A side-splitting comedy, Fools is by the master of stage comedy, Neil Simon. The play drops us squarely in the center of a fictitious Russian village living under a curse of stupidity imposed by a hilariously wicked count.  If the visiting hero stays there over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes stupid.  This charming folk tale will have audiences laughing out loud almost to the point of crying.  This lovable town coping with their curse of stupidity is a chance to explore comic acting at its best.  Directed by Joanne Greenberg

Marry Me A Little is an intimate musical revue by Stephan Sondheim. This charming and bittersweet musical revue features songs by Stephen Sondheim, the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical. Two urban singles share a Saturday night of sweet fantasies and deep yearning while never leaving the confines of their solitary apartments. Together they breathe new theatrical life and meaning into a collection culled from the final productions of Anyone Can WhistleFolliesCompanyA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and A Little Night Music. Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, unshared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.   Peter Marsh is the director.and Mary Ellen Harlow is the Musical Director.

Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a "good ole boy." Often hilarious, the play moves toward tragedy in the second act, but resolves with compassion.  The play will be directed by Gary Metroit.
