About the Show
Based on the iconic cult film, CLUE: On Stage is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Featuring all your favorite jokes and one-liners from the movie, Clue: On Stage is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches!

  • MRS. PEACOCK – Churchgoing wife of a Senator, batty, neurotic, quick to hysteria

PLAID TIDINGS Runs Dec. 8-12

LTC_Plaid Tidings logoPLAID TIDINGS
Lebanon Theatre Company
Dec. 8-12
[Lebanon]

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins and leads to posthumous performance.

A short time after, Francis, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for ANOTHER posthumous performance. However, a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites, like their riotous three-minute-and-eleven-second version of The Ed Sullivan Show – this time, featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, as well as a Plaid Caribbean Christmas that puts the “Day-O” in Excelsis!

  • Thu-Sat, Dec. 8-10 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, Dec. 11 at 2pm & 7pm

Auditions Announced for A PLAID CHRISTMAS at Lebanon Theatre Company

LTC_logoAuditions for A PLAID CHRISTMAS are September 12 and 13, from 6:30 to 8p.m.

The cast consists of 4 younger men (play early 30’s or younger) who can harmonize well and can move like the boy groups from the ‘50s. Not as involved as the Temps, but more than just snapping fingers. Singers with personality and humor are a plus for this wacky yet touching show.

​Auditions will be held at our theater, 10 S. Mechanic St., Lebanon, OH.

​Performances will be Dec. 8-11.

HARVEY Runs Sept. 2-11

LTC_Harvey logoHARVEY
Lebanon Theatre Company
Sept. 2-11
[Lebanon]

Directed by Paula Whitaker
Produced by Kate Edington

Cast: Rebecca Ashby as Myrtle Mae, Peggy Allen as Veta Simmons, Randy King as Elwood P. Dowd, Rebecca Morman as Miss Johnson, Elaine Micheal as Mrs. Ethel Chauvenet, Karen Oehler as Nurse Kelly, Rob Willison as Duane Wilson, David Vanderhorst as Lyman Sanderson M.D., Jay Fultz as William R. Chumbley M.D., Carol Rickey as Betty Chumbley, Scott Flannery as Judge Omar Gaffney, Wayne Dunn as E.J. Lofgren & Sam Goldsmith as Orderly

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

  • Fri-Sat, Sept. 2-3 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, Sept. 4 at 2pm
  • Fri-Sat, Sept. 9-10 at 7:30pm
