Six Characters in Search of an Author

By Luigi Pirandello
Directed by Rebecca Waxman with Sandy Klein
Sponsored by Integrated Solar and Twombly Wealth Management


The story begins on a bare stage where a troupe of actors is in mid-rehearsal.  Six individuals break into the theatre and demand an author who will cast them in a play—and literally save their lives. Pirandello's brilliant exploration of the nature of reality versus illusion, truth versus artifice, and the workings of the creative process has been given a wonderfully fresh update in Robert Brustein’s contemporary script.
 “Six Characters in Search of an Author is the most original and dynamic play ever written in any nation, or at any time, whether ancient or modern.” – George Bernard Shaw

Clowns in a Joke Factory

Created and Directed by Stephen Stearns, Bill Forchion and Chris Yerlig, with Tom Yahner, Amy Majer, Maria Pugnetti and Kali Quinn.

Three clowns, fresh graduates from clown school, contemplate their existential dilemma! No work, and heavy school loans to pay off. What to do? Enter the unexpected: the "Acme Toy, Game and Joke Factory” is hiring. Ta Da! In a blink, this trio of goof-offs are trapped in an upside down world where nothing is as it seems and every action produces the least expected reaction. Their schooling gave them clown tools, but nothing to cope with a real-life clown factory where the normal is always anything but normal, and every path is blocked by a sign that says, “you can’t get there from here!”

“Clowns in a Joke Factory” is an original play created and written by sixteen intrepid local middle schoolers under the leadership of Uncle Stevie, mime Chris Yerlig, acrobat-stunt-man Bill Forchion, street juggler Tom Yahner, and performance artist Kali Quinn. What can happen in a factory where a “pie in the face” comes with the job, every floor is waxed; and every step has a banana peel? The answer: anything except the expected. This play will be a barrel of laughs for everyone of all ages and tastes. Come prepared to "cry us a river" of laughing tears; and perhaps even come on stage to help solve an insoluble problem.

Mary Poppins

Cameron Macintosh and Walt Disney's Mary Poppins based on PL Travers and written by Julian Fellowes.
Directed by Hallie Flower
Sponsored by Berkley & Veller Greenwood Country Realtors, Experienced Goods and Winston Prouty

Mary Poppins is the story of the Banks family who live in a big house in London on Cherry Tree Lane. Things are not going well for the family – The parents are at distant odds and the children are out of control and in need of a new nanny. Jane and Michael have their own ideas about what sort of caretaker they should have, while their father is insistent on someone strict for the job. When a mysterious young woman named Mary Poppins appears at their doorstep, the family finds that she’s the answer to their prayers, but in the most peculiar way. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises,  “Anything can happen if you let it.”
