Neil Simon

It is a tenth anniversary dinner party with four couples.  Sounds innocent enough, but before the evening is over there are gunshots, car crashes, missing domestics, policemen, flirtations, back spasms, magic crystals, and dozen of accusations, denials, half-truths, cover-ups, and rumors to sort out.  You will laugh until it hurts and may wonder what incriminating evidence your friends have on you.

June 29th - July 29th
By Larrry L. King & Peter Masterson Music & Lyrics by Carol Hall

This lively, funny musical is the most requested by Maples Rep patrons and we are happy to present Cheyenne Nelson(seen on the Maples Rep stage as Patsy Cline, Sister Mary Hubert and half-a-dozen other roles) as Miss Mona.  The score includes "The Sidestep," "Twenty-four Hours of Loving," and "Hard Candy Christmas."  Our talented cast will delight you with singing, dancing, and a little hanky-panky, but "there is nothing dirty going on!"

July 20th - August 5th
By Roger Bean

It is Prom Night, 1958 and four best friends who are also the trophy winning varsity song leaders for Springfield High take the stage to perform the hits of the day. They sing "Mr. Sandman," "Lollipop," "Stupid Cupid," "Dream Lover," and "Goodnight Sweetheart" and let us in on the ambitions, heartbreaks, and intrigues of a high school girl in the fifties.  Act Two takes place in 1968 at their High School Reunion when a lot has happened to the Wonderettes and popular music.  Now it is "Heatwave," "Its in His Kiss," "Secret Love," "Leader of the Pack," and "Its My Party" providing the musical backdrop for the comedy and drama of life in the sixties.  Rated G
