Rumors

By Neil Simon, Directed by Douglas Kendall Adams


At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce.

Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

What In The Dickens Happened to Scrooge?

By Jerry Cowling, Directed by Michael Carter


A slightly different telling of the story of Ebenezer Scrooge is being offered in December by The Little Theatre of Danville.

What in the Dickens Happened to Scrooge, by playwright Jerry Cowling, finds Ebenezer surrounded by the people most affected by him, as they plan to get him a bit tipsy and play out scenes of Christmases past, present and future to show him the errors of his miserly ways. In the process, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim  and the others also learn a bit about themselves in light of the Christmas spirit.

The play, directed by Michael Carter, will be presented at Schoolfield Museum & Cultural Center..

On Golden Pond

By Ernest Thompson, Directed by Michael Edwards


This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory—but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together.

They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return.

In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
