 You Can’t Take It with You

 June 17 – July 12, 2020

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

June 26 – July 26, 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

July 17 – August 9, 2020

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.

 

Menopause: The Musical

September 16 – October 4, 2020

Four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, and night sweats. This hilarious musical parody set to classic tunes from the 60’s and 70’s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles. Find out why millions of women AND MEN have been laughing at this show for 18 years.

 

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”.
