Hosted productions from outside theatre companies are often added in between.

Things My Mother Taught Me E-mail
Past Productions

The Abbey Players Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for the upcoming Fall production of Things My Mother Taught Me by Katherine DeSavino. 

The cast consists of three newcomers to the Abbey Players stage:  Ryan Broussard will play  Gabe with Leigh Lupton and Lisa Harris as his parents, Wyatt and Lydia.  Gale Luquette and Rebecca Songne LeBlanc will play the roles of Carter and Karen, Olivia’s parents;  Lindsay LeBlanc will play Olivia.   And Linda LeBlanc will play the role of the quirky building superintendant, Max.


This comedy introduces us to Olivia and Gabe who are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day doesn't go exactly as planned though and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up to help! This brand new comedy takes a generational look at relationships and explores how sometimes parents unintentionally pass their best lessons on to their children.  This funny and touching show will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

The production opens on November 1, 2013 and will run weekends through Nov 23rd   with matinees on Nov 10th  and 17th at the Abbey Players Theatre. Evening performances will be at 7:30 pm and the matinees will be at 2pm. The play is directed by Shana Ledet Qualls who has directed several Abbey Players productions in the past, including A Christmas Carol, The Gingerbread Lady and Jekyll & Hyde. 

Tickets for the productions will go on sale October 10th and can be purchased either through our Web site or by calling the Abbey Players Theatre at 337-893-2442.
