A group of middle-aged buddies reunite for a “guys weekend” in a snowed-in cabin to eat chili, drink beer, and relive the good old days. Despite divorce, unemployment, and a stroke, spirits are high until Jessie, the wife of absent friend Adrian, shows up in his place. An epic battle of wits and stamina ensues: will the men win their right to an all-out guy fest, or will woman be crowned the stronger sex after all? Join us for the first show of our 37th season.

David Tuttle is moonlighting as a department store Santa so that he can buy his wife a fur for Christmas. He tells her he’s working late at the office, but she finds out he isn’t at the office. A suspected other woman, hypnotism, the notorious Santa burglar Kris Kreigle and his gun-toting fiancee, and a confused policeman add up to a rollicking tale that is hilarious Christmas entertainment any time of year.

Winter Show - Wife Begins at 40
By Ray Cooney, Earl Barret & Arne Sultan
It seems that, for some people, forty is a rather traumatic age. It certainly seems that way to Linda Harper. Dissatisfied spiritually and physically with her seventeen-year marriage to the slightly staid George, Linda decides to leave. In fact, it is George who moves out, giving Linda a chance to “find herself”. When George returns to the family home a few weeks later to sort out maintenance issues, he and Linda discover that their passion may not be quite as dead as they thought!

Spring Show -The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
By John Bishop
The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for a backer’s audition at the manor of a wealthy “angel” donor. The house is filled with sliding panels, secret passages, and a German maid who is apparently four different people. All of this figures in to the comedic mayhem that strikes when the infamous “Slasher” makes an entrance. As the actors, crew, and director prepare for their performance, a blizzard breaks out and bodies begin to drop in plain sight. With no help from the bumbling inspector, will the remaining players unmask the slasher before it’s too late?
