    The Last Lifeboat by Luke Yankee

    Production dates: August 19-September 4, 2016

    Joseph Bruce Ismay, an English businessman who served as chairman and managing director of the White Star Line of steamships becomes the perfect scapegoat for the sinking of the Titanic. Ismay saved as many people as he could, but with no women and children in sight, he stepped into the last lifeboat…and was branded a coward and a traitor forever. This play deals not only with the disaster itself, but the sensationalized trials and aftermath of an event that changed the world forever.

    Directed by Jeff Sams and Produced by Debra Kent

    Run Time:  2 hours (including 15 minute intermission)


    Paperless Ticketing

    by  • August 19, 2016

    green ticketThis season, we continue our move to be more environmentally friendly and will utilize paperless ticketing.  If you attended a performance last season, you’re already familiar with the process.  However, just in case, we thought we would remind everyone how it works. When you place an order for tickets (season, individual performance, change, and/or open),  the only available shipping method will be “Theatre Check-In.”  Once the order has been submitted, you’ll still receive an email confirmation of your order along with the date and time of the performance. Don’t forget to add the performance to your calendar.

    When you arrive at the theatre, on the day of the performance, you don’t need to do anything special.  When the House opens, you’ll proceed to the auditorium and check-in with the “Ticket Taker.”  You’ll be asked for your name.  That’s the name under which the order was submitted.  So, if your friend gave you his/her ticket, use his/her’s name.  Then, proceed in, select your seat, sit back, relax, and enjoy the performance.
