ALL MY SONS
Aug 29 - Sep 21 at East Sonora
Winner of the Drama Critics' Award for Best New Play in 1947 and multiple Tony Award-winner, All My Sons established Arthur Miller as a leading voice in the American theatre. All My Sons introduced themes that thread through Miller's work as a whole: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. In this classic American drama, Joe Keller and Steve Deever-partners in a manufacturing plant during World War II-turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. They were sent to prison but Keller was exonerated and went on to have a successful business. In a work of tremendous power, a love affair between Keller's son and Deever's daughter, the bitterness of George Deever, and the reaction of a son to his father's guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity. "...the quality of its writing hasn't tarnished, its moral issues haven't aged, and its tragic events can still pack a wallop." Los Angeles Times (Rated PG-13)

MARK TWAIN'S A MURDER, A MYSTERY & A MARRIAGE
Sep 26 - Oct 26 at Fallon House
Heroes! Heroines! Villains! Great tunes, goofy jokes, some hot fiddlin', and a whole lot of singin' and dancin'. The zany small town of Deer Lick, Missouri is thrown into frenzy when a mysterious visitor arrives. A young romance is put to the test and a town patriarch is murdered. Was it the local store clerk with a vendetta or the suave Frenchman? Small town antics, homespun humor and Bluegrass melodies build to an adventure of clues. Will Mary marry the wrong guy? Or will love and truth save the day? Only the wit, wisdom and satirical humor of Mark Twain could answer these questions. "Captures the spirit... of Twain's lively essence." -- New York Times "...a high-spirited evening for the entire family...a bouncy bluegrass score." -Talkin' Broadway (Rated PG)

You'll have the time of your life!" --Wall Street Journal (Rated PG-13)

It's Christmas Eve in 1941. The Depression is coming to a close, but 18 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the threat of war has just begun. The Sanctified Sanders Family Singers are heading up the annual Christmas celebration at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, but they are about to say a bittersweet goodbye to their only son, who is shipping out with the Marine Corps. Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe (who works part-time at the local pickle plant) and the Sanders family attempt to raise the spirits of their faithful flock (the audience!) in a rousing, hilarious and heart-warming Christmas gospel sing-along of cherished holiday hymns and carols. There's Uncle Stanley; the family's patriarch, Burl, and his Scripture-quoting wife, Vera; the twins Dennis and Denise and their sister June (she doesn't sing, she signs). "...one of the best Christmas shows that I have ever seen... an inspiring musical that is as smart as it is heartwarming". - Chicago Theatre Beat (Rated G)
