Set in the 1950’s, four sisters from Muncie, Idaho, Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl & Donna, are making their national television singing debut for “Spotlight on Music,” in hopes of being discovered by Ed Sullivan. The Taffetas pay tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontaine Sisters & The Chordettes. It’s an hour and a half of nostalgic music from the Fifties; remembering what Sunday night television was like on your 12” black & white screen.
A Comedy with Murder
by Rob Urbinati
Laura Blum, Director
Tracette Hillman, Assistant Director
February 3 – 18
Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time, Noel Coward and Agatha Christie. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel arrive unexpectedly along with guests not far behind; a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer . Each carries a long held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
