Black Comedy


By Peter Shaffer
February 16-25, 2018

Directed by Greg Longenhagen

 

It’s 1965 London! Carnaby Street is in full color; Go-Go boots pound the pavements of Soho. A young sculptor, one Brindsley Miller and his upper-class fiancée Carol Melkett plot to impress a millionaire art collector AND Carol’s Daddy by displaying some “temporarily pinched” antiques from a neighbor’s flat and passing them off as Brindsley’s property! All goes awry when the power goes out, the neighbor returns home early and Brindsley’s ex-girlfriend gets a great idea! While Brindsley navigates his small soiree in the dark, his entire life unwinds, shedding new light on his bright future.

This brilliant one act farce by Peter Shaffer offers a great escape into a simpler time when young love, political innocence, and a healthy pour of Gin and Tonic could save the day!

February 18, 24 & 25 at 2:00 p.m.

 

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $7 for students. All seats are general admission.


Your Florida Fantasy


By Zachary Michael Jack
April 13-22, 2018

Directed by Barry Cavin

 

All hail college student genius Matthew Mullenberg, the “Mark Zuckerberg of Kalamazoo, Michigan” and his red-hot Internet start-up YourFloridaFantasy.com. For weeks, the “Matt-man” and his not-so-crack staff—Jerry, Penny, and Ariel—have burned the midnight oil cooking up the perfect beta version of a real-life fantasy set on a southwest Florida barrier island for the mysterious Client X. Once booked into Rusty’s Castaway Cabins, the employees of YourFloridaFantasy find themselves playing unexpected roles in the romantic drama their storyboard set in motion, and true love just won’t stay on script! Ushered into island life by their inimitable senior citizen innkeeper Rusty Hinge, forced to walk the plank by Rusty’s red-hot flame, Ally Monet, and sent on a wild goose chase by the slippery and salty Lee High Acres, the whiz kids behind YourFloridaFantasy.com must find their love lights in a sea of outrageous comedy. Add a prodigiously endowed pirate, a punctual saltwater croc, a vertiginous rodeo queen from Punta Gorda via Punta Rassa, a life-sized Hug-a-hunk-a-love-bear, a peculiarly picky pickpocket, and a precipitous big blow bearing down on Rusty’s fantasy island beyond Pine Island Sound, and this homegrown romp of a rom-com blossoms into a farcical, tropical tour de force.

 

April 13, 14, 20 & 21 at 7:30 p.m.

April 15, 21 & 22 at 2:00 p.m.

 

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $7 for students. All seats are general admission.
