For 2012 our productions include the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical set in 1938 Austria, the adventures of Alice in an updated Disney favorite, a dramatization of infamous witch trials in puritanical Massachusetts, spirited mayhem by the determined ghost of a first wife, and a heart warming Capra classic.  This is a season you won’t want to miss!

Hoping to collect material for his next book, socialite and novelist Charles Condomine invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant Arcati to his house to conduct a séance. The scheme backfires when, following the séance, Charles is haunted by the ghost of his first wife, Elvira. Spirited comedy ensues as Elvira attempts to disrupt Charles’s marriage to Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost. A real charmer and a perfect lead into the Halloween season!

One fateful Christmas Eve, after his family’s savings and loan company fails, George thinks everyone would be better off if he’d never been born. The wingless angel Clarence will earn his wings if he can convince George that his family, friends and neighbors need and love George more than he ever imagined. A holiday favorite!
