Follies

Book by James Goldman
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by John Zimmerman

Follies invites us inside the first and last reunion of the legendary "Weissmann Girls". As the party unfolds we watch as the ladies reminisce, sing us a song or two from the old days, and confront the ghosts of youth that have lain dormant for years. A true love letter to the historic hey day of the Broadway Follies, the show presents both classic Ziegfeld-style musical numbers and contemporary character songs that provide us insight into these aging performers.

April 27, 28; May 4, 5, 6 (matinee), 11 and 12

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinees start at 3 pm.
Tickets are $18.

Pictures of a final dress rehearsal are now available!

The Man Who Came to Dinner

By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Directed by Jim Kirkwood

Written by Bucks County's own Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, this chestnut of a comedy's plot was inspired by an actual event here in Bucks County. When a freak accident on the Stanley family's doorstep lands venomous radio star and critic Sheridan Whiteside in a wheelchair, the house is under siege from his extended reign of terror. Whiteside completely takes over the house for his broadcasts. Hysteria runs rampant as the convalescing curmudgeon interferes.

June 1, 2, 8, 9, 10 (matinee), 15 and 16

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

Red, Hot & Cole

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter

Directed by John Zimmerman

He's "throwing a ball tonight" and you're all invited, to a "swellegant" theatrical party spanning the life of Broadway's greatest wit, the irrepressible Cole Porter. A scintillating mixture of biography and song, "Red, Hot & Cole" celebrates the great American songwriter who brought style, elegance and sophistication to the stages and soundstages of Broadway and Hollywood, delighting the world with his devilishly clever rhymes, fresh and unexpected melodies and sassy, sexy sensibility.

June 29, 30; July 6, 7, 8 (matinee), 13 and 14

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


Blithe Spirit

By Noel Coward

Directed by Kate Fishman

Writer and society man Charles Condomine has a paranormal predicament. Following a goofy psychic's séance, he's visited by the ghost of his dead wife Elvira, who is determined to wreak havoc on the household. The unexpected turn of events causes domestic differences between Charles and his current wife, Ruth. She can't see the specter and believes her husband's gone mad. It's a hilariously mysterious farce by the master of high-class British comedy, Noel Coward.

September 7, 8, 14, 15, 16 (matinee), 21 and 22

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


The Crucible

By Arthur Miller

Directed by Norman Berger

The 1692 witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts form the basis of this intense, classic drama by Arthur Miller. In the play, a 17th-century Salem woman, supported by local adolescent girls, accuses an ex-lover's wife of witchery. An outstanding piece of American theatrical literature, it also touches on themes that still ring remarkably true in today's society.

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