Merriment, Mayhem & Murder Wig & Buckle:
2012- 2013 Season Options Wait Until Dark Curtains Stage Door Keeping It Light Drowsy Chaperone Blithe Spirit Man Who Came to Dinner Twisted Tales Into the Woods Comedy of Errors Dog Sees God Synopsis Keep In Mind! Synposis Keep In Mind! Synopsis Keep In Mind! Synopsis Keep In Mind! The story takes place in Boston in 1959, where the leading lady of a horrible western adaption of Robin Hood is murdered after curtain call on opening night. The entire company comes under suspicion, and Lt. Frank Cioffi of the Boston Police Department is called in to solve the homicide. The suspects include the producer, Carmen Bernstein; her husband, Sidney; the show's director Christopher Belling; divorced songwriting team Aaron Fox and Georgia Hendricks; stage manager Johnny Harmon; choreographer and leading man Bobby Pepper, ingénue Niki Harris, and chorus girl Bambi Bernét.While the murder is investigated, the company tries to fix all of the problems show, leading Cioffi to spend more time working on the show than solving the murder. As the members of the company are picked off one by one, Cioffi is left to save the show and solve the murders. In this thriller, blind housewife Suzy Hendrix is confronted by three con men while she’s home alone. They’re looking for a doll filled with heroin, and Suzy must figure out how to hold them off with the help of a young girl who lives above her. Suzy must trick the crooks before it’s too late, leading to a climactic scene where Suzy makes the villains as blind as she is. The play uses themes of darkness and light to create drama and depth. The Footlights Club is a boarding house for several struggling young actresses trying to break into the theater world. Actress Terry Randall must balance her career with the affections of two different men—playwright Keith Burgess, and David Kingsley, a movie producer returning to Broadway. Other women at the Footlights Club include Jean Maitland, who gets a prized film contract, Kaye Hamilton, whose struggles on the stage leads to depression and suicide, Pat Devine, a nightclub dancer, and Linda Shaw, a society girl who causes scandal after having an affair with a married man. The show portrays the battle between stage and film as the girls fight to be successful. A show within a show! The show opens in present day then goes back to a "classic" 1900s musical, told by a witty narrator (who remarks about musical cliches throughout the show). A very funny, silly musical Synopsis A seance brings back the ghost of the male lead's first wife who then attempts to ruin his second marriage. The second wife cannot see the first wife though. Synopsis A comedy in 3 Acts.
A famous radio personality comes for dinner to a small town where he breaks his hip and must remain for several weeks. While he is there he messes with the personal lives of the family he is staying with and then must fix the issues he has caused before leaving. Keep In Mind! Synopsis Synopsis Synposis Keep In Mind! Curtains: Large cast, fun! Many male characters, another dance heavy show with a pricey set.

Wait Until Dark: Large cast, female heavy cast! Two seperate sets are required.

Stage Door: One small set. Smaller set, but lots of female parts. Drowsy Chaperone: Hilarious script, large cast. Around the same time period as Anything Goes/ Chicago.

Man Who Came to Dinner: Large set. Expensive set. A fractured fairytale that follows a baker and his wife's journey "into the woods" to undo a curse cast upon them to never have a child. Familiar fairy tale characters are introduced as the two search for cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold. A Shakespeare farcical comedy tells the story of twins accidentally seperated at birth. When the two meet and encounter the other's friends and families, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, arrest, and accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession. An "unauthorized parody," the play imagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as teenagers. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual relations and identity are among the issues covered in this drama. Into the Woods: A marketable, musically challenging show with an adaptable set. W&B produced it once before.

Comedy of Errors: First Shakespearean comedy in a while for our company.
