Ferdinand, the King of Navarre, has decreed that his court shall be “a little academe” dedicated solely to intellectual pursuits and scholarship, and that for three years it will be free of all the usual distractions from learning, including women. The Princess of France and her court arrive in Navarre, the very next day, to negotiate the repayment of a debt, but they are denied entrance and kept waiting outside, in a field. Her Royal Highness is not amused. Naturally, the King and his Lords are immediately smitten with the Ladies of France and struggle to keep their oaths while falling deeply, madly, and most ridiculously in love. There’s also a Spanish braggart desperately in love with a dairymaid, a schoolmaster in love with the sound of his own voice, a curate in love with the schoolmaster, a Dull constable, and a young swain with a plan.

All in all, Love’s Labor’s Lost is both silly and sincere, heartwarming and bittersweet, a delightful exploration of the language of love.

Characters:
• FERDINAND. The King of Navarre. Charming, sincere. Somewhat grandiose.
• BEROWNE. A Duke attending the King. Brilliant, acerbic, witty even.
• LONGAVILLE. A Duke attending the King. Tall. Self-assured. A little blunt.
• DUMAINE. A Duke attending the King. Good-natured, innocent. Horrible poet.

• KATHERINE. A Lady attending the Princess. Calm, cool. Gives as good as she gets.
• MARIA. A Lady attending the Princess. Not a problem that needs to be solved.

• DON ADRIANO DE ARMADO. A Spanish braggart. Whole volumes in folio.
• MOTE. A Page attending Armado. Quick. Playful. Devoted to Armado.
• COSTARD. A country swain. Easy going ladies man. Has a plan.
• JAQUENETTA. A dairymaid. The object of Armado’s affections. She doesn’t mind.
• SIR NATHANIEL. A curate. Eager and curious. Easily impressed, mostly by himself.
• HOLOFERNES. A schoolmaster. Erudition itself. Loves an audience.
• ANTHONY DULL. A constable. Has trouble seeing. And talking. And dressing himself.

Our Next Show!

Shakespeare's "Love's Labor Lost"

Directed by Jim Faust

July 26th - 28th, 2019


One of Shakespeare's early comedies!

Ferdinand, the King of Navarre, has decreed that his court shall be “a little academe” dedicated solely to intellectual pursuits and scholarship, and that for three years it will be free of all the usual distractions from learning, including women. The Princess of France and her court arrive in Navarre, the very next day, to negotiate the repayment of a debt, but they are denied entrance and kept waiting outside, in a field. Her Royal Highness is not amused. Naturally, the King and his Lords are immediately smitten with the Ladies of France and struggle to keep their oaths while falling deeply, madly, and most ridiculously in love. There’s also a Spanish braggart desperately in love with a dairymaid, a schoolmaster in love with the sound of his own voice, a curate in love with the schoolmaster, a Dull constable, and a young swain with a plan.

All in all, Love’s Labor’s Lost is both silly and sincere, heartwarming and bittersweet, a delightful exploration of the language of love.

The 2018 - 2019 Season

Southern Gothic - A Performance of Two One-Act Plays:
"Desire, Desire, Desire" & "Paper Thin"

September 14th - 23rd, 2018


"Desire, Desire, Desire"

Written by Christopher Durang

Directed by Daniel Mainwaring

Another Tennessee Williams parody, from the author of For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls. Blanche DuBois, her nerves shot, is stuck in a house with a slobby Stanley Kowalski, who keeps yelling "Stella!" Stella left for a lemon Coke six years ago and never returned. Blanche tries to seduce a young census taker, but is interrupted by Big Daddy and Maggie from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. A "tart" from The Iceman Cometh shows up as well, irritating Blanche by saying "pipe dream" instead of "illusion." Stella comes back briefly, but departs again, leaving Blanche and Stanley stuck together for eternity.


"Paper Thin"

Written by T.K. Lee

Directed by David Doolittle

Lucrece and Gerald have had a good marriage, in Lucrece's opinion. Late in life, they had one son, as they'd planned, and now, after watching Gerald recover from heart surgery, Lucrece has reminded Gerald of another thing they'd planned on: Getting a divorce. Lucrece has made her mind up, Gerald is being dogged into it at every turn (he did promise after all) but their son, Charlie, isn't so sure he can live with it. Set on top of the roof of Lucrece and Gerald's house, on a dairy farm in the small hills of north Mississippi, Lucrece explains how Life Goes On to her son, over a bottle of peppermint whiskey, and the importance of finally winning at the game of What If.


"Tom Jones"

Written by David Rogers

From the Book by Henry Fielding

Directed by Susan Vinson

October 26th - November 4th, 2018

Auditions: August 26th and 27th, 2018

Young Tom Jones, foundling and ward of Squire Allworthy, is deeply in love with Sophia and she with him, but her father has arranged for her to marry the Squire's sneaky nephew (and heir), young Blifil. The romance is discovered, Tom is banished and Sophia, with her maid, Honour, sets out to find him. They are followed by Sophia's father, his sister, Squire Allworthy and Blifil. All find madcap adventures on the road to London and meet with many strange characters. The amusing and unexpected solution to their problems captures all the laugh-a-minute hilarity for which Tom Jones is famous.
