 You Can’t Take It with You

-Postponed to 2021-

A classic comedy by Kaufman and Hart about a man from a family of rich snobs who becomes engaged to a woman from a good-natured but decidedly eccentric family. A heartwarming and hilarious reminder of beauty all around us.

 

Greater Tuna

NEW DATES

July 7th – August 2nd, 2020

Two men play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages who live in the second smallest town in Texas. It’s an affectionate comment on small-town life and attitudes. Two of Maples Rep’s favorite comedic actors, Michael McIntire and Sean Riley, are slated to star.

 

Phantom of the Country Opera

-Postponed to 2021-

This hilarious country and western send-up of The Phantom of the Opera takes place backstage at the Country Palace in Nashville, Tennessee where former operate ingénue Christina Joseph (now Chrissy Jo) gets a job singing back up to the reigning “Queen of Country Music”. Great music, funny characters and a falling chandelier.

 

The Bikinis: A New Musical Beach Party

September 16 – October 4, 2020

After a 20-year hiatus, everybody’s favorite 60’s girl group will reunite for a one night only concert on the Jersey Shore. Join The Bikinis as they take a groovin’ and rockin’ trip down memory lane in this non-stop party. This show is guaranteed to have you out of your seat and dancing to hits like “It’s In His Kiss”, “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”, “Heat Wave”, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’”, “Incense and Peppermints”, When Will I Be Loved”, “I’m Every Woman”, “I Will Survive”, “It’s Raining Men”, and more!

 

Ripcord

October 14- October 25, 2020

Abby has always had a quiet room to herself at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. If a new roommate was assigned to the second bed, Abby – cantankerous and private – quickly got them out. That is until enthusiastic, optimistic Marilyn arrives. Soon Abby realizes that unseating Marilyn is going to take something special. The high-stakes bet that the two women make leads quickly to an all-out war of comic proportions. Ripcord is an often slapstick, always surprising comedy about enemies who may or may not become friends.

 

I Love a Piano

November 27 – December 13, 2020

This celebration of music and lyrics of Irving Berlin follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life as the cast sings and dances over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs including “Blue Skies”, “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, “Always”, “White Christmas”, and, of course, “I Love a Piano”.
