Welcome! and thank you for joining us for our 67th season of continuous operation, and what a season it is! Back at Allenberry after over 30 years we open with a true modern classic, Neil Simon's charming trilogy of one act plays, Plaza Suite. Next we are going back to the Mod Era and 1960s London with Shout! The Mod Musical - so many hits you'll run out of fingers to count them on! After that, a great musical comedy for everyone, Damn Yankees. See what happens when a senior baseball super fan trades his soul for one last chance at the pennant. Then what is summertime at Allenberry without Rodgers and Hammerstein? We will bring you the most moving show in their canon, South Pacific! Whether you are a long time theatregoer or a first-timer, it's the perfect show! Next, try and re-member a kind of September as we present a fun take on New York's longest running off-Broadway hit, The Fantasticks. Then back by popular demand the mystery thriller Sleuth returns. And lastly on to a fall of traditional Allenberry favorites: our famous Murder Mystery Weekend, this year An Unconventional Murder, and our original Christmas show, There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays.
We are so glad you are here and spending your time with us. This is a big season of change at Allenberry. After a 10 year absence, and in a new attempt to bring you the highest level of quality, we have reformed our rela-tionship with Actor's Equity Association. Actor's Equity is the union for professional actors and stage managers. You should see some old friends returning to us this year - we couldn't be more thrilled!
Please help us spread the joy of professional, live theatre - right in your own back yard - by telling your friends and neighbors what we have to offer.
We know your time is precious and your money is hard earned; your choosing to support Allenberry is a gift we treasure.
We hope to see you many times this year and thank you for your support!.
Ryan B. Gibbs
