a "Romantic" Comedy
A. R. Gurney
Greg and Kate are excited to be living in Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. To Kate's dismay, Greg brings home a dog he found in the park bearing only a battered name tag with the name "Sylvia".   Can this marriage be saved? And can Sylvia ever become a realmember of the family? You'll find out in this touching and laugh-filled "romantic" comedy.
January 31 to February 16
The VK Garage Theater
Auditions November 24 & 25 
A Cautionary Musical
Howard Ashman and
Alan Menken 
In this mad-cap adaptation of the classic noir film by Roger Corman, the amazing team of Ashman & Menken tell a Rock-tinged tale of planetary invasion by man-eating plants that became a world-wide sensation and a major motion picture.
You'll fall in love with Seymour, the mild-mannered junior florist and his from-afar love, Audrey. You'll hate the sadistic dentist who treats Audrey so badly, and you might event cheer for "Audrey II," the plant that grows up to threaten all their lives. 
Whatever you do, don't feed the plants!

Auditions February 2 & 3 
A Satire
Paul Slade Smith 
Ned Newley doesn't even want to be governor.  
He's terrified of public speaking, and his poll numbers are 
impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. Seriously.  Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office.  But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things 
differently: Ned can't be elected - unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. 
This is a timely and hilarious comedy that "skewers politics and celebrates democracy."

Watch for a Title Announcement 
Coming Soon

And Then There Were None ...

If you just LOVE an Agatha Christie mystery ... you'll want to mark your 
calendar for August, as we return to the spacious and beautiful stage of The Cailloux Theater to create once again the cunningly crafted

An Intimate History
Lauren Gunderson 
Henrietta Leavitt became one of the most prominent voices in astronomy, and her work was the basis of our ability to measure the distance between stars. In Silent Sky , award winner Lauren Gunderson explores a woman's place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries that changed the way we understand both the heavens and earth.
"[Silent Sky is] a startling, entertaining true story"
"...a lively, funny, accessible play alive with interesting ideas."
"... an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line? Heavenly."

Single tickets for each Main Season production range from $22 to $27, with a child/student discount for musical events. Youth Theater single tickets are priced $10 for adults and $7 for children, except for the Summer Musical Theater Camp show, which is a bit higher.
Three money-saving Ticket Packages are available as well. 
The Full Season Package provides one admission to each of the five Main Season productions at a cost of just $98 per person. Full Season Package holders save 15% over the cost of single tickets, and still determine which of the up to eight performance nights of each show best fits their schedule.
The Flex Package provides a set number of pre-paid admissions that can be used for any show and in any combination. The Flex Package is available in six-, eight-, and ten-admission sizes, and saves up to 12% when compared to single tickets.
A Youth Theater Package with tickets for each of the Youth productions currently scheduled is just $35 for adults or $20 per child, and includes the Summer Musical Theater Camp production. Up to four children's priced packages can be requested per adult package purchased. (This package will be available on line and at the Box Office very soon.) 
As an additional benefit for singing up early, all new or renewing Season Package buyers can pick up tickets to the Special Holiday Production of O Henry's The Gift of the Magi Buy-One-Get-One-Free (up to four tickets - save as much as $44!).
Season Package buyers provide a real boost to our operations each year. By buying early, they provide much needed cash to make advance preparations for the new year, and a boost of energy to help all of the volunteers and staff look forward to a new season.  We hope you'll consider getting your ticket order in soon!
