The Youth Theatre Workshop will take place June 16-29th. The Shakespeared! production for this summer is A Comedy of Errors.

The July production will be the suspense thriller Angel Street, also known as Gaslight. The play by Patrick Hamilton was first produced in London in 1938, and then in 1941 it was produced on Broadway, where it became one of New York's longest running plays. In New York, the stars were Vincent Price, Judith Evelyn, and Leo G. Carroll. A film version of the play titled "Gaslight" starred Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. Bergman won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the wife being driven mad by her husband. Angel Street will be presented on July 11, 12, 13, and July 17, 18, 19, 20.

Our season will close with a production of Mary Chase's classic comedy Harvey. Recently revived on Broadway, and familiar to our audiences, the play tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd and his closest friend, who just happens to be a six foot tall rabbit named Harvey. Only Dowd can see Harvey, and the situations with his family and friends present a merry evening of entertainment. Harvey will close our season with shows on September 12, 13, 14, and September 18, 19, 20, 21.
