J. F Maddox foundation

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Tickets are on sale for "9 to 5"!

9 to 5: The Musical is a musical based on the 1980 movie of the same name, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. It features a book by Patricia Resnick, based on the screenplay by Resnick and Colin Higgins.  The Hobbs production is directed by Doug Levy.

Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Tickets are $15 for all seats and can be purchased by clicking here.  Shows are June 8, 9, 15, 16 (8 pm) and matinee shows June 10 and 17 at 2 PM.

AUDITIONS: Leading Ladies


Auditions for the comedy Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig, directed by Erin Gibbs, will be Monday February 26 and Tuesday February 27 at 7:00 at the playhouse. Parts are available for 5 men and 2 women. Performance dates will be April 13-14, 20-22.

In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there's a wide world out there, but it's not until she meets "Maxine and Stephanie" that she finally gets a taste of it.

Flowers for Algernon
By David Rogers
Based on the novel by Daniel Keyes
Directed by Veronikka Sylvas

This is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on both Algernon and Charlie increasing their intelligences ten fold. Soon Charlie's intelligence far exceeds that of his teacher, Alice Kinnian and even the doctors who created the operating technique! As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening signs of regression. Soon things become a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new found intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. Will Charlie be able to save himself in time?!
