Leading Ladies opened to a standing ovation!
"Full of fun and men in pantyhose!"
Wouldn’t you change course--in the blink of an eye-- to pluck a rich prize for someone as deserving as yourself? Well, in Leading Ladies, Leo and Jack leap into the quest. Leading Ladies is an award-winning farce, set in 1958 about two British actors so down on their luck that they're doing "Scenes from Shakespeare" at a Moose Lodge in Amish country, Pennsylvania. Jack and Leo hear about a local old lady who is about to die and wants to leave her fortune to her two long-lost English relatives. They are so desperate for cash that they decide to pass themselves off as her beloved nephews, Max and Steve. The trouble starts when they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces Maxine and Stephanie! Who really are “the Leading ladies”?
This laugh-out-loud show is full of love, deceit, cheating, stealing and, oh yes, men in pantyhose.
Written by Ken Ludwig, this highly acclaimed comedy will appeal to all audiences. It is directed by Junie Hutchinson.

Soon it will be summer and CentreStage Theatre will be hopping with children of all ages! Check our website for the camps of 2015, so many to choose, from musical to non-musical! But don't leave it too long! The camps are filling rapidly.
Theatre has many benefits for people of all ages. For $150, you can sponsor a child, who otherwise can’t afford it, to attend one of the drama camps at CentreStage Theatre this summer. Because of generous donors last year, 9 children who would not have been able to attend experienced a week at camp.

One of CentreStage’s more endearing plays has been Sylvia which was presented on 2 different occasions in each theatre. It is now coming to Broadway this fall. The show will star Annaleigh Ashford and Julie White, who are both nominated for this year’s Tony Award for an actress in a featured role in a play. Ms. Ashford, nominated this year for her work in “You Can’t Take It With You,” will play the dog, Sylvia; Ms. White, nominated for her work in “Airline Highway,” will play Kate, one half of the couple. Ms. Ashford won the Tony for her work. The role of Greg, Kate’s husband, whose midlife crisis prompts Sylvia’s entrance into the household, has not yet been cast.
There was an off-broadway production. We were off-off Broadway but had a great time!
