Kindergarten takes a funny, insightful and heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life. The many delightful stories feature colorful characters such as: a shy little boy who insists on playing the "pig" in his class production of Cinderella and steals the show; a man whose dream of flying carries him 11,000 feet over Los Angeles...in an aluminum lawn chair lifted by 45 helium-filled surplus weather balloons; a "mother of the bride" who brilliantly orchestrates the perfect wedding until the bowling ball of fate rolls down the aisle; and a modern-day Greek philosopher who finds the meaning of life in a piece of broken mirror from World War II. These stories are about all of us and celebrate our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age.

 

Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.

This hilarious and topical farce is sure to leave audiences squealing with laughter as one comedic gag falls atop the other at breakneck speed! When a mild-mannered young man checks into an expensive suite in New York City's finest hotel. Little does he know that his this will precipitate a fantastic nightmare involving not only his abrasive wife, but a renowned author, a middle-eastern terrorist, a scheming bellboy, an incompetent CIA agent, a sex-starved maid, a ditzy secretary, and a little girl in pig-tails. Naturally, with this crazy cast of characters, things quickly spin out of control and into a delightfully absurd evening of pure comedic gold! Don’t miss your chance to see “What the Bellhop Saw”!

The Fairy Godmother is busy tutoring an apprentice but makes time for our heroine. A touch of incredible magic sends Cinderella off to the palace ball. Alas she loses her glass slipper as she tries to escape before midnight arrives. The prince vows to marry the girl whose foot fits the slipper. The ladies of the kingdom attempt to squeeze into the tiny shoe. Cleopatra can only manage one big toe! Naturally, by the final curtain , Cinderella and the prince ore reunited and the stepsisters get an unexpected comeuppance.

Get on the wagon rollin' West with this rip-roarin' tall tale. It's the saga of Pecos Bill, who was raised by coyotes, and Slue-Foot Sue, who likes to ride down the Rio Grande River on a catfish. They come to the dusty town of Prairie Dog to aid Granny, who is being threatened by Dirty Dan and his gang, bandits who quiver and shake whenever there's mention of soap and water. They hatch a plan to do Granny out of an unexpected fortune in gold. All manner of wild complications follow, ending up with the gang forced to bathe and attend classes in the local schoolhouse. The dialogue is loaded with laughs, the stage action uproarious and the townspeople of Prairie Dog are fun to play. But above all else is the legend of Pecos Bill and Slue-Foot Sue, two young people whom most folks just naturally think are a "mite peculiar

The play includes a thunderstorm, a windswept country house, a family of failures and an invited guest – all prime ingredients for a murder mystery thriller in the traditional sense, but with a few surprises thrown in by noted British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. The cast includes many veterans of the PLMST stage, Dorinda Norrell, Ken Barnes, David Griffin, Jamie Grasse, Kyle Boyd-Robertson, and Kayla Boyd-Robertson. The play has three alternate endings, so you’ll want to plan on seeing this show more than once. Showdates are November 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20. Friday and Saturdays oen at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. The show is being directed by Jody Weaver and Steve Bales. For more information, you may email plmstheatre@yahoo.com or phone 361-649-6116.
