2014 Season

SHOUT! The Mod Musical
March 19th – April 6th, 2014
by Phillip George & David Lowenstein

SHOUT! is the mod musical magazine that brings back the beautiful “birds” and smashing sounds that made England swing in the 60’s. It features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir With Love”, “Downtown”, “Son of a Preacher Man”, and “Goldfinger”.


I Ought To Be In Pictures
April 23rd – May 11th, 2014
by Neil Simon

Herb, a Hollywood scriptwriter currently “at liberty”, is surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, a teenage daughter who’s trekked from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom. With Steffy, his sometime paramour at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and hopefully this time, get it right. Poignant and amusing, Neil Simon paints wonderfully dysfunctional family relationships with hilarity, honesty, and heart.


Fingers & Toes
June 4th – June 22nd, 2014
by Logan Medland

Tap dancer “Toes” MacGrath, and pianist “Fingers” St. Claire have managed to talk a major Broadway producer into coming to see their show in two weeks: a boy meets girl tap dance spectacular on the theme of love. A brand new work from Logan Medland, this entertaining production sizzles with exhilarating music, delightful witticisms, and high-energy tap routines that evoke the magic of the Fred Astaire – Ginger Rogers era.


All Shook Up
July 2nd – July 27th, 2014
Book by Joe DiPietro

Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Jailhouse Rock”, and “Don’t Be Cruel”.


La Cage Aux Folles
August 6th – August 31st, 2014
by Harvey Fierstein, Jean Poiret, Jerry Herman

This Tony Award winning musical remains one of Broadway’s all-time biggest hits. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges’ son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Albin tries to help by making a perfect family with hilarious results.


Comedy is Hard!
September 24th – October 12th, 2014
by Mike Reiss

A brand new play by Mike Reiss, the critically acclaimed writer of I’m Connecticut, will have its world premiere at the Ivoryton Playhouse. Set in a home for retired actors, the play takes an affectionate look at the relationship and rivalry between a retired stand-up comedian and a classical actress. Hilarious and bittersweet, this play is sure to resonate with audiences of all ages.


Say Goodnight Gracie
The Life, Laughter and Love of George Burns & Gracie Allen
October 29th – November 16th, 2014
