Duck Hunter Shoots Angel at Walhalla Civic Auditorium @ Walhalla Civic Auditorium
Aug 19 @ 7:30 pm

Duck Hunter Shoots Angel is the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in the murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it-until feathers, wings and a tiara are discovered along the way. The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and the cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, DHSA has been halted by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson.

The Producers

August 18 – September 10, 2017
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan; Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Based on the 1968 Film
Directed by Jerry Crouch
The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime For Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.

‘Happy Days’ Are Here Again at the Foothills Playhouse @ Foothills Playhouse
Aug 20 @ 3:00 pm

Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable “king of cool” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures television series, Happy Days, A New Musical reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams — yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too — to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hangout, Arnold’s, is in danger of demolition. So the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a TV-worthy wrestling match. Even Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie’s childhood sweetheart, returns to help and — lo and behold! — they rekindle their old flame.

Happy Days, A New Musical, with amazing music from Oscar-winner Paul Williams and a book by the TV series original creator Garry Marshall, is perfect for regional theatres to perform. High schools can also perform the show with any number of cast members they wish. This show is so versatile it can be done with a full orchestra or just a piano! Return to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin’ fun. This perfectly family friendly musical will have you rockin’ and rollin’ all week long!
