The second show of our 88th season is a farce called Sex Please We're Sixty! Set in a quiet bed & breakfast, two men and four women combine for a wild night of mayhem centered around some little blue pills. Will you join us -- PLEASE?
Rounding out our season will be the SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS musical adventure Mary Poppins. Based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film, this highly entertaining show is one you won't want to miss. Trust us -- you won't need a spoonful of sugar to enjoy this one.
