PUMP BOYS & DINNETTES
August 28 - September 13
Directed by Casey Knight
Book, Lyrics, and Music by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel, and Jim Wann
The 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway. With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars,
piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils.

"Totally terrific...It is such fun." - The New York Post
"A gasser, with buoyant, earthy humor." - New York Daily News
"Totally delightful." - Newsweek
"When the inevitable "closing time' comes along, you'll wish you could stay a while longer." - Christian Science Monitor

THE ODD COUPLE
November 20 - 30
Directed by Catherine Miller Hahn
By Neil Simon
This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
"[Simon's] skill is not only great but constantly growing...There is scarcely a moment that is not hilarious." - The New York Times
"Fresh, richly hilarious and remarkably original. Wildly, irresistibly, incredibly and continuously funny." - New York Daily News

By Noel Coward
Private Lives is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed. A uniquely humorous play boasting numerous successful Broadway runs boasting such as stars Coward himself, Laurence Olivier, Tallulah Bankhead, Gertrude Lawrence, Tammy Grimes,
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
“Gorgeous, dazzling, fantastically funny.” – The New York Times
“A gleaming and gleeful comedy.” – The New York Post
“A brilliant comedy. A very funny play.” – Newsweek
