NORA SWAN: Murder Most Personal
World War II shattered countless lives in countless ways. Most on the battlefield, but then there were the invisible ones… those who had to do the covert work in order to unearth the secrets. Richard Swan was one of those. He was murdered in what was set to look like a car accident, in order to keep him from revealing one of those secrets. His wife, Nora, was in the car with him. Nora survived, but was left blind as a result.
Our story opens in 1951 as Richard’s friend Dempsey informs Nora that she is, in fact, still a target and he’s narrowed it down to where he’s certain her enemy is actually one of her closest friends… BUT, WHO?
A GHOSTLY DRAMA… PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN!
Everett Hammond passes away, a very wealthy man, in possession of the family’s ancestral home… Willowmere! He leaves the entire estate to his niece, Violet and two nephews, Wesley and Edmund. Their intent is to quickly sell everything but, the Will states that they may not sell Willowmere until they read the diary of their ancestor who built it. They are drawn into a story filled with treasure, death and the American Revolution. And, reaching the Journal’s climax, they witness for themselves the collision of past and present when the spirit of their founder’s child appears and all they can do is watch in total disbelief.
CHASING SANTA, A Christmas Musical
CHASE STORYMAN has dreamed of meeting SANTA since he was a little boy and now that he’s an anchorman for YMI NEWS he lands an exclusive interview at the North Pole with SANTA himself.
But, his co-anchor, LILAC HELLOWITZ won’t stand for CHASE being able to get the interview of the century on his own. She insists on going with him. Only problem?… LILAC is Jewish and really doesn’t get the whole “Christmas” thing.
When they finally arrive at SANTA’S WORKSHOP, CHASE suddenly realizes he has a sort of a problem. He has developed a thing called “Santa on a Pedestal Syndrome” which means that every time he catches site of SANTA, he hyperventilates and passes out. Not the best thing for conducting interviews.
But remember… SANTA can solve anything because, after all, he is SANTA! Join Santa, Mrs. Claus, Dasher, Prancer, Chase and Lilac for this hilarious trip to the North Pole.
THE IRISH WAKE OF PADDY O’TOOLE
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
Well, burying him once just wasn’t enough, it seems all of you wish to go through it again so … being the crazy and wild gang we are, we just had to comply!
The delightful and mischievous Paddy O’Toole has passed away and all his friends have gathered to say their last good-byes. Things start rather normally until suddenly the ghost of Paddy O’Toole appears to participate in his own wake. It seems there is a delay in processing … up there … and he is in a holding pattern before he is able to go to the great beyond, so he thought he might as well see what everyone has to say about him while he’s waiting.
At first everyone’s all freaked out but soon the real fun ensues when the memories come tumbling forth and the fighting begins. All through it, Paddy is ever the playful instigator causing every bit of trouble as he did when he was alive. It’s a heartfelt journey with a lot of laughs! And a real display of what it is to be Irish!
DATES & TICKETING TBD…
…BUT… You can probably guarantee we’ll be there the weekend OF St. Paddy’s Day 😉
An Unique Theatrical Experience
GYPSY STAGE COMPANY is built as an “ensemble theatre company”. You may have heard the phrase, “A theatre is a temple”. And, where that is very true, a theatre company developed as “ensemble” is built around creating a close knit group of serious, professional artists that work together continually, getting to know one another’s skill levels so well that they work as one body for the collective good of all. As a result, the caliber of the performance that is able to be presented is seamlessly unique and downright magical.
