ONCE UPON A MATTRESS Runs Sept. 27-Oct. 6

Troy Civic Theatre
Sept. 27-Oct. 6
Troy City Park

Directed by Derek Dunavent

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

CHIVALRY Runs Aug. 2-4

TROY_Chivalry promoCHIVALRY
Troy Civic Theatre
Aug. 2-4
Troy City Park

Written by Todd and Kathy Bryant
Directed by Kathy Bryant

CHIVALRY is a comedy that celebrates geek culture: Dungeons & Dragons, comics, sci-fi, etc. Charlie Angle is a PhD in Medieval history, whose passion in life is his conviction that the tenets of Chivalry need to be revived in our modern culture. He owns and operates a fantasy hobby store that is not doing well financially – a source of stress due to the fact that his wife, Morgan, is pregnant. Charlie is in search of a noble quest when he overhears a conversation about a hidden trunk containing several million dollars in cash (from a drug deal gone bad). The only other person who knows about the money is Charlie’s lowlife neighbor, Rob. Can a group of role-playing geeks outwit an underworld thug at his own game and beat him to the treasure? (There is some mild language and a stabbing)
