Moon Over Buffalo
By Ken Ludwig
Roles for 4 men, 4 women
In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Plus there is a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing. With this crowd and Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body, what could possibly go wrong? Find out for yourself!

A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol
Book by Walton Jones
Music composed and arranged by David Wohl
Lyrics by Faye Greenberg
Roles for 7 men, 2 women
It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, and set to present their contemporary "take" on Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Whether it's the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, begins to connect his own life with that of the classic Dickens tale. Will it be possible to "save the show," by improvising an ending to Charles Dickens' classic as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale? Will music save the night? Come find out for yourself in this delightful holiday treat that seamlessly combines drama and comedy, heartbreak and hope.

Book by Tom Jones
Music by Harvey Schmidt
Lyrics by Tom Jones
Roles for 6 men and 2 women
A boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and try to find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow." Punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become classics, The Fantasticks, the world’s longest-running musical, is an intimate show with minimal costumes, a small band and virtually non-existent set which engages the audience's imagination in a moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned. And, of course there is delightful comic relief for every serious moment. But you’ll have to come by to discover if the boy and girl will be lost to each other or discover a more mature, meaningful love.
