"Buying The Moose"
Comedy, by Michael G. Wilmot
Sept. 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 16
The run time for Buying the Moose is 1 hour, 57 minutes.
This hilarious, tennis-match-like play brings to life the truth that wives often wonder why men do what they do, while their husbands wonder how to get away with doing what they did!
Upon arriving home from a business trip, Betty discovers her husband, Rob, awkwardly "canoodling" an inflatable doll, which is donning one of Betty's dresses. After Betty assumes the worst, and Rob's attempt at an explanation only exasperates the situation, Rob ends up "out in the cold". In dealing with the aftermath of his blunder, Rob resorts to bending the ear of, and sharing a case of beer with, his brother, Greg. Meanwhile, Betty, and Cheryl (Greg's wife) ponder Betty's shocking discovery while sharing a tub of ice cream and a glass or two… or three… of wine.
Eventually, Greg and Cheryl are pulled into the chaos and the stakes get even higher as beer, wine, accidental voice mails, a mixed up mess of "he said/she saids" and exposed secrets, tangle the proverbial web, to create a fast-paced and hilarious rumpus! As one husband's well-intentioned blunder, spins out of control, the audience is kept bouncing back and forth between the men sitting on Rob's front porch and the women on Cheryl's, resulting in a side-splitting, fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable theatrical experience!
Thriller, by Ira Levin

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

Lillian Boedecker Barron is 84 years old, vibrant, funny, wise, and recently deceased! During her lifetime, Lillian shared a special, long-distance bond with her granddaughter, Kelly, and suffered an estrangement from her son Windsor, a Colonel in the Air Force, as he moved his family from base to base all over the world. After her death, Lillian discovers that she cannot "move on" until the rifts are somehow mended. Windsor and Kelly come from overseas to settle Lillian's affairs and are aghast to discover that the walls of her house have been painted with wild, sometimes humorous, sometimes horrific murals and drawings. As they unravel secrets of the paintings, the two make astonishing discoveries about themselves and a special relationship between Lillian and a neighborhood child. This powerful, poignant play explores the wonder of words and the transformative power of art as it offers humor and hope to anyone who is, or has ever been, a grandparent, parent, or a child.

Tickets on sale March 25, 2019
A tribute to the great English farces of the 1930's and 1940's, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with… golf.
