This irreverent and poignant comedy was inspired by popular playwright Jeffrey Hatcher's memories of a childhood etiquette class he was forced to endure at the tender age of 10. His demanding instructor, Mrs. Mannerly, rules with a white-gloved iron fist and has yet to see a single student achieve a perfect score in her class over the course of a 36-year-long career. But once young Jeffrey uncovers his teacher's secret past, he sets out to be the first to make that top grade. Learn More

Prelude to a Kiss is titled after a torch song by Duke Ellington. In 1992, a film was made based on the play, starring Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin.
Immediately after a young couple named Peter and Rita have exchanged wedding vows, an unknown elderly man asks to kiss the bride. As he does, Rita’s soul and the old man’s magically exchange bodies. Neither Peter nor the wedding guests grasp what has happened. Peter leaves the wedding with a woman he believes is Rita. During their honeymoon, he comes to realize that Rita’s body is no longer inhabited by Rita’s true personality. He must find the old man, and keep his love for Rita alive… despite the fact that she is now in an unattractive body.
