Valentine Event: An Evening of Love & Classic Film

The calendar was kind to HART this year because it allowed us to schedule a special event the day before Valentine's.

We'll be showing a classic romantic movie from 1945 called "The Clock" with Judy Garland and Robert Walker, directed by Vincente Minnelli. (He and Judy were married three weeks after the film was  released!) A sweet, simple story evoking a bygone era, and a glimpse into life in the 1940's.

Gift basket auctions, raffles, door prizes, live piano music in the lobby, good food and lots of chocolate! Special pricing for couples at just $25, and $15 for individuals.

The house opens at 6:15 pm to begin the festivities.

We hope you'll join us for a memorable evening.

Women and Wallace

By Jonathan Marc Sherman
Directed by Eric Lonergan

Comprised of a series of brisk, kaleidoscopic scenes, the play begins as Wallace, now a handsome young man of eighteen, hurls a ripe tomato at a pretty young woman dressed all in white while declaiming 'I love you.' We then move back in time to when Wallace, six years of age, is sent off to school by his mother who then proceeds to slit her own throat. Wallace finds her body, a shock which continues to haunt his relationships with the other women who come into his life as he grows up, including his crusty, wise grandmother; the girl who swipes his peanut butter and banana sandwich at school and later browbeats him into his first kiss; the psychiatrist who tries to help him exorcise his troubling memories; and the knowing senior who provides his sexual initiation while he is a college freshman. All of the characters, in the end, contribute to the mosaic which captures with such eloquence and wit all the fears and joys and uncertainties which mark Wallace's progress towards manhood.

Becky's New Car

By Stephen Dietz
Directed by Dorinda Toner

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare. BECKY'S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

 Performing March 18 - April, 3, 2016

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Peter Stein

The play concerns the misadventures and musings of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters from William Shakespeare's Hamlet who are childhood friends of the prince, focusing on their actions with the events of Hamlet as background. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is structured as the inverse ofHamlet; the title characters are the leads, not supporting players, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. The duo appears on stage here when they are off-stage in Shakespeare's play, with the exception of a few short scenes in which the dramatic events of both plays coincide. In Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are used by the King in an attempt to discover Hamlet's motives and to plot against him. Hamlet, however, mocks them derisively and outwits them, so that they, rather than he, are executed in the end. Thus, from Rosencrantz's and Guildenstern's perspective, the action in Hamlet is largely nonsensical and comical.
