54th Season Signature Season productions:
Dearly Departed, September 7-17, 2017
by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones
A group of colorful and dysfunctional Southern eccentrics gathers below the Mason-Dixon line. When the patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan…including trying to convince his wife not to put “mean and surly” on his tombstone. Last produced by MHT in 1997, Dearly Departed is one of the top comedies listed in audience surveys.
Ripcord, November 9-19, 2017
by David Lindsay-Abaire
A brand new play on the MHT stage. In the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, the cantankerous Abby has to share her quarters with the infuriatingly chipper new-arrival, Marilyn. A feud between the two women results in a bet to determine who stays and who goes, quickly escalating into an outrageous game of one-upsmanship. A comedy that also includes moving moments about love and forgiveness.
The Mountaintop, January 11-21, 2018
By Katori Hall
Another new play on the MHT stage. A gripping reimagination of events the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On April 3, 1968, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives, he doesn’t know if she is an FBI informant, the devil, or an angel. Dr. King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people. *This play contains strong language. Parental discretion is advised.*
Barefoot in the Park, April 19-29, 2018
By Neil Simon
Last produced by MHT in 1983, this play is the story of Paul and Corie Bratter, newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their older eccentric neighbor. Everything that can go wrong, does!
Sister Act, May 31-June 16, 2018
By Alan Menken
A new musical presented for the first time on the MHT stage. Featuring original music by a Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, it is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet. A nightclub singer hopeful is also the girlfriend of a mobster. After witnessing a murder, she hides out in a convent and turns everything upside down. This uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
