We are so excited to present our 2021/22 season which has a fabulous line-up of original productions, including musicals, comedies and reinterpretations of classic plays. We return to Reynold’s Tavern on May 17th. Our schedule also includes monthly Cabaret performances, featuring a new theme and guest Broadway singers each month.
Also we are proud to return to the lovely Gresham Estate for our Epic Outdoor Shakespeare: As You Like It. The Gresham Estate offers ample space for parking and picnicking, and a pavilion bar.
This hilarious play tells the story of a hungry servant who, realizing that working for two masters could ensure him more food, tries to do the job of two men while working desperately to conceal that fact from both employers. With a zany plot featuring lost love, mistaken identity, ravenous servants, and lots of letter mix-ups, Goldoni’s classic comedy is rollicking fun. Presented weekly on Tuesdays in the outdoor courtyard at Reynolds Tavern.
One of the Bard’s most beloved comedies about flirtation, friendship and mistaken identities, takes a lighthearted look at the fickle and passionate nature of love. The character Rosalind is considered one of Shakespeare’s most fully realized female characters. Director Sally Boyett sets the production in the 1930s in the Cumberland Gap region of the Appalachian mountains, with nostalgic bluegrass music performed by the cast, an ensemble of eight seasoned professional actors.
