A joyful reprise of our 1986 hit production, this musical features an all-too-familiar gallery of high school characters who meet at their reunion.  Former athletes, bookworms, beauty queens, and members of the marching band sing out about who they were, and we find ourselves in their musical memories.  This is a show for the kid in all of us!  Recommended for ages 13 and up

2 3, 4*  A Christmas Twist by The Illegitimate Players, directed by Mary Fernandez-Sierra, and Roger A. Ochs.   8PM *except 4th 2PM
A ridiculous blend of two works by Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist.  Added to the familiar parable of Bob Cratchit, Ebenezer, and his spirits is Fagin, Mr. Bumble, and Tiny Twist, a gangly orphan whose crutch keeps getting stuck in floor cracks.  Irreverent and inspired, this spoof mocks the silly sentimentality and commercialism sometimes found in our modern holiday, while reminding us of the true Christmas spirit.  Recommended for ages 13 and up

During an ostentatious wedding celebration, five very different bridesmaids find themselves hiding together in an upstairs bedroom.  They are hoping to escape the wedding reception of a bride that—they soon realize—none of them really like!  As they get to know each other, personal stories, hopes, and dreams are revealed.  These five diverse women discover a common bond in this wickedly funny modern tale of friendship, femininity, and strength.  Recommended for ages 13 and up
21   Board Meeting   Members welcome   7PM

Based on events in Simon's life, this second-time-around love story introduces George, a recently widowed writer, and Jennie, a newly divorced actress.  They are neighbors in an apartment building, and as their friends conspire to get the unlikely pair together, laughter, love, and occasionally chaotic comedy result.  This is the story of love after loss, and how two lonely and lively hearts finally become one.  Recommended for ages 13 and up
