Fiddler on the Roof

Book by Joseph Stein, Music by Jerry Bock and Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick

Directed by Keith Soester

The setting for this memorable musical is Anatevka, a small peasant town in Czarist Russia. Tevye, a dairyman, and his wife Golde are one of the hardworking couples of the Jewish community trying to raise their five daughters "traditionally" as their forefathers did. After a pogrom, which takes place at the wedding of one of Tevye's daughters, the community realizes that their old way of life is changed forever and they set out to find new lives in new lands taking with them their few meager possessions and their abiding faith in their God.

This musical contains some of the most memorable songs in the musical theater, including "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker," and "Sunrise, Sunset."

Move Over, Mrs. Markham

By Ray Cooney & John Chapman

Directed by Jim Kirkwood

To Sylvie it's the "goose" that she learned from Alistair, but to Philip, Joanna Markham's husband, it's "a variety of geese," and 15 years of marriage is just about undone along with everything else in this wild zany free-for-all. Everything from Philip's business deals with Bow-Wow Books and Alistair's near escape from Joanna's chiding seduction to the naked G.P.O. girl and the specter of scandal is hilarious. A lot of bedhopping occurs as Sylvie winds up taking Alistair on "walkies" and the amazing Mrs. Markham gets her man - her husband? It all takes place in an elegant top-floor London flat in London.

Are You Being Served?

By Jeremy Lloyd & David Croft

Directed by John Nicolazzo

The play is based on the same characters and plots from the British sitcom that ran from the late 1970's to the early 1980's. In fact, the script is essentially the same as the movie. The department store gang tackles German Appreciation Week and travels to Spain, amongst other wacky adventures. Very punny and at times quite ribald, this play showcases all of the colorful characters from the television series.

August 22, 23, 29, 30, and 31, September 5 and 6

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $15.

Over the River and Through the Woods

By Joe DePietro

Directed by Gina V. Stevens

Nick is a single Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. His grandparents from both sides still live in New Jersey, and he visits them every Sunday for dinner. This is the routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job as a marketing executive, and that he'll have to move away from his loving, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news does not go over well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle for a job, wonder his relatives? Well, his grandparents do their very best - that includes bringing to dinner the lovely and single Caitlin O'Hare as bait. Stay tuned for a surprising ending to this hysterical two-act comedy, fashioned after a Neil Simon hit.
