Don't miss this hilarious Christmas quarrel and your last chance to use your 2016 Season Tickets!
The Langfords and the Riders have been friends for years. Even their children are playmates. They completely understand and admire each other -- until Mrs. Rider phones the Langford home and leaves a message with Renee, the youngest, who is so engrossed in a video game, she can't be expected to get the message right! She gets both families embroiled in a serious quarrel, and right before Christmas, too! She finally brings to light what actually caused the misunderstanding and tops everything by filling in at the last moment in the church pageant. The role? “Brotherly Love”!

The Playhouse Board of Directors is pleased to announce our 2017 season!
Potential directors submitted several new shows for consideration and we had a difficult time choosing which ones to present, but we have put together the following exciting season for you!
THE GLASS MENAGERIE by Tennessee Williams, a one-act directed by Nathan Miles for AACTFest
February 16-19, 2017
Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.
THE 39 STEPS by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan, directed by Tyler Bunch
March 31, April 1-2, 7-9, 2017
In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, directed by Christopher Eubank
June 1-4, 8-11, 2017
Once On This Island, an enchanting musical fable, tells the story of forbidden love between people from two different worlds. Originally inspired by Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, the Broadway show transports the story to a Caribbean island where social prejudice divides the island. Presented as a 'play within a play', a cast of village storytellers, attempting to calm a frightened young child, tell the romantic tale of a peasant girl who saves a rich city boy from death.
DISNEY'S MULAN, JR., Youth Performing Arts Workshop directed by Sandy Goad and Ronnie Gray
July 20-23, 2017
Based on Disney’s Oscar-nominated film, Disney's Mulan JR. is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and the fighting spirit. With hit songs and a story packed with action, humor and heart, Disney's Mulan JR. brings ancient China to life with a modern sensibility.
Haunted House, directed by Nathan Gibbs
October 20-21, 27-28, 31, 2017
HEAVEN CENT by George Cameron Grant, directed by Robert Schumacher
December 14-17, 2017
Miracles abound on Christmas Eve when the divine intervention of a well-intentioned but hapless angel brings a homeless teen-age girl and a missionary priest to the same place at the same time.
The Board would like to thank all submitting directors for helping us bring another year of quality entertainment to our community!
