SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2 – 4 pm, our first ever YOUTH IMPROV. All kids from ages 8 – 15 are invited to come get on stage, play games and have fun! The stage is not a scary place, it’s a place to be yourself and MORE! Come give it a try. For our first ever Youth Improv, there’s no admission fee. We ask that a parent be with each child or group of children (no drop offs, please). Our concession stand will be open!

THE SECOND TIME AROUND
by Henry Denker
SEPTEMBER 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23
Senior Citizens Samuel and Laura, a widower and a widow, strike up a love affair. When they announce plans to live together without marrying so they can keep all their social security benefits, their children hit the ceiling. Samuel and Laura’s uptight kids, and THEIR kids and spouses are an assortment of rather neurotic characters. The story is one that many of our audience will see as a familiar and hilarious. All ends well for the elderly twosome, but not before the entire second generation is in nervous fits.
