The Miracle Worker

By William Gibson

Directed by Sondra Learn
Produced by Chuck Learn

Who can forget the huge way we were involved as audiences in the 1960s story of Annie Sullivan and the child Helen Keller, together forging an inspiring story of trial and success in 19th century America. A Burlington production with area talent is long overdue, and audiences will be fully rewarded by this immensely challenging play. A must see for the season, to be sure!

Production Dates: April 15-16, 21-23, 28-30 2011

Chapter Two

By Neil Simon

Directed by Tom Mackan
Produced by Jan & John Durbin

When Neil Simon writes about a guy trying to help another guy solve a romantic crisis we’re sure to be in for a couple of hours of huge laughs. Simon knows his marital and romantic roadmaps and never misses the right twist or turn to keep us completely involved and always en route to hilarity. This play is one of his best.

George, a recent widower and a writer, can’t get out of his depression. Bring on his younger brother Leo with plans to get him dating again. Predictably there is a series of bad matches and the fun begins. But Leo comes up with Jennie who looks like a keeper, and this pair of not so young lovers set out on a bumpy road to happiness-ever-after, but not without the comedy that Simon can so dependably provide. Laugh after laugh will keep us rolling along. Add a neurotic friend of Jenny to mix it up with Leo and the merriment is irrepressible.

“A sure smash!”
– Variety

“Lovely, whimsical, and touching and always funny .. most of the time downright hilarious.”
– New York Post

The Subject was Roses

By Frank D. Gilroy

Directed by Dia Frid
Produced by Michelle Spanik

1964 Pulitzer Prize Play and winner of two Tony Awards, the play is still a persuasive story of a small family after WW2. John and Nettie come to terms with their returning son, whose values and life style are at odds with the familiar ways of their pre-war days. In scenes tender and moving, witty and funny, sharp and incisive, this small and nuclear family seeks to come together in a changing America. Neither sad nor tragic, this is just a wonderfully written story of life and getting along.

Production Dates: September 17-18, 23-25, 30 October 1-2 2010
