"Marriage is Murder" is a comedy about murder mystery writers Paul and Polly Butler. They are divorced, but a chance to turn their joint literary creation, Miss Charlie, into a movie forces them to work together once again. As they try out plot ideas on each other, it becomes a funny, high spirited game of cat and mouse. The part of Polly is played by June Koc with Peter Stearns as Paul; play is directed by Angie Koch. Opening night dessert and champagne reception is 7 p.m. Thursday, May 10.
"The Star-Spangled Girl," a classic Simon comedy set in the 1960s, is the story of a love triangle mixed with politics. Cast is Jason Boeckman, Kelly Greten, and Bianca De Sanctis; play is directed by June Koc. A third week of shows was just announced, new dates added are 8 p.m. July 19, 20, and 21.
