2016-2017 Theatre Season at The Harlequin, Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio


 The Birds

by Conor McPherson, after the Alfred Hitcock film

August 10 - September 12, 2016

In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. They find relative sanctuary but not comfort or peace; there’s no electricity, little food, and a nearby neighbor may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside.


Lady Sings The Blues

by Shawn Kjos

September 23 - October 22, 2016   

Travel through the roots of jazz, to the legends of soul from the 40's, 50's & 60's, and into today's blues divas featuring song from the greats... Billy holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Lena Horne, Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Natalie Cole & many more.



Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play

by Joe Landry 

October 29 - November 19, 2016

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.

by Ira Levin 

January 13 - February 25, 2017

Sidney, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

Don't Talk To The Actors

by Tom Dudzick 

April 21 - May 20, 2017 

The best laid plans go awry when the cast and crew of a Broadway-bound play resort to manipulation, diva-like behavior, and chaotic abandon to get what they want. Fledgling playwright Jerry and his fiancée are a couple of Buffalo greenhorns suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of New York's theater scene when Jerry's play is optioned for the big money, ego driven world of Broadway. It's a young playwright's dream, but the crazy characters and dilemmas they encounter are the things of which theatrical nightmares are made.
