2021 Season

Our Town

by Thornton Wilder

A poignant and beautiful portrait of small-town life in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, written by three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author Thornton Wilder. A beloved American Classic, first produced in 1938, the play spans the years 1901 – 1913. The simplicity of the play belies its powerful message about living in the moment and finding value in the smallest events of our daily lives. In today’s world of cellphones, social media, and YouTube, it is almost more relevant now than when it was written. You will be transported!

Dates: Aug. 19th – Aug. 29th
Venue: Maumee Indoor Theatre

Glorious!

by Peter Quilter

This play is a sparkling comedy based on the true story of the astronomical success of the worst singer in the world. In New York in the 1940s, the performer whom everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as ‘the first lady of the sliding scale’, she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, comfortably surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was.

Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in a hilarious and heart-warming comedy.

Dates: Sept 23rd – Oct 3rd
Venue: Maumee Indoor Theatre
