Your Community Theatre's 2014/15 Season


 


 

Deathtrap
by Ira Levin
Directed by Jack Simel

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a "dry" spell that has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

2015 SUMMER READERS' THEATER

Keep Your Pantheon!
by David Mamet
Directed by David C. Woodworth

Keep Your Pantheon is a comedy set in early Roman times from the man who brought us Glengarry Glen Ross, which ventures deeper into sketch territory, recalling the kind of gleefully anachronistic material mined back in the day by Sid Caesar or Carol Burnett. An impoverished acting company on the edge of eviction is offered a lucrative engagement. But through a series of riotous mishaps, the troupe finds its problems have actually multiplied, and that they are about to learn a new meaning for the term "dying on stage."

Strabo: Albert Young Pelargon: Andrew Tubiolo Philius: Rob Miller Herald: Jeff Moon Quintus: Larry Ploscowe Ramus: Donald B. Bartalo Titus: Wyatt Doremus Lupus Albus: Tom Bigongiari

Private Lives
by Noel Coward
Directed by Dianne Schaumberg

"Private Lives" is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed. A uniquely humorous play boasting numerous successful Broadway runs boasting such as stars Coward himself, Laurence Olivier, Tallulah Bankhead, Gertrude Lawrence, Tammy Grimes, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
