She Stoops to Conquer

by Oliver Goldsmith

May 1, 2, 3*, 8, 9, 10*

One of the greatest romantic comedies of manners. A young man comes to the country to court the daughter of a friend of his father's. Although well-bred, he is shy around women of his own standing, but a rake around 'women of another sort.' He is fooled into thinking that the old-fashioned house he is to visit is actually an inn, his father's friend is the Innkeeper, and his potential betrothed a barmaid. Comic hijinks ensue.

Bad Seed
by Maxwell Anderson
directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell

Christine Penmark seems to have it all, a loving husband, a beautiful home, and the perfect daughter, Rhoda. But when a child drowns under suspicious circumstances, the whole town starts to speculate about what really happened… was it truly an accident? Was it a classmate? Who knows more than they are telling? Christine’s secret past is revealed and the fear grows to a chilling finale in this psychological thriller.

At a gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
