Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920's,
when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born.
Jule Styne's music and Stephen Sondheim's lyrics include Let Me Entertain You,
Some People, You'll Never Get Away from Me, If Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl,

This is a gripping story of one of the most frightening aspects of show business.

This grand old (1938) musical was revived in London in 1984 and came to New York in 1986.
The late Viscount Hareford had a youthful, unfortunate marriage - and kept discreetly out of sight
was a son and heir. The Hareford Hall set are despondent when the family solicitor
finds the legitimate heir in Lambeth. There is a cockney invasion of the hall -
Bill, his girlfriend and his mates, and the Lambeth Walk is danced by all.
By Andrew Bergman

June 15 – 30
Two married art dealers struggle with the visit of the wife's goody goody sister,
her uptight CPA husband, and her archetypal Jewish Mother - who are there to try to
save their college student daughter from the horrors of living only for sex.
By Leslie Darbon
Adapted from Agatha Christie’s novel
Directed by Sherrionne Brown
July 20 – August 4
The announcement in the local paper states time and place of a murder to occur
in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of several occupants, temporary and
permanent, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle
of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following
the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some
risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation scene just before the final curtain.
Court Jester's Young People's Theatre

July 12 – 21
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust
containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking
too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos
from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his
care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping,
and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers
of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
