Our 2017-2018 Season!

The Happy Elf

Written by: Harry Connick, Jr.
November 10-12 & 17-19, 2017

"The Happy Elf" follows the adventures of Eubie, the happiest elf at the North Pole. More than anything else, Eubie longs to be a part of Santa's sleigh team. Instead, he's stuck checking the naughty-or-nice lists. Then, one Christmas Eve, he sees something strange: In the whole town of Bluesville, not a single person has been nice. With a pinch of elfish magic and a magical whoosh, Eubie's off to Bluesville... but can he turn a whole town of naughty children nice in just one day?

Don't Drink the Water

Written by: Woody Allen
February 9-11 & 16-18, 2018

In an unnamed European country behind the Iron Curtain, the American Ambassador leaves the Embassy for business and places his incompetent son in charge. Almost immediately, the Embassy is thrust into a crisis as an American family of tourists come rushing in, on the run from the Communist police. Add a priest that has been hiding in the Embassy for six years, a botched spy exchange, and it's anyone's guess what may happen next.
Presented through special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH

The Hiding Place

Written by: Corrie ten Boom
May 11-13 & 18-20, 2018

Corrie ten Boom and her family were living quiet, ordinary lives as watchmakers in the Netherlands when the Nazis invade and occupy their country. This is the story of this family's efforts to help the Jews that are being persecuted.
Presented through special arrangement with Bradley Winkler.
