The pump boys sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the dinettes, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off Broadway. They perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils. "A gasser ... with buoyant, earthy humor" says the N.Y. Daily News. March 5-6, & 12-14.

The story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller, The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Helen, trapped in her secret world, is violent, spoiled, and treated by her family as sub-human. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. Following scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single word: "water". April 23-24 & 30, May 1-2.
School shows May 3.

Based on the Mel Brooks movie of the same name, this mad-cap romp of hilarity follows theatrical producer Max Bialystock and his accountant/partner Leo Bloom in their get rich quick scheme to oversell a Broadway flop. Complications arise however when their “flop” becomes a hit, despite having the worst show ever written. With ridiculous accent, amusing parodies and caricatures, and irreverent poking at the business of show business, The Producers has been a hit movie, had successful runs on Broadway and the West End, and international acclaim. July 9-10 & 16-18.

“Froggy" LeSeuer visits a rural Georgia camp and brings Charlie, a shy young man with him. He tells everyone that Charlie is from a foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister minister; that the minister's fiancée is pregnant; and other revelations made thinking that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. What he does fuels nonstop hilarity and sets up the climax in which things awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant. August 13-14 & 20-22.

Here is all the charm of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, the children Wendy, Michael and John, pirates and Indians, embellished with show-stopping songs, "Never Never Land", "I Won't Grow Up" and "I'm Flying". This is one of the world's most celebrated musicals. First produced on Broadway with Mary Martin and Cyril Richard and more recently a major hit starring Cathy Rigby, Peter Pan will steal your hearts and breath. September 24-26 & 30, October 1-2.  The FCOA 2010 Applefest® show!
