THE CURIOUS SAVAGE by John Patrick

THE CURIOUS SAVAGE, written by John Patrick, is characterized as high comedy.
Synopsis: Ethel P. Savage, an elderly woman whose husband recently died and left her ten million dollars, wants to make the best use of this inheritance, despite her grown-up stepchildren’s effort to get their hands on the money. Knowing the widow’s wealth is untouchable, the stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium. Contrasting the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the avarice and vanity of “respectable” public figures, it calls into question conventional definitions of sanity while lampooning celebrity culture.

THE LAST HOOTENANNY

In early 2015, David Durham approached the SCG Music Club Board of Directors and proposed doing a “Hootenanny.” The vision was to have members of the Acoustic Instrument Group lead the audience in a gigantic sing-along. The Board gave its approval, and the first Hootenanny took place in April of 2015. It was so successful that the Music Club decided to sponsor a Holiday version that December. Except for three events that were cancelled due to COVID, the group has done two Hoot’s every year since, and all have sold out quickly.

This will be the thirteenth and final Hootenanny. David has decided to hand over the reins to two younger MC members, Mike Kuykendall and Dave Williams, in the hope that they will continue with the sing-along idea in a re-branded format. They are not sure what the new name will be, but pretty sure it will not be called a “Hootenanny.”

This Holiday Hootenanny will feature your favorites from the 50’s and 60’s - folk, western, and rock & roll, together with traditional holiday songs. As usual, it will be a spirited event with song lyrics shown on the overhead screens. Accompaniment will be provided by guitars, banjo, bass, fiddle, harmonica and congas. This “Last Hootenanny” will sell out quickly, so get your tickets soon and get ready to sing!

TWO WEEKENDS – DRAMA & COMEDY CLUB
I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE – Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro, Music by Jimmy Roberts
I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE. A musical romantic comedy that ran off-Broadway for over 5,000 performances making it the second longest-running show in off-Broadway history.

SYNOPSIS: This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship.” Through sketches and songs, Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws, trips in the family car, and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”

2023 GRAND SERIES: THE PAPAS AND MAMAS


The Mamas and the Papas become a pivotal part of American culture in the 1960’s. The very roots of the hippie movement can be directly traced to their artistic influence. Prior to the Mamas and the Papas, most vocal groups were unisex and all dressed very conservatively. When Cass, John, Denny & Michelle hit the scene those stereotypes flew out the window. Their unique style and light pop arrangements helped put California on the musical map and the laid-back 60’s West Coast lifestyle was born. Billed as a loving tribute to the original 1960’s rock band, The Papas & Mamas recreate the musical chemistry of one of the few North American groups to maintain widespread success during the British Invasion.

ETERNITY by Michael Cochran

ETERNITY is a comedic play written by author Michael Cochran.
Synopsis: Abe, sick of sticking to a sensible diet, decides to move a client appointment to later in the day in favor of getting an ice cream sandwich. The only problem is that Abe is an angel of death, and his “appointments” are to greet the newly deceased and take them to the next stop. Things quickly spiral out of control when Abe’s repeated attempts to “bump off” his delayed appointment fails, and the real threat of a new “unauthorized life” will occur unless Abe gets everything back on track. Meanwhile, he eventually rediscovers what the real meaning of life and death is all about.
