Odd Jobs

By Frank Moher

November 2 – 17, 2018

Directed by Danielle Dunn-Morris

Tim is a Canadian assembly line cowboy smarting from having been laid off and replaced by a robotic arm. Mrs. Phipps is an elderly former mathematics professor for whom Tim offers to do odd jobs. And Ginette is Tim’s French-Canadian wife, whose determined self-improvement wins her a way out of the complaints department at Sears and into the higher-paying realm of systems analysis. Three good people whose needs intersect… yet diverge. Mrs. Phipps has spent a lifetime exploring the universe with delicate, complex mathematical equations, and the mysterious force (she calls it “goop”) that keeps it all from flying apart.

If Ginette takes the new job, it will require that she and Tim move to another town. But Tim has become more necessary to Mrs. Phipps’ well-being than he intended — and she to his…. The dilemma that threatens their interdependence calls into question everything each one of them believes. Experience these likeable characters as their worlds collide, embrace, and seek the “goop” that holds them together.

When Santa is trapped by zombies (who have somehow gotten into the North Pole toy shop) two reindeer fawns are determined to save the day. But as they make their way through the toy shop encountering wayward zombies and stranded elves, they learn that saving the day is not as easy as it sounds. And it’s certainly not like any video game they’ve ever played. And why is that zombie eating a doll’s head?

A show for the whole family.

Trying

Judge Frances Biddle is a crusty octogenarian in very poor health who was Attorney General under Franklin Roosevelt. He just can’t seem to find the right person to assist him in organizing the papers and experiences of a brilliant career. Many have tried, but none have managed to outlast his intimidating manner.

Just as he despairs of finding someone who can meet his expectations, Sarah Schorr, a 25 year old, plain-spoken girl from Saskatchewan, arrives at his office. Has Mrs. Biddle finally found someone with the gumption to handle this curmudgeon? Set in Georgetown, Washington, DC, in November 1967, Trying is based on playwright Joanna McClelland Glass’ experience working for Judge Biddle. It is a beautifully written, heart-warming story of a growing relationship with understanding and mutual respect.

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Lend Me a Tenor

April 26 – May 11, 2019

Julia Body

Directed by Julia Body

It is 1934 and Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous Tito Morelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders believes he’s dead.

In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades his assistannt, Max, to get into Morelli’s costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli awakes and gets ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
