A Butcher, A Baker, An Amish Homemaker

August 12 – 15

Jimmy Marley and Johnny Farley discover they have been rented the same room in a boarding house by their Amish landlady. As the men learn that they have a lot in common, more questions arise that their landlady may or may not be willing to answer. With acerbic wit and slapstick humor, A BUTCHER, A BAKER, AN AMISH HOMEMAKER is a delightful romp full of confused identities and delicious breakfast food. Come enjoy this World premiere of a brand new musical comedy adapted from a French farce as a special one weekend only engagement at Maples Repertory Theatre.

The Church Basement Ladies in You Smell Barn

September 29 – October 17

The ladies of the East Cornucopia Lutheran Church are famous for keeping the church running and meeting every hilarious challenge head on. This new musical follows them home to see how chores family life test their mettle. It’s nothing a hotdish can’t cure.



October 27 – November 7

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 & private – quickly got them out. That is until enthusiastic, optimistic Marilyn arrives. Soon Abby realizes that unseating Marilyn is going to take something special. A 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.
