Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers… it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick, smart, extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through loud and clear with never a dull moment. There are secret chambers, secret panels and trap lids galore. They’re all operated by the most ridiculous contrivances and gloriously mucked up…A high, mad melodrama.

CAST Players holding auditions for Sylvia by A. R. Gurney March 18 and 19 at 7 p.m.
Performance Dates: May 1, 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17

A hilarious commentary on mid-life angst, and the role pets play in our lives. A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog.

Greg and Kate are city-dwellers who are adjusting to their “empty nest”. Kate’s career as an academic is taking off, while Greg is being transferred to ever more meaningless and unsatisfying work. In a walk in the park, Greg finds an adorable pooch named Sylvia (who is played by a human). She immediately establishes herself as Greg’s constant companion. Sylvia does what all dogs do; love unconditionally, act upon instinct and demand attention………relentlessly. Kate recognizes a rival for Greg’s affections and a threat to her marriage, and tries to get Greg to give Sylvia up. Soon Greg must choose between wife and dog – not an easy decision. Sylvia becomes a bone of contention, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.

A musical version of Jonah? Must be for little kids and feature a singing whale, right? Not this time. Pursued – A Jonah Story, opening Feb 20th at Gold Leaf Theatre, examines the surprisingly moving, even disturbing, themes found in the dense gem of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament that is the book of Jonah. The story is richly re-imagined in the world of Dalaytha, a proud country now conquered by the cruel opulent Zoresh. When Jonas, a Dalaythan resistance fighter, is called by God to preach repentance to the hated Zoresh, he runs. And God pursues, going to astounding lengths to try to heal this one angry man. With powerful music and an immersive set design, this musical takes theater-goers on a deeply personal journey into the inherent unfairness of grace, the inevitable harshness of justice and the struggle it is to heal the seductive toxicity of hatred. This isn’t about a whale. This is about timeless themes as relevant in the 21st century as they were in the days of Ninevah.

Feb 20 – 7:30 pm
