Spring 2015

Our Spring 2015 Production will be “Prelude to a Kiss,” a modern comedy by Craig Lucas.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Director: Russell R. Greene

Prelude to a Kiss


Synopsis of Play:

This acclaimed romantic comedy by Craig Lucas is an allegorical adult fairy tale with a twist. For Peter and Rita the course of their true love runs smoothly, one might even say magically, until a single kiss from an elderly uninvited wedding guest changes everything dramatically! From that moment forward a very confused Peter must figure out what happened and rescue the terrified Rita from some very dark and powerful magic. Will he succeed and will it be in time?

You may have seen the 1992 movie with Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin. Come see the play that it was based on!
