December 12 - December 21, 2008
The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge
Holiday Comedy by Mark Brown.  Directed by Marjorie Megivern.
The Trial of the Century!  A year after his miraculous transformation in
A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways.  He has
decided to sue Jacob Marley and the three ghosts for breaking and
entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder
and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.  A pure delight.

January 23 - February 1, 2009
The Premature Corpse
Crime Thriller by Mike Johnson.  Directed by Joe Carvajal.
The drama is masterfully plotted and has more twists and turns than a
mountain road.  State's witness Evan Jorris, is under a government
protection program after testifying against the mob.  But the setup is
not what is seems, and the story much more complicated.  This one will
definitely keep you guessing!

March 27 - April 5, 2009
The Cemetery Club
Comedy by Ivan Menchell.
Co-Directed by Bob & June Stacy.
A popular, heart-warming comedy about three Jewish widows who
meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband's graves.
Ida is sweet-tempered and ready to begin a new life.  Lucille is a feisty
embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun, and Doris is
priggish and judgmental.  When Sam the butcher enters the scene,
meeting the widows while visiting his wife's grave, Doris and Lucille
squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida.  They are
guilt-stricken when this nearly breaks Ida's heart.

May 29 - June 7, 2009
Writer's Cramp
or How Will Shakespeare Got Into Show Biz
Comedy by Larry Glaister (winner of BLT's latest New-Play Competition)
Directed by Gene O'Hare.
Don't miss this delightful, Sixteenth Century farce about young William
Shakespeare.  We all have experienced some of Shakespeare's plays,
but if you have ever wondered how Will got some of his ideas, this
World Premiere production may help explain that, and give you a
whole new outlook concerning the Bard of Avon.

Since BLT was unable to cast our scheduled July production of The
Rainmaker
, we are happy to announce that in its place we will present

We have selected a wonderful combination of several one-act plays
that include a delightful mixture of light comedy and touching story
lines that are sure to please everyone in our audience, and we invite
you to be part of this fun filled, summertime presentation.
This very different presentation will open on July 17th for a two-week
run ending July 26th.  Friday and Saturday performances will be at 8
PM, and Sunday matinee at 3 PM.

Bell, Book and Candle
Romantic Comedy by John Van Druten.  Directed by Darien Aiken.
Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern-day witches who can actually
cast spells, and she casts one over Shepherd Henderson to keep him
away from a rival, because Gillian is attracted to him.  He falls head
over heels in love with her, but witches unfortunately cannot fall in
love, and this imperfection leads to a number of delightful difficulties.  
This is a completely magical and enchanting romantic comedy!

December 18 - December 20, 2009
The Christmas Bus (presented by the BLT Youth Troupe)
Holiday Musical by Robert Inman.  Directed by Sonia Arnold
It's Christmas Eve and Mrs. Frump, the director of the Peaceful Valley
Orphanage, is planning what she believes will be the most special
Christmas ever for her kids.  The only problem is that she hasn't told
the busybodies on the Orphanage Board of Trustees, who believe that
Frump has gotten too old to handle the rowdy kids.  This show is filled
with big-hearted Yuletide spirit.  Don't miss it!  December 18, 19 will
start at 8:00 pm and December 20 will start at 3:00 pm.

Please note:  All dates and shows are subject to change.
