Driving Miss Daisy DAISY

RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S

Oklahoma! May 4-20

Sep 15-Oct 1 A drama by Alfred Uhry. Directed by Richard Koch. Taking place in the deep South in 1948 just prior to the civil rights movement, this is a warmhearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady and a proud, soft-spoken black man. Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Wertham, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow is informed by her son that henceforth she must rely on the services of a chauffeur. This winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway play gives off a glow of humane affirmation. “Driving Miss Daisy is a total delight!” – NY Daily News.

Agatha Christie’s

Black Coffee Nov 3-19

A mystery by Agatha Christie. Directed by Laurie Follmer. A physicist named Sir Claude Amory has come up with a formula for an atom bomb (Black Coffee was written in 1934!). He is poisoned (in his coffee, naturally) and Hercule Poirot is called in to solve the case. This little-known mystery will surprise and delight Christie fans.

A musical comedy with music by Richard Rodgers, and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Directed by Amy Perdue. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration is set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century. The high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Featuring such well known songs as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, People Will Say We’re in Love, The Surrey With the Fringe on Top, and I Cain’t Say No. “A masterpiece of musical theatre.” – London Daily Telegraph

The Senator’s Wife Jul 13-29

A romantic comedy with music by C. Robert Jones. Directed by Amber dePass. When Louise Larraby, the charming widow of Democratic Senator Ted Larraby, agrees to marry Republican Senator Richard Townsend, the worlds of both families are turned upside down. And then Louise is asked by the governor to fill the remainder of her late husband’s Senate term. The Senate is split 50-50 and if Louise switches parties – as Richard expects her to do – the GOP will have a majority in the Senate. What will she do? The comedic twists are full of fun, songs, and the ever-present cupid!

Erin Mahone, author of Life, Motherhood, and the Pursuit of Sanity 

Sat., Oct. 7, 3:00 PM

Author Erin Mahone discusses her first book, in which she talks candidly about the challenges of growing up in a family where mental illness was pervasive and a sense of humor was an absolute necessity!

Erin's hilarious and heartwarming perspective shows audiences that being perfect is boring, and it's always better to dig deep to find humor and truth in the challenges of life.
