Just sit right back and you’ll see a tale of a fateful trip, with seven familiar passengers, but with a few new twists! Join Captain Clipper; his first mate Gulligan; the billionaire Houston Powell and his wife; the movie star Scarlett Rooney; the dean; and the sweet farm girl Kari Ann Winters in this parody full of laughs and adventure. The castaways have become stranded on a deserted island with no cars, no lights, not even Facebook! What may be worse than the lack of comforts is the sad fact that the marooned passengers are unable to celebrate Christmas properly. How can you decorate a palm tree? Can you achieve a white Christmas with sand instead of snow? Are coconuts useful for making eggnog? These questions leave the castaways wondering… what makes Christmas “Christmas”? The arrival of a new castaway might hold the key to their rescue, however, strange messages are left in the sand, leaving the castaways anxious and wondering about who wrote them. As they search for a way off the island, they find a truer path, and the retelling of Christ’s birth is told by the most unlikely of sources.

Annual Dinner Theatre Fundraiser

Directed by Cindy Ward


Auditions for boys and girls - must be old enough to read without parent's assistance

Grandpa's a little out of practice when it comes to babysitting, but if he's ever going to get his bouncy grandkids to go to sleep, he's got to remember some bedtime stories fast. Or at least something pretty close to them. Meet the Witch who lives in a house made of broccoli, the magical fairies Lipitor and Miralax, and Jack who climbs a beanstalk - and needs a little help from the stage crew to get down. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Grandpa tells them.

Rehearsals will begin the week of February 7, 2022

Performance: Dinner Theatre Fundraiser on Saturday, April 2, 2022 at the Event Building at the old Canadian Fairgrounds.

The-Wild-Women-of-Winedale-.jpg

Ladies, this is a great opportunity for a Girl’s Night Out! Grab your friends, your mom, your sisters, your grandmas, and your aunts and get ready for a couple of hours of laughs!

Performance dates: March 5-6 and 11-13

Directed by Doug Richardson

This joyful and exuberant, yet ultimately touching, comedy focuses on three women at crossroads in their lives—the Wild sisters of Winedale, Virginia—Fanny and Willa and their frustratingly quirky sister-in-law Johnnie Faye. This feisty and fun-loving trio has supported and cheered one another through life’s highs and lows through the years, including the early demise of two of their husbands. And they really need each other now, as Fanny experiences a hilariously inappropriate reaction to her 60th birthday, while Willa is so stressed out from her nursing job she resorts to vodka and speed-knitting to cope, and Johnnie Faye, determined to put her year of fraught widowhood behind her, desperately tries to find a man—preferably a man with a house, since hers is somewhere at the bottom of a Florida sinkhole. These women’s lives are further upended by the responsibility of caring for their free-spirited, ailing aunt and the realization that they are drowning under loads of family keepsakes and possessions nobody wants—especially them! With equal doses of hilarity and heart, these extraordinary women come up with delightful and surprisingly unorthodox ways to clear the clutter from their lives, their homes and their relationships so they can move their lives forward. Together they prove it’s never too late to take another one of life’s paths for a grand new adventure. This Jones Hope Wooten comedy is guaranteed to drive you wild with laughter—and motivate you to keep hounding the kids to please take that stack of quilts and Granny’s Christmas china!

Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself -- and us -- that he's not mad. The spell he weaves brings us a highly theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best: "The Raven," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.
