Play On / A Farce by Rick Abbott
11/7/2014 - 11/23/2014
Directed by Harry McClane
A small community theater group is trying desperately to put on a play in spite
of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script.
Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress
rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that
can go wrong does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the
modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap
climax to this thoroughly hilarious romp.

The Futrelle Sisters of Fayro, Texas are throwing a wedding. Mother-of-the-Bride Frankie is almost sick from her elaborate preparations for the antebellum-inspired wedding. In spite of her own marital problems, Frankie has held steadfastly to the hope that she can pull off one "final Futrelle occasion" with elegance and style. When word reaches the church that Tina Jo and her fiancé have fled Fayro and eloped, Frankie realizes there is no longer any chance of elegance and style; the family just needs to escape this nightmare as soon as possible. This comedy makes audiences gasp with laughter and wipe their streaming eyes as they witness the ridiculous shenanigans of this family’s misguided attempts to create a wedding to remember.

Directed by Linda Talluto
Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of the efforts of her grown-up stepchildren to get their hands on it. Mrs. Savage is determined to establish a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams. The stepchildren commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses." In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage meets men and women who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. Mrs. Savage quickly realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them. The self-seeking stepchildren are maddened by their vain efforts to browbeat Mrs. Savage, but she leads them on a merry chase. This gentle comedy leaves audiences feeling that kindness and affection still exist in a world that seems motivated at times only by greed and self interest.
