The Odd Couple: Oct. 4-7

Odd Couple

Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit. When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.

Criminals in Love: Nov. 15-18

A rambunctious, deft and hilarious work about destiny, love and the classes. Junior is a goofy post-adolescent in love with the smart Gail. Junior, however, has a father in prison who blackmails Junior into committing a crime. Soon Junior finds himself hooked up with an unlikely assortment of accomplices including his girlfriend, a drunk turned hero-of-the-hour, a mad, pseudo-revolutionary who kisses everyone (kiss of death? Judas kiss? lust?) and a young woman who has tried prostitution as a legitimate career choice. It can't possibly end well. Canada Theatre Encyclopedia

Vanya & Sonia & Misha & Spike: Feb. 14-17

VSMS Program


Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play Adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.

The Moral of the Story

Touring Area Schools Mar 28-Apr 18
Children’s Theatre Workshop presents a collection of fables from the Greek story teller, Aesop. Aesop was a keen observer of both animals and people. Most of the characters in his stories are animals, some of which take on human characteristic and are personified in ways of speech and emotions. However, the majority of his character retain their animalistic qualities; tortoise are slow, hares are quick, tigers eat bird, etc. Aesop uses these qualities and natural tendencies of animals to focus on human traits and wisdom. Each fable has an accompanying moral to be learned from the tale.
