Getting Sara Married
Sara Hastings is an unmarried lawyer in her mid thirties, much to busy to get involved in any romance. Her Aunt Martha has decided to take matters into her own hands and find Sara a husband! Unfortunately, Aunt Martha’s methods are unconventional to say the least. She has chosen Brandon Cates and is totally undeterred by the fact that he is already engaged. An angry fiancé, a frustrated lawyer, and the prospective groom suffering memory loss constitute a truly hysterical situation for director Don Mogstad to untangle.
Author Sam Bobrick, started the fun immediately and kept us laughing to the end. (Produced in cooperation with Samuel French, Inc.)
The Tin Woman
Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son, Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. At a friend’s urging, Joy tracks down Jack’s family to find closure. But are Alice, Hank and their daughter Sammy ready to accept Jack’s death? Author of Making God Laugh, Sean Grennan has found light and laughter even in life’s darkest moments. Based on a true story, tears accompany the laughter and humor that is forged by fire! A great success. Directed by Nathan Adkins. (produced in cooperation with Playscripts, Inc.)
Vaudeville Variety Show
Great family fun when we feature the best of music, comedy, parody, hilarity and hi-jinks! At its height, Vaudeville played successfully to all economic classes. By the late 1890’s, Vaudeville had large circuit houses in almost every sizable location and was especially favored in frontier settlements. We are proud to keep this popular and traditional style of entertainment alive at the Opera House Theatre. A summer favorite for the whole family! Directed by D.J. Gommels. (Produced in collaboration with the 2017 Opera House Theatre ensemble)
