Mama, the Musical
There is much joy when a child is born – and trepidation and fear. And then, the parent experiences the emotions of watching that child grow up, become independent, and leave home. A parent has such a huge effect on the child’s life – no matter how old the child! Through words and song, laughter and tears, Mama, the Musical explores the wonderful joys and the overwhelming sorrows of the mother/daughter relationship from both points of view – that of the parent and of the child.
Cast: Mira Are, Cori Andrew, Megan Bellinghausen, Debbie Deverich, Karen Jordan, Robin Liesenfelt, and Darla Meek
One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Savannah Sipping Society
In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate - and an impromptu happy hour - and decide it's high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they've lost through the years.
For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the "fun of the thing," Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak-minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, a perfectly harmless man named Ronald Raglan. They place the body in a wooden chest, and to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few acquaintances, including the dead youth's father, to a party, the chest with its gruesome contents serving as a supper table. The horror and tension are worked up gradually; thunder grows outside, the guests leave, and we see the reactions of the two murderers, watched closely by the suspecting lame poet, Rupert Cadell. Finally they break down under the strain and confess their guilt.
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." But wait! A mouse is stirring - because Santa missed his house last year. Before you can say "Merry Christmas!", we're off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won't take no for an answer. Don't miss this joyful tribute to the holiday season!
Arsenic and Old Lace
We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other brother—these require no further description or amplification here.
Death By Design
What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingénue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
Director: Rachael Lindley
