Bus Stop
A Romantic Comedy by William Ingre

May 5 - June 10
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 pm

Billed as a “fairy tale for adults,” Bus Stop is a blast from the past -- evoking a simpler time when it was a little bit easier to be innocent. Inge’s hit Broadway play was later adapted into a popular movie starring Marilyn Monroe. A cowboy thinks he has met his dream girl and is hustling her off to his Montana ranch. But the dream girl has other ideas! A blizzard forces the action to be confined to a small diner, where an alcoholic ex-college professor, an oversexed bus driver, a guitar-strumming ranch hand and several other colorful characters share the stage with the conflicted couple.
A mystery/comedy by Don Nigro 

July 7 - August 12
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 pm 

On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women: Marcy, the beautiful Viennese governess with a past; Mrs. Ravenscroft, the flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian, her charming but possibly demented daughter; Mrs. French, the formidable and passionate cook, and Dolly, a terrified maid. They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft.
