A Christmas Story runs for 10 performances December 4-19, 2015. Thursdays,

Plot: Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the
1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder
BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother,
his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee's Department Store. The
consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the
beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental
exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a
wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's
father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's
fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a
theatrical holiday perennial.

Move Over Mrs. Markham
10 Performances January 8-23, 2016

Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm.

To Sylvie it's the "goose" that she learned from Alistair, but to
Philip, Joanna Markham's husband, it's "a variety of geese," and
fifteen years of marriage is just about undone along with everything
else in this wild zany free for all. Everything from Philip's business
deals with Bow Wow Books and Alistair's near escape from
Joanna's chiding seduction to the naked G.P.O. girl and the specter
of scandal is hilarious. A lot of bedhopping occurs as Sylvie winds
up taking Alistair on "walkies" and the amazing Mrs. Markham gets
her man her husband! It all takes place in an elegant top floor
London flat.
All credit cards are charged a small convenience charge.  All Tickets
are held at the door under the name of purchaser.
