Lunch at the Piccadilly
February 17-26

Lunch at the Piccadilly is a new musical comedy written by two noted North Carolinians, best-selling author Clyde Edgerton and composer Mike Craver. With 20 great songs, this funny and heartwarming show opens on the rocking porch of the Rosehaven Convalescence Center. Unable to keep up with the times, Rosehaven is being sold to Ballard College. Nothing is supposed to change, but the residents have already noticed a difference in the cornbread. It’s not looking good. Enter Lil Olive, a new resident, who brings new life to the porch – and a revolutionary new idea to get the residents out of their rockers. The quirky, indomitable senior citizens find  surprising solutions  in this unpredictable new show that will tickle your funny bone and warm your heart. DIRECTOR-PAT SHULL & BEVERLY HENDERSON    


Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell
April 14-23

Based on actual events from the spring of 1939 when the movie public is anxiously awaiting the release of Gone with the Wind, producer David O. Selznick realizes the script is a dud. He calls on screenwriter Ben Hecht to save the day but, unfortunately, Hecht never read the book. With only a week before filming resumes, Selznick locks himself in his office with Hecht and Director Victor Fleming to re-write the script.

DIRECTOR-STUART ADAMO & PAUL HYDE


The Boys Next Door

DIRECTOR-MARY NICKLES
