Driving Miss Daisy                                     September 5 – 29, 2019
By Alfred Uhry

The Deep South, 1948 - just prior to the civil rights movement... Having demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son that she must now rely on a chauffeur. The son hires a thoughtful black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain. Over the next twenty-five years, the two grow close and more dependent on each other. Steadily the dignified Hoke breaks down the stern defenses of the old lady. She teaches him to read and write, and eventually invites him to join her at a banquet in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. At the end, Hoke has a final visit with Miss Daisy, now in a nursing home, where it is movingly clear that they have both have more in common than they ever believed possible—and that the times would ever allow them to publicly admit.  Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, this is a great American play with heart, humor and humanity.

 

The Addams Family                Oct. 17 – Nov. 10, 2019

It’s creepy and it’s kooky!! It’s a hilarious musical! It’s every father’s nightmare! Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And worse, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia! Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. All the lovable characters (and the musical theme) from the classic TV show are here, along with great songs like, ““When You’re an Addams”,  “Where Did We Go Wrong?”, “Just Around the Corner”, “Live Before We Die”  and “Tango de Amor”!

Their neighbor, Fred Gailey, tries to woo Doris by taking Susan to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works.

Filled with humor, spectacle and such beloved songs as "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" "Pinecones and Hollyberries," and "My State, My Kansas," this joyous, heartwarming musical is pure family entertainment for the holidays!
