robert Harling, is a fun yet poignant look at enduring friendships in the small-town south. See it again for the first time.

To Kill a Mockingbird

April 13th, 2017 - April 23rd, 2017

 

Set in the deep south during the great depression of the 1930s, this play, adapted by Christopher Sergel from the book by Harper Lee, follows the lives of a brother and sister and their widowed father, Aticus Finch. The small family is thrown into chaos when Aticus, a lawyer, chooses to defend a black man accused of rape. The play's brilliantly crafted dialogue offers charm and humor despite the serious nature of the work.

Annie Get Your Gun - June 14th, 2017 - June 25th, 2017

 

Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and when she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades the sharpshooter to join his wild west show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace, Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, original book by Herbert & Dorothy Fields and revised by Peter Stone.
