"Not Now Nettie"
Blushing bride-to-be, Nettie Tremayne has successfully separated her exasperating eccentric family of best selling authors from her solid, sensible suitor, Franklin Barnes. A sudden summons to the Manor Tremayne, along with a sizeable engagement ring, set in motion a comic collision between the follies of a famously flawed family and the merry mirth of modern matrimony. Fresh from his page to the stage, this original work, written and directed by Jonn Jorgensen, is followed by a rousing dose of our fast and funny VAUDEVILLE VARIETY acts highlighting the music and comedy of yesteryear providing a full evening of fine family fare.
A blistering review by callous critic, Patrick Marlowe, appears to have extinguished the incandescent career of iconic stage legend, Aurora du Montier, while championing the ascent of her lovely young understudy, Paulette St. Clair. When the diva disappears, she elevates pretty Paulette to headliner and cast malicious Marlowe as start suspect in an off-stage thriller of suspicion, seduction and suspense. This witty, wicked “Darling’s” premier performance, written and directed by Jonn Jorgensen, is accompanied by another round of VAUDEVILLE VARIETY acts, offering a double shot of breath taking intrigue and knee-slapping, toe-tapping entertainment for all.
"Lend Me A Tenor"It’s September 1934 and the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. World famous tenor, Tito Morelli, is to perform Otello, his greatest role. He’s late causing a series of mishaps and uncertainty all of which are compounded by Saounders, the general manager, as he chooses a course of action that leaves a broader trail of confusion and mistaken identity. Directed by Jane Fellows, this Ken Ludwig, rib-tickling, romantic comedy, is as said in USA Today, “Uproarious! Hilarious!”
