George Horvath loves his job in Hammerschmidt’s Parfumerie, at least, he did until last week when Mr. Hammerschmidt began acting so strangely. Now everyone in the shop is on edge and George is on thin ice with his normally pleasant employer, and all just days before Christmas. Add to that his constant feuding with the seemingly scornful Amalia Balash. If only his strident coworker were as wonderful as the mysterious girl with whom he has been corresponding over the past year...

E.P Dowdall adapts the delightful Hungarian play by Miklos Lazlo that inspired the films: The Shop Around the Corner, In The Good Old SummertimeYou've Got Mail, and the Broadway musical She Loves Me.

An Evening of One Acts

December 5, 2016

The Flattering Word - by George Kelly
Directed by Anna Burden
Loring Rigley does not approve of the Theatre. But when his wife;s friend - a noted actor - comes to town, he may find that there is more of the theatre in himself than he'd care to admit. A delightful story of faith and the stage and the spark of inspiration in all of us.

Blind Date - by Horton Foote
Directed by Emilee Odegard
Sarah Nancy does not like any of the young men in town, and her matchmaking aunt is desperate to set her up with someone, but awkward Felix is the only one to hand. She sets up the blind date, over the objections of her long-suffering husband and the disinterested Sarah Nancy. Will these two opposites make it through the evening?

In this beloved musical, arrogant professor Henry Higgins sets out to win a bet that he can pass off cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle as a socialite simply by correcting her speech. The casual bet soon proves to be more than either Higgins or Eliza bargained for; both soon find that they have far more to gain, or lose, than they ever thought.

This classic musical by Lerner and Lowe continues to delight with its wonderful music, warm humor, and story of unexpected love.
