MCT 2018 Season
The Fox on the Fairway
By Ken Ludwig
February 23, 24, March 2, and 3, 2018
Directed by Roy Roth
Our season opens with Ken Ludwig’s present–day homage to the tradition of the great British farces of the 1930s and ‘40s. It’s the annual inter-club golf tournament between the Quail Valley Golf and Country Club and hated rival Crouching Squirrel Golf and Racquet Club. There’s a sizeable wager on the line between the two club directors, but Crouching Squirrel has just co-opted Quail Valley’s best player. The contest plays out amidst some unexpected (and hilarious) twists and turns, including several love affairs, a lost engagement ring, a surprising identity revelation and some truly ugly sweaters.
Vanya, Sonia, Masha, and Spike
By Christopher Durang
April 27, 28, May 4, and 5, 2018
Our second production finds middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia residing in their family home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, bickering and mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. After their fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with her new young boy toy, Spike. Immediately, the family is launched into a weekend of one-upsmanship, old resentments and threats to sell the house. Also on the scene, to Sasha’s dismay, is a pretty young aspiring actress. A blend of Chekhov’s ennui with the modern-day issues of climate change, celebrity, social networking, and adding results in a thoughtful comedy. Strong language.
Buckshot and Blossoms
By Tim Kelly
September 14, 15, 21 22 and 23, 2018
Directed by Peggy Roth
Stage Management by Roy Roth
Featuring the acting talents of local area youth, our third production of the season is a rip-roaring spoof of the Old West. At the Trail Dust Hotel, the villainous Whip Lash, his partner-in-crime Pearl of Pecos and their gang of not-too-bright hooligans plot their nefarious schemes against the citizens of the town – everything from cattle rustling and loan sharking to crooked gambling. Determined to clean up the town, newspaper editor Sally Sutton calls in honest young lawman Johnny Wright, the fastest gun in the west, to be the new sheriff. Meanwhile, there’s a dispute over ownership of a copper mine, a diamond goes missing, and The Durango Kid – the meanest, nastiest hired gun in the west – is coming to town!
Murder by Natural Causes
Adapted by Tim Kelly
From the television play by Richard Levinson and William Link
November 9, 10, 16, and 17, 2018
Directed by Peter Hannen
Stage Management by Julie Hannen
The last show of the season combines laughter and thrills for a taut suspense play with an ingenious plot. Arthur Sinclair is a wealthy world-famous mentalist. His greedy wife Allison plots his murder with the aid of a struggling young actor. The murder plan is so clever it can’t fail … or can it? After all, Arthur has psychic gifts … or does he? Once the scheme is set in motion the plot twists keep coming, and nothing is as it seems. The mystery builds to an exciting climax that will have you on the edge of your seat.
