FRINGE EVENT:

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)

by John K. Alvarez, Michael Carleton and James FitzGerald
with original music by Will Knapp
Directed by Bradley Gilmore
December 9-11, 2021 at the Black Box at Flashback Theater

Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told – plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. A madcap romp through the holiday season!

MAINSTAGE SERIES:

The Mousetrap

by Agatha Christie
Directed by Jade Ellis
February 10-13 & 18-20, 2022 at the Black Box at Flashback Theater

After a local woman is murdered, the guests and staff at Monkswell Manor find themselves stranded during a snowstorm. It soon becomes clear that the killer is among them, and the seven strangers grow increasingly suspicious of one another. A police detective, arriving on skis, interrogates the suspects: the newlyweds running the house; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major; a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. When a second murder takes place, tensions and fears escalate. This record-breaking murder mystery features a brilliant surprise finish from Dame Agatha Christie, the foremost mystery writer of her time. 

Mary: Her Story

Book and Lyrics by Amber Frangos, Music and Lyrics by Maria McNeil
Directed by Amber Frangos
May 12-14 & 19-22, 2022, Location TBD

A minor character with a major role in the Christian story takes the lead in this original musical work. Mary’s very human story reveals the conflicts we all face when we question faith, love, and sacrifice. This world premiere will be presented by Flashback Theater and follows three years of dedicated workshop development and support. 

The American Parade

Inspired by Moliere’s “The Misanthrope”, Written by Steve Cleberg
Directed by Sommer Schoch
July 21-22 & 29-31, 2022 at Joe Ford Amphitheatre in Rocky Hollow Park

The American Parade is a comedy of manners set in New York City in 1918 during the Spanish Influenza when tensions between society and political ideologies reached a boiling point. It follows a group of theatre people who get caught up in a scandal swirling around a controversial painting by an artist who has just returned from the war. The play employs multiple levels of theatrical illusion to explore the roles that members of our society portray.
