More Information


A classic comedy of the 1940s bounds onto the stage to wrap up the season. Staid, sane Mortimer Brewster and his more than eccentric family have delighted theater-goers for 70 years. They are all back, the sweet little aunties who have found a way to “help” lonely old gentlemen find happiness, Teddy, who thinks he’s the President, the murderous Jonathan, who bears an unfortunate resemblance to a movie monster, and a host of people who seem to drop in at the most inopportune times — making a it full night for poor Mortimer and his fiancee, Elaine. This wild farce will have you in stitches from start to finish, so polish up your funny bone and prepare to laugh yourself silly!
