Enjoy a tasty, catered meal with friends at the Tiller Arts Center. And then comedy! Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Whimsical Winter Variety Showcase

The winter season of OnStage features teens from area school districts who have independently selected, written, and planned skits, songs, and dance numbers to showcase their unique talents and delve deeper into principles of stagecraft. Our talented staff of educators and veterans of theater will provide guidance as teens craft independent and group projects, including, but not limited to, musical numbers, short scenes, and monologues. They will work together over ten weeks to select and arrange individual and group projects into a culminating showcase performance.

The first session will be held Saturday, November 14th, noon-4pm.

Apply for scholarships by November 7th.
