The Mousetrap
July 31-August 2

Written by Agathie Christie, The Moustrap is the world's longest running play, now celebrating its 60th year. It tells the story of a group of strangers that are stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. How to solve this mystery? Everyone's background is probed, a lot of skeletons are rattled. Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.

Leading Ladies
August 7-9, 14-16

Leading Ladies, the hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, finds two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, so down on their luck that they resort to performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an elderly lady in nearby York is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives to get the cash. Romantic entanglements abound and … well the story is so complicated that you will just have to come to see this enjoyable play to understand it. Be prepared to laugh!

Hospitality Suite
August 21-23

In a small hotel room high above Wichita, Kansas, conflicting notions of character, salesmanship, honesty, religion, and love simmer until they boil over as two experienced salesmen and a young research engineer await a CEO whose visit to their modest Hospitality Suite could save their company from ruin.
