Summer 2017 Playbill

Moon Over the Brewery

By Bruce Graham
Directed by Jane Stott

July 20, 21, 22, 28, 29 at 7:30 pm, July 23 & 30 at 2:00 pm

Free spirited single mom Miriam is a waitress in a diner by day, and a painter of moonscapes by night. Her thirteen year old daughter Amanda has an 160 IQ and an imaginary friend named Randolph. Together they plan strategies that keep any prospective suitors for Miriam at bay. Amanda and Randolph meet their match when Warren, an unassuming mailman, comes for dinner. Moon Over the Brewery is a touching, gently humorous study of a precocious teenager’s coming of age that weaves fantasy and reality into a heart-warming play.

Romantic Comedy

by Bernard Slade
Directed by David Parry

August 17, 18, 19, 25, 26 at 7:30 pm August 20, 27 at 2:00 pm

Arrogant, self centered and sharp tongued Jason Carmichael, successful co-author of Broadway romantic comedies, is facing two momentous events: he is about to marry a society belle and his collaborator is retiring. Enter Phoebe Craddock, mousy Vermont schoolteacher and budding playwright. Presto! Jason acquires a talented and adoring collaborator. Fame and success are theirs for ten years and then Jason’s world falls apart. His wife divorces him to go into politics and Phoebe, her love for Jason unrequited, marries a breezy journalist and moves to Paris. Jason goes into professional, financial and physical decline. Re-enter a now chic and successful in her own right Phoebe and guess the ending! “A darling of a play…zesty entertainment of cool wit and warm sentiment.” – New York Post “An utterly disarming, lighthearted confection about love, friendship and theatrical trauma.” – Women’s Wear Daily “It’s brilliant comedy. It’s also a hit. Funniest comedy on Broadway in years.” – WABC-TV
