When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

FIVE BARKS AND FIVE PAWS RATINGS!!!! An absolutely howling evening of songs, dance and laughter with an absolute terrific cast, costume and best of all, intimate seating. Truly one of the best productions I have seen in a small theatre this year and I attend at least one theatre performance a week. DON'T WALK LIKE A HUMAN, RUN LIKE A DOG TO GRAB TICKETS for a wonderful evening!
I’m Just Wild About Harry *is a musical based on Brandon Thomas’ hilarious English farce Charley’s Aunt first performed in 1892. Lamb and Reilly have placed this new adaptation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin circa 1910 and added some very fun songs from the early 1900s. Some of these magnificent songs include “Margie,” “K-K-K-Katy,” “Aba Daba Honeymoon,” “Oh, You Beautiful Doll” and “You Made Me Love You.”
Harry Whitman and Jack Chesney, undergraduates at Milwaukee University need a chapersone so that they can entertain Katy Spettigue and Margie Verdun, the niece and ward of Mr. Spettigue, a crotchety old miser. When Harry receives word from his aunt, Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez, a rich widow from Brazil whom he has never met, is coming to visit him; they invite Katy and Margie to lunch in order to meet her. But when the aunt’s visit is delayed, they persuade their friend Benjamin Babberley (known as “Babbs”) to impersonate her.
Cast: Dave Berges, Carol Jones, Sarah French, Mikhail Roberts, Louis Silvers, Melanie Taylor, Matthew Thompson, Doug Thornton and Beth Whitney
