On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends — "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" — explain the pro's and con's of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. —MTI

Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling

Sept. 18 - Oct. 3

directed by Thomas Sheehan

produced by Lou Okell & Desirae Carle

This well loved play about a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor is alternately hilarious and touching and—in the end—deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.

"Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue…The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving." —NY Daily News

"...a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked picture of eccentricity in the small-town South…" —Drama-Logue

"...suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy." —NY Post

Performance Dates: Fri. & Sat. nights @ 8PM and Sun. @ 2PM
Sept. 18, 19, 25, 26, 27, Oct. 2 & 3
Free preview for area senior citizens on Thurs., Sept. 17 at 8PM.

Night Mother

'Night Mother

by Marsha Norman

Nov. 6 - 21

directed & produced by Michael Burnett

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

This eloquent, enthralling and ultimately shattering play explores the final hour in the life of a young woman who has decided that life is no longer worth living. —Dramatists Play Service

"...honest, uncompromising, lucid, penetrating, well-written, dramatic, and...unmanipulatively moving..." —NY Magazine

"It is sparse and concise, introspective and penetrating, powerful and uncompromising, intense and intelligent, warm and theatrical. It is THE American tragedy." —New England Entertainment Digest
