It’s Christmas Eve in America’s heartland, and radio host Bjorn Gundlarrsen is preparing for the telethon performance that will keep his tiny polka station afloat. Unfortunately, the prize troupe of British actors he’s hired has all fallen ill due to a dastardly combination of indigestible foreign meats.

Barrymore’s Ghost

by Jason Miller

November 3rd, 4th & 5th at 7:30pm

You’ll laugh, and you’ll cry as you are masterfully guided through triumphs and heartaches of legendary John Barrymore who is synonymous with American theatre and film, and of course, Hamlet.

When “Barrymore’s Ghost” landed in Jud Harmon’s hands shortly before he shipped out for deployment to Iraq it became the rock that got him through tough times. Having researched John Barrymore years earlier for the role in “I Hate Hamlet” it didn’t take long at all for him to identify with the ”Hollyweird” legend.

2011 August 18th & 19th 7:00pm 20th 2pm

Set deep in a jungle of India, Jungalbook tells the classic story of Mowgli, the human child who is raised by wolves. He is befriended by Baloo the bear and kept under the watchful eye of Bagheera, the lone panther. We follow Mowgli as he learns that he is not actually a wolf but instead a human who must defend himself against Sherakhan, the fearsome tiger who killed his parents.

He is forced to choose between defying jungle law and facing the consequences, or leaving the jungle forever.

Almost Maine

by John Carianni

2011 March 31st – April 9th 7:30pm

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
