Feb. 22-24 & Feb 28 – March 3
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. – Feb/Mar 2019

We start our season with a british farce by Ray Cooney. It features a lead actor (in this case a junior UK minister) who has to lie his way out of an embarrassing situation (in this case a planned adultery with a secretary) with the help of an innocent side-kick (in this case the minister’s personal private secretary), who gets more and more embroiled in the increasingly tangled tale improvised by the lead character as events unfold. The action takes place in a suite in a posh London hotel and revolves around accidents caused by a defective sash window.
April 26-28 & May 2-5
Presented by special arrangement with Bill Breuer – April/May 2019
directed by Mandi Reed
When Thomas searches for his family roots he discovers that he’s inherited a small manor house on a hill in the British countryside that is rumored by the townsfolk to be haunted. Upon taking possession of the house he finds that it is inhabited not by ghosts but by a woman who claims to be a real faery! Not the pixie or sprite of storybooks – she is a powerful, mischievous and sexy woman who does not want him there. She is actively protecting a secret that others are trying to steal. With many plot twists, the story has a surprising and unforgettable ending.
June 14-16 & 20-23
Presented by special arrangement with DRAMATISTS, INC. – June 2019

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. The play focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…

Presented by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING – August 2019
directed by Lynda Daniluk
Four siblings are sent away from London during World War II to stay with their uncle. They stumble upon (and through) a wardrobe into the magical kingdom of Narnia, held in the power of the White Witch, whose evil spell has frozen the land, so that it is “always winter – and never Christmas.” They are embraced by the talking animals, who are awaiting the return of Aslan – the Great Lion, who is their rightful ruler. Aslan, who has long been absent from his land has – at last! – returned, to confront the Witch, and the children are soon caught up in a fierce struggle of good versus evil.

Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. – Sept/Oct 2019
directed by Katharine Coleman
Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. 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.
Nov 29-Dec 1 & Dec 5-8
Presented by special arrangement with BEN CROCKER PANTOMIMES – Nov/Dec 2019
directed by Emily Duberville
We end our season with the classic story of Robin Hood, with a bit of Hansel and Gretal mixed in. This is a pantomime, after all! In order to capture the BABES, the wicked SHERIFF and his henchman, DENNIS have come to the village school run by WINNIE WIDEBOTTOM, the Dame. They are dressed as sweet little school girls and wear belts with assorted weaponry… Boo and hiss our baddys and cheer and clap the cast in our traditional family panto. Singing and dancing. It’s a magical adventure you won’t want to miss!
