A wannabe actor and heir to a banking dynasty, Bobby Child is looking for a way to break out. The only single woman in a run-down Nevada town, Polly Baker is just trying to support her father and keep their theater open. Bobby wants to help, but the only reason he is in Nevada in the first place is to foreclose on that theater. So he disguises himself as New York theater mogul Bela Zangler and, with the help of the real Zangler’s dancing Follies, Bobby helps the downtrodden citizens of Deadrock put together a show to save the theater. But when the show looks set to close before opening night, is there anything anyone can do to set things right? This dazzling show full of tap dancing, chorus lines, and standards by George and Ira Gershwin takes you back to the 1930s, when music and dance seemed to be driving the whole world crazy – Crazy for You!
Mysteries Yet Untold
Featuring Trifles by Susan Glaspell and Lafayette No. 1 by Mandy Conner
December 7-8, 2018 at 7:30 pm; December 9, 2018 at 2:00 pm
Join us for an evening of two intriguing one-act plays, each investigating a mystery of sorts that has not yet been solved. In Trifles by Susan Glaspell, we take a glimpse into a gloomy kitchen, where several characters attempt to solve the strangulation of John Wright that has taken place. While the County Attorney, Sheriff Peters, and a neighboring farmer named Mr. Hale investigate the house for clues, the real sleuths turn out to be Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters. Though the menfolk continually make fun of the women for worrying out female things, like the quilt and unfinished housework, it is the ladies’ attention to “women’s work” that allows the women to discover how to crack the case. Mandy Conner’s Lafayette No. 1 transports us back to 1816, where the yellow fever epidemic has seized New Orleans. Lizzie Landry seems to be the sole person to think of the orphans known as the Forgotten, even though local police and politicians think of them as nothing more than a nuisance. When the epidemic touches Lizzie’s life, she joins with the Forgotten to fight against the lawmakers, holding them accountable for their defenseless citizens and uncovering pieces of her past along the way.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
by William Shakespeare

Love is in the air in the city of Athens, but it is not without its complications. A young woman wants to marry her true love, but her father has chosen someone else. A young man is pursued by a young woman in whom he is not interested. The king and queen of the fairies are fighting, causing chaos all around them. A group of amateur actors are rehearsing a play for the wedding of the duke and duchess, only to be foiled by their own inadequacies. A group of friends find themselves in a love quadrangle facilitated by a mischievous fairy. What will come of this strain between friends, lovers, and strangers, and between the fairy world and human world? In William Shakespeare’s widely-performed classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream, love can make fools of us all, but it may also win out in the end.
