Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew. A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

"Godspell" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

Dial 'M' for Murder

by Frederick Knott

Directed by Steffanie Vaughan

Tony Wendice, a former tennis pro, married his wife Margot for her money, and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect crime, blackmailing an old acquaintance into strangling her and arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. But when things go drastically wrong, with Margot surviving the attack and her assailant dying instead, Tony sees another way to guarantee her death and his wealth: making sure she is convicted of his old friend's murder. Will he succeed… or will his plot be foiled?

"Dial 'M' for Murder" is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. www.dramatists.com

Plaza Suite

by Neil Simon

Directed by Gregg Vogelsmeier

Three couples successively occupy the same suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York. A suburban couple return on their anniversary to the suite in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before, in an attempt to revitalize a struggling marriage. A Hollywood producer calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little diversion, but she proves to be more than the match he bargained for. The mother and father of a bride-to-be argue about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where their guests await.

"Plaza Suite" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

February 10-12, 17-19, & 24-26, 2023


by Kernersville playwright Bill Cissna

Directed by Diana Marshall Shoaf

Wilmertown Community Theatre is busy preparing its production of Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband" -- but in the tradition of community theater, problems abound from early on in the rehearsal process. With memory-challenged actors, feuds and flirtations among the cast, no budget, and a stage manager who's losing it, the backstage antics threaten to spill onto the stage as the show tumbles towards a catastrophic opening night. It will take a miracle to bring it all together. Will the show go on?

"Rehearsals" is presented by arrangement with Bill Cissna. www.billcissna.com
