At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line on harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated, but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered. And all hell breaks loose. Noel Coward's Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change.

An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell. Dr. Cristow, the Harley Street lothario, is at the center of the trouble when, assembled in one place, we find his dull but devoted wife, Gerda, his mistress and prominent sculptor, Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star, Veronica. Also visiting are Edward and Midge, whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grows so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead. Nearly everyone has a motive, but only one of them did the deed.

Director: Rachael Lindley
Cast: Emily Cole, Calista Hoyer, Karen Jordan, Logan Gaconnier, K.J. James, Anthony Magee, Budd Mahan, Collin Miller, Sara Austen Muir, Sara Parisa, Gustavo Rodriguez, and Calli Young Windle


A Few Good Men
By Aaron Sorkin
October 14-30
Auditions: Saturday July 9, 2-4pm Sunday July 10, 6-9pm
Callbacks Saturday July 16, 2-4pm
Sign up:

Two Marines are accused of murder. When the two accused plead guilty, Lt. Daniel Kaffee and Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway are assigned to be their lawyers. Galloway doesn’t believe Dawson and Downey came up with the idea to kill; she has suspicions that they were following orders. Kaffee, on the other hand, couldn’t care less – about this trial, about the Navy, or, at first, about Galloway’s opinion. The two need to work together to figure out what exactly happened in Guantanamo Bay – but before they can bring anyone to justice, they need to learn how to work with one another.

Directed by: Janette Oswald
Cast: Chris Berthelot, Joe Cucinotti, Lonnie Davis, Everett Dealy, Kenneth Fulenwider, Ian Grygotis, Indrias Haddis, Janae Hatchett, Brian Hoffman, Andy Looney, Anthony Magee, Blair Mitchell, Gavin Moore, Joshua Nerio, Loren Pontiff, Clayton Rivera, and Robert Sims
