    Frank and Teddy are trying to make their way up the Hollywood ladder in the 1930’s and have written a script that will surely launch their careers. The problem is they can’t come up with the financing for their movie. That is, until they discover a rich widow “on death’s doorstep” who wants to leave her entire estate to her twins that were kidnapped at birth. Frank and Teddy pose as the rich woman’s children… did we mention that the twins are female? Hilarity ensues as the two fake their way into the hearts of the old woman in a web of deception that could end up being more than they bargained for!

    The play has roles for 6 males and 2 women.

    Set in Tsarist Russia in 1905, the story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope with both the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one’s choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

    The original Broadway production of the show, which opened in 1964, had the first musical theatre run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. Fiddler held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years until Grease surpassed its run. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards, winning nine, including Best Musical, score, book, direction and choreography. It spawned four Broadway revivals, a successful 1971 film adaptation.

     

  • Not Waving

    by Gen LeRoy

    Directed by Ken Thompson

    May 11, 12, 13 (matinee), 18, 19, 25 & 26

    In a mental facility in New York, Gabby Stone, a quiet unassuming, guilt-wracked widow, has come to collect her daughter, Nicole, who has been institutionalized for over a year following a suicide attempt. Mother and daughter are a mismatched couple; Nicole, in a mild manic state, is witty, brilliant, artistic, passionate and wildly courageous. Gabby, sharing her worries with the audience, reads the worst into the radical notions her daughter expounds and is threatened by Nicole’s views on how Gabby’s life must change.

    Obsession is the core of Nicole’s illness and the motor that drives her: from wanting to save Gabby, to saving the world; to enjoying everything beautiful in life, to deciding that the cat she long ago relinquished to her ex-husband needs to be restored to her own safe keeping. Trying to gain order in her life, Nicole drags a reluctant Gabby through a whirlwind of adventures that include Karate lessons, demonstrations, lectures, work at a Brooklyn day care center, and finally to kidnapping Isabella, Nicole’s cat.

    While on this roller-coaster ride, Gabby begins to understand the torment her daughter has been suffering and gradually becomes an ally. They bond, but Nicole, in trying to fill the gaps in her disoriented life, is eventually overwhelmed by her illness and her thwarted plans. She heartbreakingly spirals down and once again must be institutionalized. But she has left Gabby transformed. A new woman, Gabby is focused, fearless, empowered, formidable, the kind of mother and friend Nicole will need when she once again emerges from the hell-hole of mental illness.
