2014 Membership Campaign

At the Ivoryton Playhouse ticket sales only pay for the shows – membership dollars keep our building open and our mission thriving.

Without your support the stage would go dark, the phones wouldn’t ring, the roses wouldn’t bloom and there would be a lot less music and laughter in our community.

$40 helps to preserve our historic building and maintain our lovely grounds

$100 helps to fund educational initiatives such as our internship program and summer children’s theatre

$250 helps us to offer discounts for seniors, veterans and currently serving military and their families

$1,000 helps us to provide housing and transportation for our talented actors

$5,000 helps the Playhouse to reach out and forge more partnerships with community groups, civic organizations and local non-profits

We hope you will take this opportunity to become a member today.  Your gift will be acknowledged in our 2014 Season Playbill.

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change
at The Ivoryton Playhouse

Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit!

Now on stage at the Ivoryton Playhouse

Ivoryton:  The much loved musical comedy I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts has played more than 5,000 performances, has been translated into more than dozen languages and produced the world over and now opens at the Ivoryton Playhouse on September 25th.

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as “the relationship”. From dating and waiting to love and marriage; from the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”

Michael Brian Dunn* and Sheila Coyle*

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change goes through your funny bone and straight to your heart!” said Jacqui Hubbard, Executive Director “You’ll fall head over heels for this hilarious musical comedy about that terribly wonderful, absolutely crazy thing called love!”

Christopher Sutton will be directing and starring in this production. Christopher was supposed to have been joined on stage by his beautiful wife, Lynn Philistine, but the arrival of the newest member of their family, a bouncing baby boy, Dylan, has necessitated a change in plans! The cast includes Ivoryton favorite Sheila Coyle*; Holly Holcombe* who was last in Ivoryton as a student at the Hartt School in a production of A Woman of a Certain Age; and Michael Brian Dunn* who will be making his Ivoryton debut. Musical direction is by Logan Medland, costumes by Kari Crowther, set design by Tony Andrea and lights by Tate Burmeister.
