Director: Samantha Goldstein
Producer: Joel Colbourn & Lynn Wolsey

It’s four days before Christmas in Tinsel, Texas, and a parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn to deck the halls with holiday hilarity. Trina, the innkeeper, has more than she can handle! It’s clear it will take more than a kiss under the mistletoe to keep her spirits merry and bright. But a Christmas Eve wedding that unites the Futrelle sisters and their best friend, Raynerd, takes a delightful turn that leads to a laugh-’til-your-sides-ache climax! This family-friendly Christmas comedy is more fun than a joyride in a one-horse open sleigh!

Murder at the Howard Johnson’s
by Sam Bobrick & Ron Clark

(A farcical comedy)

Director: Steve Murdock
Producers: Jennifer McKenna & Merrill Gill

Is all fair in love? Even murder? That is the question posed by this light and funny suspense comedy about a “murder” in a Howard Johnson’s Motor Inn. The play presents a love triangle involving a woman, her lover, and her husband in three scenes – the wife and her lover plot to murder the husband, the wife and her husband plot to murder the lover, and the husband and the lover plot to murder the wife!

“Enough laugh lines, mirth provoking situations and extravagant sight gags to outfit two rapid fire farces of the absurd.” — Variety

The Dining Room
By A. R. Gurney

Directed by Brent A. Stringfield
Produced by Merrill Gill and Ruth Woodbeck

The play is a comedy of manners, set in a single dining room, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions, where eighteen (18) scenes from different households overlap and intertwine creating a mosaic of interrelated scenes - some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class America. Presumably, each story is focused around a different family during different time periods who has in their possession the same dining room furniture set, manufactured in 1898. The stories are about families; some scenes are about the furniture itself and the emotional attachment to it, while other scenes simply flesh out the culture of the family. Overall, it tells the story of the dying and relatively short-lived culture of upper-middle class Americans, and the transition into a much more efficient society with less emphasis on tradition and more emphasis on progress. Some characters are made fun of, as is the culture itself, but there is also a genuine longing for the sense of stability, comfort, and togetherness that the culture provides.
The performers change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Thanksgiving dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor, and abundant humanity.
