Christmas Songs and Stories
compiled/directed by Thom Hofrichter
November 30, December 1*, 7, 8, 14, 15, 2019
The best loved songs and stories of the Christmas season. Act One has reindeer and Santa, and is secular. Act Two is a stirring reminder of the real meaning of the season, celebrating Christ’s birth through song and scripture. A perfect way to prepare your heart for the Christmas season.

The Santaland Diaries
by David Sedaris, adapted by Joe Mantello • directed by Thom Hofrichter
December 20, 21, 2019 —TWO SHOWS ONLY
A man recounts working as an elf at Macy’s Santaland in NYC. From one of our funniest American humorists, with a satirical style reminiscent of Mark Twain, comes this merrily subversive tale—just the antidote if the holidays have overwhelmed you. Kevin Torwelle reprises his Crumpet, the elf. NOTE: This show is rated R for content.
Kevin Torwelle as Crumpet the elf

Eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam tell firsthand accounts of their actions which resulted in them receiving the Medal of Honor. Beyond Glory gathers these men who look back on the defining moments of their lives, and they teach us the meaning of courage, duty, and ultimately, humility.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
by Tennessee Williams • directed by Brian Ernsberger
February 20**, 21, 22, 28, 29, March 1*, 6, 7, 2020
Auditions: Sunday, November 24 at 6pm
Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winner gathers a family on a steamy Mississippi night to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The tone is gay, but the mood is somber for old evils poison the gaiety—sins of the past, greedy hopes for the future, an eagerness to believe the lies that surround them. An American classic—superb theater.
The Winter’s Tale
by William Shakespeare • directed by Thom Hofrichter
April 16**, 17, 18, 24, 25, 26*, May 1, 2, 2020
Auditions: Sunday, November 10 at 6pm
In Shakespeare’s tale of mystery and magic a jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity, setting off a calamitous series of events. But what begins as tragedy evolves into a fantastical journey—from wrath to redemption to reconciliation. Shakespeare’s fable of hard-won joy and the promise of renewal shows a genius at the height of his powers.
