Fools by Neil Simon

Nov. 3 -6  &  Nov. 10 – 12, 2016   

STUPID CAN BE FUNNY AND ROMANTIC

"Stupid jokes have been a staple of Neil Simon comedies, to the point of inanity in his less successful works.  But never has stupidity achieved such joyfully hilarious -- and romantic -- results as in the king of comedy's "Fools."  Vermont Actors' Repertory Theatre opened a charming -- and delightfully funny-- production of Simon's ... comic fable ...  The Rutland community theater aced this one; it's just so stupidly funny.    -- Jim Lowe, Rutland Herald 

Directed by Joanne Greenberg

Marry Me A Little is an intimate musical revue by Stephen 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 MAGANOLIAS by ROBERT HARLING

Apr. 27 - 29  7:30 pm  & May 4 - 6   7:30 pm &  Apr. 30  2:00pm

Tickets: $20    Limited Seating

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 Meitrott.
