Cheaper by the Dozen February 10th to March 5th      

Directed by Bennie Nipper

February 10 – March 5, 2017  

Friday & Saturday 8:00 P.M., Sunday 2:30 P.M.

This play tells the story of time and motion study and efficiency experts Frank Bunker Gilbreth and Lillian Moller Gilbreth, and their twelve children, as they reside in Montclair, New Jersey for many years.  The title comes from one of Frank Sr.’s favorite jokes:  it often happened that when he and his family were out driving and stopped at a red light, a pedestrian would ask, “Hey Mister!  How come you got so many kids?”  Gilbreth would pretend to ponder the question carefully, and then, just as the light turned green, would say, “Well, they come cheaper by the dozen, you know,” and drive off.

Let’s Murder Marsha January 6th to 29th

A happy housewife named Marsha, hopelessly addicted to reading murder mysteries, overhears her loving husband discussing her upcoming birthday surprise with an interior decorator. To her ears, though, it sounds like they are planning to murder her! With the assistance of her next door neighbor she tries to turn the tables on them with a poisoned potion. When her own mother shows up for her birthday a day early, Marsha thinks she is in on the diabolical scheme. When her maid’s date, a policeman, shows up to take the maid out, Marsha thinks he is on to her poisoning attempt. Well, finally, just when you would think all this would be cleared up, Marsha’s intended victims discover what she has supposed, and decide to teach her a lesson by actually pretending to be murderers. This is a terrific show for family audiences who like their comedy broad, fast and nonstop.

Noises Off September 30th to October 3rd

The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium. – The New York Times

Bumper car brilliance…If laughter is indeed the best medicine, Noises Off is worth its weight in Cipro. – New York Daily News

The funniest farce ever written! Never before has side-splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non-metaphorically medical. – The New York Post

As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever. – The New York Magazine
