A Comedy Thriller by Rick Johnston

A simple dinner party? Not a chance. Al and Lois meet at Ken and Jan's for dinner before a block party where Al is to give a talk on street crime in New York. The men get into an argument which, ironically, leads to Al's violent demise. Each of the survivors frantically tries to come up with ideas on what to do with the body. Panic combined with blackmail equals one funny farce. This play contains mature themes and belly laughs.

SHOW DATES: October 3,4,10, & 11 at 8p.m.

The Nerd

A Comedy by Larry Shue

Willum Cubbert owes his life, literally, to a man he has never met - Rick Steadman, who saved him while they were soldiers in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up at his apartment during his birthday party. But the evening soon goes hilariously wrong when Willum realizes that Rick is a tactless, clueless oaf who sets off one uproarious incident after another. The laughs build to a surprise ending you'll love. This well- known comedy is a community theatre staple loved all over the country.
