Our 2014 Season!
Welcome to Mitford by Robert Inman

Adapted from the Mitford novels by Jan
Karon - directed by Sue Ellen Gerrells
Father Tim Kavanagh is the much-loved bachelor rector of Lord's Chapel
church in the close-knit mountain community of Mitford, surrounded by
long-time friends parishioners church secretary Emma, housekeeper Puny,
local mayor Esther, a covey of eccentric regulars at the Main Street
Grill, elderly heiress Miss Sadie Baxter, and jokester Uncle Billy and
his dotty wife, Miss Rose, who likes to direct traffic wearing a
military trench coat and rubber boots. Father Tim's life is absorbed
with the life of his town and the pastoring of his lively congregation
As You Like It by William Shakespeare
May 8th - 17th (Homewood Park)
at Homewood Park
Unable to act on their feelings and forced into
exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become
entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.
As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles,
nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how
bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be. The play contains one
of Shakespeare's most famous monologues,
All the World's a Stage' (Act 2, Scene 7).
The Boys Next Door by Tom Griffin
August 7th - 16th
Featuring: Howard Green, David Coker, Greg Hively & Russell Jones
- directed by A. Clay Boyce
An Off-Broadway success, this very funny yet very
touching play focuses on the lives of four retarded men who live in a
communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly
despairing, social worker. Filled with humor, the play is also marked by
the compassion and understanding with which it peers into the half-lit
world of its handicapped protagonists. "THE BOYS NEXT DOOR is one of the
most unusual. .. and one of the most rewarding plays in town." -BackStage.
"Griffin's play hits squarely on the truth of life with its constant
interplays and shadings of triumphs and tears." -NY Daily News. "THE
BOYS NEXT DOOR moves the audience to an awareness of how many things in
everyday life we take for granted .. ." -NY Times.
Christmas Carol High School by Mark Landon Smith
December 11th - 20th
directed by A. Clay Boyce
The classic story of A Christmas Carol is given a
modem twist and set at West End High School, where the campus "Scrooge"
is Meredith Priestly, the most beautiful,most popular, meanest, nastiest
girl in school! With uninterested and never present globe-trotting
parents, the lead in the school production of Romeo and Juliet and Queen
Bee of campus (or so she thinksl) is in need of a reminder of what
Christmas and friendship are about. Visited by five ghosts -- two of
which are Patty and Patrick Prince, two former West End Cheerleaders
from the 1950's -- Meredith is taken on a life changing journey.
