Absolutely Murder

by Guernsey Lepelley

March 2,3,4,8,9,10,11, 2018

A body, which just won't stay dead, is found in a chest in an abandoned gunpowder factory. This show has all the elements of the classic "dark-and-stormy-night" mysteries - a young girl and her two rival boyfriends, stranger-than-strange strangers, a mysterious doctor, a murderer, and that corpse that just won't stay put! Which boyfriend will Kate decide to marry, who is the murderer, and what the heck happened to that corpse!

Don’t Dress for Dinner

by Marc Camoletti and Robin Hawdon

June 1,2,3,7,8,9,10, 2018

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

Avenue Q

Book by Jeff Whitty / Music and Lyrics by Jeff Marx & Robert Lopez

November 9,10,11,15,16,17,18 2018

This laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive “purpose in life.” This is Sesame Street for an adult audience!
