How they created marvelous works of art in the midst of such chaos and oppression.

Thursday, December 5 – Sunday, December 15: House of Tomorrow   

Presented by Super Summer Theatre and Speeding Theatre

House of Tomorrow weaves together humorous, yet poignant, stories about seniors taking strength from their yesterdays, pursuing the passions of their tomorrows, opening the doors and windows of their lives (AKA their houses) to remodeling and keeping their dreams big and their hopes high.

You’ll meet seniors navigating the uncharted waters of online dating, trying in vain to order a refill from a mail order pharmacy, responding to adult children concerned about driving safety, experiencing the stresses of forced downsizing and see how  one senior’s view of a weekend together differs hilariously from her daughter’s take on it—as  well as other fun stories about seniors undaunted by the challenges life keeps throwing at them!

Thursday, January 30 – Sunday, February 16: First Date   

Presented by Super Summer Theatre and Hynes-Sight Entertainment

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?

Thursday, March 5 – Sunday, March 22: The Rat Pack Lounge 

Presented by Super Summer Theatre and RearView Vegas Productions

Frank, Dean, and Sammy are up in heaven, but God tells them they left some unfinished business back on Earth. It seems Frank made an unfulfilled promise to Vic, the owner of the Rat Pack Lounge. Now he and the boys have one night to make things right. No need for look-alikes or impersonators—just a cast who can charm your audience with hits like “My Way,” “What Kind of Fool Am I?” and “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.” With more than 30 hit songs, “The Rat Pack Lounge” will leave you singing and savoring the days of highballs and high rollers.
