Join us for our unforgettable 2020 Season!

Our 2020 season focuses on the indomitable spirit of community, telling stories that celebrate people coming together to not just survive, but thrive, in the face of adversity. 

The women of Truvy’s salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana must rely on each others’ strength and humor to weather the storm in Robert Harling’s classic play, Steel Magnolias. In the musical The Spitfire Grill, the people of declining Gilead, Wisconsin rally around a newcomer’s plan to save the beating heart of the town – its local diner. A community of unemployed steelworkers come together to put on a strip show to make some quick cash, but along the way shed their fears, self-consciousness, and old definitions of masculinity – along with their clothes – in the musical hit, The Full Monty. A small community rocked by murder looks for help from famed investigator Hercule Poirot, only to suffer a second murder not long after his arrival in Poirot: Murder on the Links. And in the classic holiday musical White Christmas, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis rally new friends and their tight-knit military family to save their old general’s failing country inn.

We’re proud to be a part of our own resilient community and look forward to sharing these inspiring, life-affirming stories with you in our bigger-than-ever 35th season!

Our 2020 Season Shows:

Steel Magnolias

January 30th – March 22nd. 2020

Steel Magnolias is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” go to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken and wise cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M’Lynn whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry. The excitement of the wedding quickly turns to concern as Shelby faces a risky pregnancy and a myriad of health complications. As the women of Chinquapin make their way over life’s many hurdles, they find comfort (and a fair amount of verbal ribbing) in each other.

The Spitfire Grill

April 2nd – June 7th, 2020

This will be a brand new, Oregon Cabaret take on the hit musical, with the cast playing their own instruments as an onstage orchestra! Percy, a parolee just released from prison, arrives in a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill, the only eatery in a struggling town. It is for sale but there are no takers, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. A heartfelt musical about healing the wounds of the past and finding your chosen family. 

The Full Monty

June 18th – September 6th, 2020

While spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo, see how much the women enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work, and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash – a strip show of their own. Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, a ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show.

 

Poirot: Murder on the Links

September 17th – November 8th, 2020

Based on Agatha Christie’s thrilling mystery, Murder on the Links features famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and his friend Captain Hastings. Poirot arrives in France to find his client brutally murdered and lying face down in a shallow grave on a golf course. But why is the dead man wearing an overcoat that is too big for him? And for whom was the impassioned love letter in the pocket? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse.

 

White Christmas

November 19th – December 31st, 2020

Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former Army commander, who is in desperate need of help with his struggling lodge. The dazzling score features well known Irving Berlin standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas.
