TWO ON THE AISLE, THREE IN A VAN
by Mary Lynn Dobson
Directed by Kayleigh Swatzell
April 23, 24, & 25, and 29. 30. & May 1

Welcome to another stellar season at the Neighborhood Actors Summerfun Repertory Theatre, a friendly little playhouse where, due to a lack of wing space, the company spends their downtime in the parking lot around an aging hippie/now turned techie’s van. The members of the company are the egos and obstacles that fall into the lap of Mike, a nice-guy director who ends up with far more than he bargained for. Anyone who’s ever seen a show may know these people. Anyone who’s ever done a show may be these people.

Read all about these fun and uplifting shows!
