UPCOMING 2016-2017 PLAYS  
MAIN STAGE 2/24/2017 to 3/12/2017
Three successful and happily unmarried villains get a surprise inheritance of a little girl. Forced to do the right thing and take care of the baby the three hopeless and hapless babysitters make an attempt until their pasts finally catch up with them. You will think you have it all figured out until a plot twist changes everything in this Family Friendly Musical Melodrama! Songs, gunfights, villains, foam rocks and cue cards fill this old west melodrama that is based loosely on a story from San Juan Capistrano's colorful history and one of the largest manhunts in the Wild West. Family Friendly Fun!

Performed here first in San Juan Capistrano!

STAGE II 3/10/2017 to 3/26/2017
Based on a remarkable a true story, this inspiring and unforgettable play is an American classic and tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.

WINNER - 1960 TONY AWARD - Best Play


"Interesting, absorbing and moving."
— The New York Post

"Radiant, emotion-charged, memorable, superb!"
— The Philadelphia Inquirer

Gibson's play is one of those great examples of a drama that takes real American life stories and turns them into enduring art; in that sense, it is comparable to such great works as "The Crucible," by Arthur Miller

MAIN STAGE 3/31/2017 to 4/16/2017
This is the love story of Ethel and the curmudgeonly Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond, Maine for the forty-eighth year.

It is a touching, funny, and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years.


"ON GOLDEN POND is a work of rare simplicity and beauty, and in Thompson our theatre has found a fresh new voice."
— NY Daily News

"... a rare and memorable theatrical experience ..."
— Variety

"What courage it must have taken for Mr. Thompson in the 1970s to write a play with so much affection in it!"
— The New Yorker

MAIN STAGE 5/5/2017 to 5/21/2017
A happy go lucky view of small town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850's as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona's cozy bordello until that puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution. This boot-stomping portrait of small-town vice is uplifting and hilarious.


"Utterly charming, lively and genial."
— The New York Daily News

"A font of fun and friendliness, engagingly rich in regional nostalgia and spiced with delicate bawdry. The country and western score is a delight."
— Time

"Humorous and good natured."
— New York Post
