The Fourposter
by Jan de Hartog
Directed by Kathleen Milligan
Featuring Tim Reger and Michele Reger

The Fourposter features two characters, Agnes and Michael, and spans the years 1890 to 1925, as key moments in their marriage are played out around their four-poster bed. De Hartog's play charts the ups and downs of a long-lasting marriage that is punctuated by moments of crisis and reconciliation. It maintains a balance in perspective between the special concerns and complaints of the woman and those of the man, as a function of their traditional societal roles. The "four-poster" bed, in and around which these moments of crisis are played out, symbolizes the lasting quality of the marriage bond, which remains steady throughout several decades of love and conflict.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown the Musical
Based on Comic Strip “PEANUTS” by Charles M. Schulz
Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner
Directed by Daniel Mintz and Helen Bricker

Featuring Arty Richel, Izzy Howard, Daniel Mintz, David Rohrer, Erin Flynn and Kylie Davila

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

The Last of the Dragons 
by Kristin Walter
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. 
Directed by Elizabeth Dunham
Featuring Natalya Postupak, Romney Ritchie, Brett McIlwee, McKenna Rimel, Sam Post, Nyssa Prunka and Tori Prunka

In the kingdom of Middlefield, there is a tradition. On a princess' sixteenth birthday, she is tied to a rock, kidnapped by a dragon, rescued by a prince and lives happily ever after. But what happens when the prince is too afraid to fight, the princess wants to do the rescuing by herself, and the dragon is nowhere to be found? Adapted from the story by Edith Nesbit, The Last of the Dragons tells a tale of bravery, intelligence and unexpected friendship.

"Ms. Walter's script adheres closely to Ms. Nesbit's story while injecting some contemporary humor." - The New York Times

"Cute, funny dialogue" - Off-Off Broadway Review

 The Last of the Dragons was originally produced in 2006 by the celebrated and critically-acclaimed Manhattan Children's Theatre.
