    John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980 in front of his home, the Dakota. The following day, New Yorkers gathered in spontaneous vigils to mourn and pay tribute.

0809-JennysHouseOfJoyby Norm Foster - Comedy
May 1, 2, 7, 8, 9*, 14, 15, 16*, 2009

Jenny's House of Joy, one of the latest from Hamilton area's own Norm Foster, this theatrical offering is a four-alarm hit. Labeled a "sassy treat" by the Spec's Gary Smith, it is funny, touching and ripe with enough comic surprises to keep you engaged to the very end. We are treated to a birds-eye view of life in a small western town. The heart of all "polite" society is laid bare as the women in Jenny's "House" reveal their clients' best wishes ...and some of their own!

0809-ADelicateBalanceby Edward Albee - Drama
February 6, 7, 12, 13, 14*, 19, 20, 21*, 2009

Albee's play is a study of love and the social contract taken to its "logical conclusion." Push comes to shove for Agnes and Tobias, suffering successive invasions of their home by Agnes' sister (a vocal drunk), their 31 year old daughter (her fourth failed marriage), and then by their best friends Edna and Harry (fleeing the "terror" in their home). Is there a delicate balance in Agnes and Tobias' home? Perhaps...not?

This classic and hilarious play is set in the small town of Mesalia, Ohio, in the weeks leading up to Christmas in the 1930s.

Before Whiteside even enters the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the front door and injures his hip. He is attended by Dr. Radley, the absent-minded town physician and Miss Preen, his frantic nurse. Where does it go from there? Come and see!
