The Odd Couple

By: Neil Simon

January 15-31, 2021

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. “The Odd Couple” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

Ripcord

By: David Lindsay-Abaire

March 12-28, 2021

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. “Ripcord” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services, Inc. New York.

The Jukebox Diner

By: Eddie McPherson

(Teen Theatre)

June 4-13, 2021

The one-liners and puns never end in this hilarious comedy! Everyone in town is eager for Shelby, a big-time country-music star, to arrive from Nashville to attend Uncle Roy’s memorial service. Hoping to convince Shelby to move home, get married, and have a family, Shelby’s mother sets her up on a blind date with Luke Duncan, a thrice-divorced ex-con who works at the local hardware store. Meanwhile, Shelby’s brother makes plans to leave the diner to pursue a singing career in Nashville, but no one has the heart to tell him he can’t sing including his friends, a Mr. Potato Head model and a mountain man/aspiring stand-up comedian. Then on the day of the memorial service, everyone discovers Uncle Roy was a bit of a womanizer when all his girlfriends show up wearing identical dresses, Uncle Roy’s secret son is revealed, and Uncle Roy arrives at his own memorial service in the form of a cake! Produced by Big Dog/Norman Maine Publishing, LLC.
