2017 Season 

Princess Whatsername March 24, 25, 31, April 1, 7 & 8 at 7 pm
                                        April 2 & 9 at 2 pm

Please note! The evening performances for this show begin at an earlier time than usual. Evening shows for Princess Whatsername will begin at 7 pm

In this play, classic fairy-tales are mixed with comedy, music , mystery and adventure.  It begins in the Misty Forest, where a girl is sleeping all alone.  But when she wakes, she can’t remember  where she’s from, how she got here or even her own name!  She embarks on a journey to discover her identity and meets several fairy-tale characters along the way — Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin,  Cinderella and Rapunzel to name a few.  Some are helpful, some are dangerous and some are just plain weird, but all help our young girl learn her true identity as a princess.  As with any good fairy tale, there’s also a prince!   A rocking musical score adds even more fun to new takes on the stories everyone loves.

Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife.  The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever     November 24, 25, December 1 & 2 at 7:30 pm 
                                                    November 26 & Dec 3 at 2 pm

Laughs abound in this bestselling Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or “the worst kids in the history of the world.” The siblings take over the annual Christmas pageant in a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy kids.

Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys Herdman are an awful bunch. They set fire to Fred Shoemaker’s toolshed, blackmailed Wanda Pierce to get her charm bracelet, and smacked Alice Wendelken across the head. And that’s just the start! When the Herdmans show up at church for the free snacks and suddenly take over the Christmas pageant, the other kids are shocked. It’s obvious that they’re up to no good.
