A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder

We open our 2019 season with an area premier musical comedy, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder! Nominated for ten Tony Awards in the 2014 season, this uproarious musical comedy explores the life of the lowly-born Monty Navarro, who has just discovered that he is eighth in line for an earldom. Monty figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing Monty's mind… Called a "morbidly hilarious" musical by USA Today!

BATTLE OF THE DECADES: You'll see a knock-down drag-out of hits from groups like INXS, Boston, America, Carol King, The Cars, The Police, The Rolling Stones, Cyndi Lauper, and dozens more - performed LIVE for a sing along encouraged audience.

Noises Off

Prepare to meet a hilarious group of second-rate actors – the touring company of Nothing On (a play within the play), the night before opening at the (fictional) Grand Theatre. The actors struggle every which way with entrances, exits and getting props in their right place at the right time. As tensions mount the actors leave us wondering…will they get it right before opening night ? A madcap tour of the run of the show follows, with missed cues, fluffed lines, slamming doors, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figuring in the plot of this riotous, uproarious comedy. Note: contains mild adult themes Fridays, Jan. 11 & 18, 2019 at 8pm Saturdays, Jan. 12 & 19 at 8pm Sundays, Jan. 13 & 20 at 2pm By Maurer Productions OnStage.

Godspell

Godspell, the classic musical, to benefit children with cancer through the Ashley Lauren Foundation. Based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, Godspell was the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden. Godspell is the narrative of a small group of people who help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, love and salvation come vibrantly to life.

On the night of the party we will offer a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle, so you can take home goodies and support the theatre at the same time!
