Out of the Frying Pan

Written by Francis Swann

Directed by Andrea Wilkerson

Three young men and three young women share an apartment in all innocence; they are would be stage folk and they are doing this for economic security. Their apartment is immediately above that of a Broadway producer who is about to cast a road company. They rehearse the play but how can they get him upstairs to see it? It happens that the producer is an amateur chef and, right in the middle of a culinary concoction, he runs out of flour. He comes upstairs to borrow a cup. At last the kids have him and they aren't going to let him go until he sees some evidence of their ability so they stage a murder. It is so realistic that police swarm into the scene with hilarious results.

All tickets - $14.00

The Treasure of Shiver River - A Christmas Jamboree

Written by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus

Directed by Jan Palmer and Dee Smith

This is the freshest old-fashioned mellerdramer we’ve seen, and it’s laugh out loud funny, to boot!  All the traditional plot elements are here.  From the nasty scoundrel Rod Enreel, who will soon take over the Shiver River Ranch and find the hidden treasure if Colonel Sanders can’t sell his cattle to come up with the mortgage money, to heroic Marshal Marshall Law, who would love to propose to Heidi Claire, the colonel’s daughter, yet he can’t.  And yes, there’s always the vile option for Heidi to marry the black-hearted villain, though he only plans to do her in and abscond with the treasure and his romance novel-loving partner-in-crime, Paige Turner.  

Adults: $14 each; Students 16 and under $9 each  

 
Kings of Unionville
Already Ran - March 2017
Kings of Unionville

Written by James R. Kuhl

Directed by Dawn Sabourin

The action takes place in a tacky wood-paneled basement in the small town of Unionville, Michigan, where the group meets to drink beer, play euchre, drink beer, exchange insults and worn-out jokes, and drink more beer. The members, all descendants of the original “kings” who founded the society about 150 years ago, are more akin to court jesters than royalty, although they try to retain some small shred of the dignity their ancestors brought to the original club.
