Although we are not able to announce the name of the show quite yet, we are very excited to have Angelo on board. We’ll be back with a special announcement to release the complete season soon!
We are excited to open our season in September 2023 with a familiar favorite: “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling, directed by Megan Horton. Megan is excited to give new life to “Steel Magnolias” and dazzle audiences with a lot of humor and a lot of heart.
In November 2023, jef brown will direct “The Book of Will” by Lauren Gunderson. “Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, ‘The Book of Will’ finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.”
Next, in January 2024, we will warm audiences up with some laughter as we present the farcical “Rumors” by Neil Simon, directed by Ed Cohen. “When they gather to celebrate a tenth wedding anniversary, four New York power couples experience a severe attack of Farce.”
March 2024 will be a *thrill* you won’t forget, as we present “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin, directed by Jerry Wiesenhahn. We are excited to bring to our audiences the “twists and turns of devilish cleverness” that make up “Deathtrap”, with “hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.”
After the thriller, we are cranking up the laughs in May 2024 with door slamming comedy of “Boeing Boeing” by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross & Francis Evans. Mark Femia will direct this 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage, which features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline hostess with frequent “layovers.” He keeps “one up, one down, and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time.
Finally, we will close out the 2023-24 season with a show we cannot yet announce, to be directed by Angelo Cerniglia in July 2024. We look forward to announcing it just as soon as we are able!
