Filled with the wit and charm of Noël Coward, Blithe Spirit is a comedy gem! As inspiration for his new novel, fussy and cantankerous Charles Condomine invites the wonderfully eccentric medium, Madame Arcati to perform a seance in his house. When things go terribly awry, Charles suddenly finds himself caught in an improbable love triangle between his naive living wife, Ruth, and his decidedly "spirited" former wife, Elvira.

Pygmalion
George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Sherrionne Brown
02/08/19 - 03/01/19
Fri & Sat at 8pm; Sun at 2pm


Eliza Doolittle, an intelligent, but poor woman who sells flowers . . . crosses paths with Henry Higgins, a boorish, insensitive, but brilliant linguist who studies phonetics. He realizes we are all equal under the skin and that social class is a matter of skilled behavior. What starts as a phonetic experiment becomes a social experiment. As these two headstrong people spar, we follow Eliza through to her emotional and financial independence, as Eliza herself realizes she was already a lady. The sparkling wit and biting humor of Shaw's script has made Pygmalion into a classic which has endured for over a century, still speaking to us about the false constructs of social class and wowing us with a portrayal of a strong woman who overcomes the conventions of her time.

Directed & Choreographed by Quae Simpson
Musical Direction by LeVar Betts
03/22/19 - 04/21/19

Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock 'n' roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized '50's setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set‑pieces and slice‑of‑life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, Smokey Joe's Café isn't just great pop music ‑ it's compelling musical theatre. Featuring songs, such as: Stand By Me, Fools Fall in Love, I’m A Woman, Poison Ivy and more!

Vinegar Tom
Carol Churchill
Directed by Erin Riley
05/10/19 - 06/02/19
Fri & Sat at 8pm; Sun at 2pm


Witch Hunt: a community targets its weakest members as “other”, then uses law and religion to persecute and destroy them. It’s no coincidence the victims are female identified. What was true in 1670 is eerily true in 2018. A play about power, sex and witches by acclaimed British playwright Caryl Churchill. An intense journey back and forth through time, propelling us from the 17th to the 21st century to see just how much things have changed even as they remain the same

Steel Magnolias
Robert Harling
Directed by Fuzz Roark
06/21/19 - 07/14/19
Fri & Sat at 8pm; Sun at 2pm


In Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done . . . and get the latest news and gossip! The outspoken, wise‑cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to all who will listen. Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves through life and tragedy, with a sense of humor, and Southern Charm. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the everyone, but also draws on the underlying strength - and love - which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. These characters appear delicate as magnolia blooms, but are tough as steel.
