Everything else remains the same. Our prices haven't changed. We've just made getting them easier and more fun.
TICKETLEAP closes on-line ticket sales 90 minutes prior to the start of a show. But we usually have a few seats remaining that you can purchase at the door. So if you miss the cut-off time, come on down and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

Earlier this season:
THE ROOMMATE by Jen Silverman April 21 - May 7, 2023
Sharon, an ageing empty-nester and recently divorced, advertises for someone to share her Iowa home and its onerous expenses. Finding the "perfect" roommate is fraught with pitfalls and laughter. Perfection may be in the eye of the beholder, but the "behold-ee" has her own ideas. Where, exactly, is the "middle ground?"
UNRETOUCHED by Tim Ashby; August 19 - September 4, 2022
Mary’s tragedy has found a home at last in the remains of a state mental hospital, now an underfunded halfway house for indigent adults. Not to be believed is not to exist. But try telling that to Mary’s own mother, whose enraging disbelief descends upon visiting hours like a deafening storm.
Edward Albee's A DELICATE BALANCE; September 30 - October 23, 2022
From the Treasury of American Theater comes one of Albee's classic masterpieces. As a family and their neighbors deal with fears from without and conflicts from within, they struggle to keep that delicate balance between order and chaos. With humor, pathos and eloquence, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a reminder that, although humanity is fragile, it's still important to the reality of our own lives.
THE CHILDREN by Lucy Kirkwood; November 18 - December 11, 2022
Two married and retired nuclear scientists have chosen to live their lives in isolation, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request. This compelling and gripping story explores one's sense of social responsibility and begs the question: What, exactly, does the older generation owe their children? You'll be talking about this one long after the lights go out.
HOLIDAY MUSIC & MUSINGS; December 16, 17, 18, 2022
A festive celebration of family, friends and community with plenty of fun and holiday wine.
THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell; January 13 - February 5, 2023
What constitutes the truth and who gets to decide what it is? A hyper-diligent, fact checking intern and a well-known literary essayist clash in this very funny but oh-so-serious dilemma, with the fate of an important magazine hanging in the balance. An immediate Broadway success, this superbly written, fast paced play will entertain you and demand your attention.
THE PERFECT PARTY by A.R. Gurney; March 3 - 26, 2023
For most of his career, Gurney has aimed his sharp, comedic arrows at the foibles and barely concealed anxieties of the privileged class. In this play, he explores the crises encountered by a former college professor as he tries to snare a perfect review for his "perfect party" from an influential social critic. Mix in some pointed satire, a touch of farce, lots of laughs, and you have a recipe for a rollicking good time. What makes the perfect party? Join us and find out!
