This hilarious musical confirms that retirement is grand! The vaudeville-esque show celebrates the joys and demands of being in the post-employment set.

A Comedy by Michael Parker & Susan Parker

October 11 to 27, 2019


Take a trip to the Lovers’ Landing Beach Hotel, a cozy little place that is “The Home of Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses.” Legend has it that no one can resist its romantic mystique. That legend is put to the test when the blue-blooded Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe and her daughter visit to plan the daughter’s wedding. Beatrice immediately begins a campaign to talk her daughter, not only out of the Lovers’ Landing, but also the marriage itself. A bit of illegal gambling, a little rum running and some mistaken identities provide a comical beach adventure.


Early Bird Special Dates: October 11 and 12

A Comedy by Phil Olson

December 6 to 22, 2019


It’s Christmas Eve, and a reporter on the brink of being fired has been assigned a story about a typical family Christmas – his family’s Christmas. He goes home to his widowed mother, crazy uncle, eccentric grandmother, battling siblings and their neurotic spouses—no shortage of material. But when they learn that he’s writing an article about them, the fruitcake hits the fan. Will the magic of Christmas bring this family back together?


Early Bird Special Dates: December 6 and 7
