THE COLORS OF MY LIFE

Written by Celia Lewis
Inspired by Maine Artist Jennifer Visscher
What would happen if your colorful life literally turned black and white? An artist has her ability to see color taken away and the picture-perfect world she once painted begins to crumble.

HUMBUG! A Spirited Christmas Carol

Written by Michael J. Tobin
THE 2018 HIT "SOLD OUT" SHOW IS BACK! Set in the 1940’s, a touring company of misfit performers get snowbound in a small town they're supposed to perform “A Christmas Carol” in. With half the cast missing and a mismatched collection of costumes, props, and set pieces, they attempt to perform the Dickens’ classic- even though off stage shenanigans make it hilariously difficult. Full of humor, heart, and a happy ending, this holiday hit comedy will capture your inner humbug and fill you with the Christmas spirit!” (HUMBUG! will play Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays and Sunday at 2pm)

YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU

Created by Gary Upton
In this cabaret-style tribute, “You Made Me Love You” is a one-woman tour de force... a loving and affectionate portrait of legendary singer and actress Judy Garland (1922-69). A tragic figure of entertainment who glittered on the outside and recoiled on the inside, our spotlight shines on Judy Garland’s musical and personal life through a potpourri of reminiscences, performances of Garland standards and video clips of Garland herself - including every Judy Garland film in a 14-minute tribute. Start the new year right by taking yourself down the yellow brick road of her incredible life.

BEAR Necessities 
A Play by Michael J. Tobin

BEAR Necessities is a love story… told backwards. One straight. One gay. Exit the best friend. Exit the wife. Exit the ex-boyfriend. Exit the mother.

This play presents conflict and humor as our couple tries to survive life, love and its effects on one’s heart.

WAIT, WHAT?! By Peter Hubbard

Two next door neighbors have sneaked away for a little "afternoon delight". But from the moment they enter the seedy motel room, things don’t go as planned. Mistakes happen, fantasies are badly played out, and decisions are made as the couple take a long look at their relationships, their desires, and themselves. Add to the mix a loony motel owner and an unexpected spouse and you have an awkward afternoon of hilarity- making things go from bad to worse! It's a fast-paced, hilarious relationship comedy... a sexless sex farce- where infidelity has never been funnier!

APRIL 8-16 (CLOSED)
ON A FIRST NAME BASIS by Norm Foster

The result is a dazzling conversation – uproariously funny, full of surprises, and deeply moving. FRIDAYS 7:30pm, SATURDAYS 2pm Matinees and 7:30pm.

SURRENDER DOROTHY

Music and Lyrics by Carole Wise and Book by Michael J. Tobin.
This New Folk Musical takes place in groovy 1969 when 42-year-old Dorothy Gale travels back to Oz because life has not turned out exactly like the sepia 1939 promised. The Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion are back but, like Dorothy, have seen many changes on the yellow brick road of life and love. And no trip back to Oz would be complete without a spell of wickedness! The malevolent Hagatha (the fifth witch no one talked about) is determined to make Dorothy pay for what she did to her sister- and her little dog too. Perhaps there is no place like home… or is there?!
