In a community-channel television studio, place a cooking-show hostess. Add her son the producer, and a long-suffering camera operator. Now add a second cooking-show hostess. Stir in a large cup of rancorous personal animosity and simmer until the plot thickens. The son, Stephen, tries to keep the weekly cooking show on track, but as long as one star’s dressing room is one inch closer to the set than the other star’s, it’s a losing battle – however, the show becomes a hit!

Lily, the widow of a southern Baptist minister, now lives in Florida. She thinks she can dance. Michael is middle aged and the veteran of a failed career as a Broadway dancer. He now teaches dancing. Both are lonely, cynical and too sharp tongued for their own good. Together they fling their barbs and share their wounded pasts as they Swing, Tango, Waltz and Foxtrot their way to mutual compassion and understanding. In a finale of contemporary dance they toast their new friendship over ‘lemonade and sunset’.

Postmortem
by Ken Ludwig
directed by Gerry Thompson
March 23 - 27 & March 30 - April 3
, 2010
In April 1922, the cast of William Gillette’s revival of “Sherlock Holmes” assembled for a weekend of relaxation at his magnificent medieval castle overlooking the Connecticut River. For entertainment, Gillette, best known for his 30-year portrayal of the famous crime sleuth, arranged a séance. The scene is set for his greatest role: someone is trying to murder him and he suspects it is one of his guests. Intrepid, eccentric and wildly romantic, Gillette plans to solve the case himself à la Sherlock Holmes.

The Underpants
by Steve Martin, adapted from Carl Sternheim
directed by Jim Holmes
May 11 - 15 & May 18 - 22, 2010

How is a poor girl to react when she experiences a very public costume malfunction? That’s the question a beautiful young housewife must face when the momentary loss of her underpants makes her the talk of 1910 Dusseldorf and the target of several men with only one thing on their mind. And what is her husband to make of all this? Steve Martin brings his wild and crazy perspective to this retelling of Sternheim’s hundred year old farce.
