The COMPLETE WORKS of  Wm. Shakespeare (abridged)

by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield

Directed by Jess Hicks 

Celebrate the 400th anniversery of Shakespeare’s death with a rollicking good time! This irreverent, fast-paced romp of a play, breaks the standard Shakespeare facade to make the Bard's stories come alive. All 37 plays in 97 minutes! The madcap cast of 4 women weave a wickedly funny path through the Comedies, Histories and Tragedies of the most famous writer in the English language, William T. Shake-speare (the T stands for terrific!). Come get your Shakespeare in one hilarious dose!

The Ultimate Christmas Carol

By E. Scrooge, Esq. (as told to Charles Dickens, Author) and Original Music by Douglas Orlyk 

Directed by Pat Rataj

Scrooge is breaking all of the Christmas rules and making the Cratchit Family – and jolly London - feel the burn. This hilarious, screwball musical send-up of the holiday favorite combines the heart-warming original, some modern time bends, and very original holiday songs. Add audience participation, sing-along ghostly visits, and more. Great for families.

Random Theft & Other Acts

By John David Westby

Directed by Marge Uhlarik-Boller

A fast-paced, rollicking Fargo-esque comedy about breaking the law and personal boundaries. Three over educated, under-employed suburbanites find themselves in a perfect storm of the 2008 real-estate downturn, the economic crisis, a bank robbery gone wrong, and just plain bad karma.

Don’t Drink the Water

By Woody Allen

Directed by Bernie Weiller

Watch what happens when the 1960’s and old style Communism collide somewhere across the border. This zinger-filled farce follows a nice American family, accused of spying, and trapped in a run-down U.S. Embassy in a country off the tourist map. They want to break out, the secret police want to break in, and true love wants to break hearts.  

“Time travel back to the age of Mad Men.”

RUTHLESS! (The Musical)

Music by Marvin Laird, Book and Lyrics by Joel Paley

Directed by Kevin Wiczer,  Musical Direction by Erik Scheele

What do you get when you combine the story-lines of hit Broadway musicals, like Gypsy and Mame, and movies such as The Bad Seed and All About Eve? You get a totally hilarious take on stage mothers and their beautiful - but poisonous - offspring. A campy cult favorite Ruthless! is a don't miss, 90-minute hilarious romp through the world of Broadway, child acting, parenthood, and unbridled ambition.

Rollicking, fast-moving and hilarious!”

Middle-aged siblings long to break their everyday patterns and really live, live, live! But then reality hits when their big sister threatens to sell their house and – horrors - face a future that may or may not involve work!

”When life is a performance, it’s always Oscar night." 

May 19 - June 11, 2017 


by May Hutchings Reed

Directed by Donna Steele

Fairways, a musical about honesty, love and of course, golf, had its world premiere at Steel Beam Theatre in 2006 to excellent reviews and sold out houses. This new production will feature two returning original cast members, Joe Billquist of St. Charles, and Dana Teichart of Geneva. This show is sure to be summer hit!
