Lucille Fletcher's suspenseful thriller was hailed as "a first-class example of its genre" by The New York Times during its acclaimed Broadway run. Elaine Wheeler's an insomniac heiress who thinks she witnesses a murder being committed in the apartment building next door. When the police investigate, they don't find anything (or anyone) but an empty chair. Is she having a breakdown, or are her visions real? This fast-moving and gripping tale -- in the tradition of Rear Window and Wait Until Dark -- keeps you guessing until the chilling climax. Learn More

My husband and I drove in to Fountain Hills from Mesa to see The Pirates of Penzance 5/25/2013. The Mainstage auditorium accommodates well over 100 guests. The first 3 rows are flat; we sat in the 3rd row. You aren't given where you will sit until you pick up your tickets at Will Call. All padded seats in the house seemed to be good; probably tight, though, for a larger person. The theatre was cooled to a comfortable temperature. The local actors were excellent as was the sound system. The cast used the entire auditorium for their performance on occasion. There was one "backdrop" change at intermission. They sell drinks (including wine) and cookies, but no food allowed in the theatre.

Wrong show for such a small area. Sets were minimal; costumes not in keeping with play's setting..intentional? More a mish-mosh. Have seen much better shows there and think F.H.Theater should stick to productions they are able to stage within...continued
A day at the beach for the daughters of a modern Major General provides Frederic and his pirate mates with a chance encounter and a first-rate opportunity to marry with impunity. Then duty, filial and otherwise, threatens to scuttle everything. Can catastrophe be averted? Will love prevail? Of course, but not before Gilbert and Sullivan fire a few broadsides at social stuffiness in this rollicking operetta that abounds in music, comical paradox and delicious silliness delivered with wit as sharp as corsair’s cutlass.
