In community theatre, it's all about the drama.

It’s May 1973 when a young man wanders into a dilapidated community theater in Reading, PA. The company members welcome him with open arms, perhaps only because they need a set painter! He then proceeds to soak up all the idealism and craziness that comes with being part of a struggling theater company with big dreams. A comedy, written by Douglas Carter Beane, who is known for The Nance, Sister Act, The Little Dog Laughed, As Bees In Honey Drown, and many others. According to the playwright, "This story isn’t the truth. It’s the only way I know how to tell the truth, which is through fiction.”

This show may not be suitable for children under 12.
