RADIO GALS

A musical by Mark Hardwick and Mike CRAver
Directed by Suzie Hansen

Oct. 11-13 and 18-20 at 7 p.m. Oct. 21, 2018 at 2 p.m.

In the twenties when radio ruled the airwaves and small stations thrived, music teacher Hazel C. Hunt received a transmitter as a retirement gift and station WGAL was born in Cedar Rapids, Arkansas. Twenty one original songs performed with thematic props produce the zany hilarity you expect from the creators of Pump Boys and Dinettes and Smoke on the Mountain.

“Keeps the music, country humor, conflict and romance coming fast enough to charm the ear and occupy the eye.” --NEW YORK TIMES

A Doll’s House,
Part 2

“A smart, funny and utterly engrossing play” by Lucas Hnath
Directed by James Douglass

March 7-9 and 14-16  at 7 pm and March 17, 2019 at 2 pm

The play begins with a knock on the door--the same door that was slammed shut 15 years earlier when Nora left home at the end of Ibsen's play. Nora has returned. After leaving her husband, children and nursemaid to become what appears a successful feminist novelist, why would she possibly want to return?

“…lucid and absorbing…Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting…the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility.” —Time Out NY

From the writing team that brought you Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally and based on the book by Ilene Beckerman this critically acclaimed play is "so funny and so powerful; so dear and sweet; so remindful of our female wiles, our worries, our insecurities, our remembrances of mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers—I think it can't miss." —WowOwow.com
