2021    MAIN STAGE SEASON

Pamela Parker's               Second Samuel   Directed by Len Willis

Second Samuel is a poignant comedy/drama about family and diversity. It’s a simpler time in the late 1940s, especially in South Georgia and specifically in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. What had been called the Great Depression is quickly fading into memory. The war has been won, the election is now over, and "Give 'em Hell Harry" is still president. It’s been an exciting time for sure, but the folks in Second Samuel are ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this is the summer Miss Gertrude passes away, and deep dark secrets are about to be revealed. Nobody could have imaged how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if anything would ever be normal again!

Michael McKeever's     Suite Surrender          Directed by Dennis Loy

Suite Surrender is an all-out love note to those wonderful farces of the 30's and 40's. It's 1942, and the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood's biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered little lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy. You’ll laugh until you cry! And then laugh all the way home!

A Trip to Bountiful tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman who longs to return to her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one last time. Carrie’s controlling son, Ludie, and demanding daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, forbid her to leave. However, while her son and daughter-in-law are gone for the day, Carrie flees to the bus station where she meets a young woman named Thelma. Together, the new friends travel toward Bountiful together, but when Carrie arrives in nearby Harrison, Texas, she discovers her beloved town isn’t the same as she remembered it.

In Undercover Christmas, Doc Nash had a successful medical career in the big city, but after losing his wife a few years ago, he decided to return to his childhood home in Baynesville, Virginia, where he set up a clinic offering free medical care for the town’s residents.  The clinic is a vital part of the community; however, with recent cuts in funding and a dip in the economy, the clinic is struggling financially. With a stack of unpaid bills and no money in the bank, the future of this little clinic remains uncertain. But God has other plans in the works as a homeless patient changes the clinic forever.
