A Christmas Story - 2017

Written by Jean Shepherd
Adapted by Philip Grecian
Directed by Michael McHenry

Cast: 

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more.
A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial.

Death Trap - 2017

Written by Ira Levin
Directed by Avery Parker

Cast:
Craig Fowler as Sydney Bruhl
Wendy Parker as Myra Bruhl
Andrew Skinner as Clifford Anderson
Darla Welton as Helga Ten Dorp
Avery Parker as Porter Milgrim

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a "dry" spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

Cheatin' - 2017

by Del Shores
Directed by Kenneth Thies

Cast:

Before Daddy's Dyin' Who's Got the Will? there was this award winning comedy set in the west Texas watering hole of Lowake. Gossip, the town's major pastime, ignites a blaze of infidelity that engulfs three couples with the zany precision of a Feydeau farce. The clan includes Bo Bob, the dimwitted mailman, and Clarence, local stud and mechanic who's been messin' with Ovella since high school. His faithful girl is Sara Lee Turnover, the beautician. Teddy Joe, Ovella's wronged husband who is more brawn than brain, Maybelline, the overweight waitress who wants to be in love, and a narrator/story teller/singer who doubles as a psychic and believes in happy endings complete the cast. The comedy is fast paced and touching with a sense of authentic Texas humor.

Trouble brews when Smith is mugged and ends up in hospital, where both of his addresses surface, causing both the Streatham and Wimbledon police to investigate. Having upset his schedule, Smith becomes hopelessly entangled in his attempts to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police officers, with help from his lazy layabout neighbor upstairs in Wimbledon.

Adapted by Kristi Cunningham 

Directed By: Kristi Cunningham


SYNOPSIS: Faerie Tale, keeper of the stories of the wood, begins this classic tale, retold with a bit of an Irish twist. It’s the beloved story of a kind-hearted prince, cursed to live as a beast, and the girl who comes to love him. Due to the scheming by the family business manager, a devoted father believes he and his three daughters are destitute and move to a rundown cottage. They are unaware that the land is under an enchantment until Father encounters the Beast nearby. For having picked a rose from the Beast’s garden, Father is forced to make a promise to return. One daughter, Keala, decides to go in his place, and over the following weeks, befriends the lonely Beast. With some help from the good faeries, they are able to overcome the evil Faerie Una and find a friendship that transcends every boundary and a love that breaks every curse.

Red, White and Tuna - 2016

By: Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams


Craig Fowler as:
Arles Struvie, Amber Windchime, Didi Snavely, 
Petey Fisk, Momma Byrd, 

Charlene Bumiller, Stanley Bumiller, Vera Carp, Helen Bedd & Garland Poteet

And Avery Parker as:
Thurston Wheelis, Star Birdfeather, Elmer Watkins, Bertha Bumiller, Joe Bob Lipsey, 

Pearl Burras, R.R Snavely, Inita Goodwin, Leonard Childers & Reverend Sturgis Spikes.


Red, White & Tuna is the 3rd of 4 installments in the Tuna series. As hilarious as the first "tuna" performed. This much anticipated installment in the series takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Tuna. We rejoin the residents of the "third smallest" town in the great state of Texas as they reconvene for a high school reunion and celebrate the Fourth of July, Tuna style. There's also a hotly contested election to choose a queen for the celebration. It should be a great time, if they can survive write-in candidates, alien visitations and poisonous potato salad. 

It's been several years since we left Bertha and Arles dancing at the end of A Tuna Christmas...Did the romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any "cosmic" communications from R.R.'s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be asked and answered in the side-splitting spoof of life in rural America. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.

Bring your sense of humor, this is an equal opportunity offender....



The Diary of Anne Frank - 2015

Directed by Craig Fowler


November 13th 2015 was opening night of the Diary of Anne Frank, we had a nice crowd even with so many other activities happening but not sure many left without a tear in their eye. Many times we don't think about the past history of the wars, what people endured all the hardships. We read books, we see movies, we say 'wow' did that really happen!?! Seeing history in play, people acting the past out on stage puts a different light on it, you can see the hardships, the way they had to live in close quarters, the struggles of lack of food, not being able to use water to do something as simple as flush a toilet, or drink water from the faucet without being found out as 8 people lived for over 2 years this way. This play was one of SDC's peoples vision to come to the stage and her dream came to light - Come join us at the Star Theater in Willow Springs to step into the past and learn how a group of people could band together in such a unthinkable time of history. The Diary of Anne Frank is based on the writings of a young girl in hiding during the Holocaust - this is her story....

Wouldn't it be great fun to direct William Shakespeare's "Hamlet"? That was what New York City girl, Margo Daley always thought...until she is hired to do just that by the Peaceful Glen Memorial Players in their theater, a renovated funeral home. They DO have a couple of conditions, however. Margo has to make the play a melodrama, so the audience will know when to throw the popcorn at the bad guy, *Oh, and Margo has to insert the sponsors' names into the play and, by the way, it has to take place in the Old West. "And make sure the actors talk real loud because of all the noise the audience makes sucking their fingers," states one of the council members, an occupational hazard brought about by them selling barbecue before the show. All kinds of eccentric characters come out of the woodwork in this riotous tribute to life on the community theater stage. Even the pizza delivery boy is given parts - several since Margo only has four actors to portray the five-act tragedy. Fast lines and even faster exits punctuate this farce as Margo and her troupe of misguided actors find out what it's like when they begin "Barbecuing Hamlet."

Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott - 2014

Directed by 

Avery Parker


Star Dramatic Company of Willow Springs presents "Wait Until Dark".


A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Neither Sam nor Susy have any idea of the secret it holds. When the situation becomes urgent, the con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that Sam is in trouble with the police and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between them.

Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling - 2014

Directed by 

Craig Fowler


Star Dramatic Company of Willow Springs presents "Steel Magnolias".
The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth, and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions. A sudden realization of their mortality deeply affects the ladies, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

It roamed the countryside for three years, killing relentlessly, yet remaining a mystery to all. Now nearly 250 years later, it is a gruesome piece of little known history that is still mystifying.

The Drowsy Chaperone - 2013

Book by:  Bob Martin and Don McKellar

Music and Lyrics by: Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison

Directed by: Ryan Smith


This great comedic musical begins when the curtain rises on a present-day musical theatre fanatic eager to tell you about his favorite Broadway musical -- “The Drowsy Chaperone.” He’s the ultimate Broadway fan and “Drowsy” is his guilty pleasure.

As he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show cleverly and magically blooms to life, telling the hilarious tale of a pampered Broadway starlet and her debonair fiance, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of bumbling gangsters. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins everyone into musical comedy euphoria.

To chase his blues away, a modern day musical theatre addict known simply as 'Man in Chair' drops the needle on his favorite LP — the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair's infectious love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theatre.


Congratulations to the Cast of Drowsy Chaperone!!!!

Greater Tuna - 2013

Written by :

Jaston  Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard.

Directed by Jo-martin Archuleta


Welcome to GREATER TUNA, the tall Texas tale of a hilarious day in Tuna, the third smallest town in the Lone Star State where the lion's club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. A boisterous comedy starring master comedians Ryan Smith and Craig Fowler (helped by around 40 lightning quick costume changes) who portray all 19 characters: men, women, children and animals. The show ushers us though a day in Tuna, starting with the morning broadcast from radio station OKK and wandering in and out of homes and businesses of the denizens of this colorful community. Ever vigilant Vera Carp leads The Smut Snatchers of the New Order in their campaign to clear the library shelves of dirty books like "Huckleberry Finn" and "Romeo and Juliet" while the annual high school essay contest produces entries entitled "Human Rights -- Why Bother?" and "Living With Radiation." Petey Fisk argues for animal rights. UFO sightings and Didi's used weapons sale all contribute to the hilarity. GREATER TUNA is a funny, loving portrait of rural America... big hearts, small minds and all.


This will be the first of four plays in the Tuna Saga that the SDC will be preforming, so quadruple your fun and come see all four shows we will be putting on in the future.

Stop That Villain! ... Have you no shame, Rip Roquefort?

Written by: Tim Kelly

Directed by: Evonne Barron

The unscrupulous Rip Roquefort makes a bad living cheating at cards.  He lives at the Virginia City Hotel but pays no rent because the landlady, Jenny Flutterpearl, thinks hes in love with her.  Jenny doesnt realize that the miserable servant shes hired to wash and scrub is actually the villains wife, Comatose.  Things get even more interesting for Roquefort with the arrival of Auntie Em, her niece Little Jane Dovetonsil and the crafty Judge Lynch.  Seems the villains uncle has left him a fortune — "if" he marries Little Jane within twenty-four hours.  Little Jane knows nothing of all this.  If she finds out about the will the money goes to "The Judge Lynch Foundation for Near-Sighted Albanians."  Roquefort arranges an "accident" for Comatose (it backfires) and urges a former partner in crime, Bathsheba Pickles, to sidetrack the local deputy, Merton Manly.  Complications build to a hilarious slow motion finale!  Hope you ejoyed the great food and had a great time as the cast tried to "STOP THAT VILLAIN!"  

Thank you for such a making this dinner show so successful! 

Thank you to our Veterans and the American Legion Hall Willow Springs!


The Grey Ladies Society

Written and Directed By:
Kristi Cunningham:

The Grey Ladies Society meets every week for no apparent reason.  None of the ladies can agree on a book to read or a movie to watch and heaven help them if they try a craft or art project.  The last attempt landed them in the emergency room in what has become known as the “super glue incident.”  In fact, the only thing they seem to be able to accomplish is a good deal of bickering and an occasional black eye.  But that all changes when a body is discovered during one of their meetings, and it’s not the “warm, breathing kind either!”  There’s no stopping them as they bungle, fumble  and stumble their way through a little bit of murder and a whole lot of romance.

Becky Romine as Nurse Bepin
Jackie Sharpe as Candice Arowai
Wendy Parker as Lucy Honeydew
David Boyd as The Nigel Curruthers

First, let me thank you, the audience for attending our play. This was my first endeavor as a director and consequently I will never again assume directing is easy! I sincerely hope you had as much fun watching it as we've had producing it.
I would like to thank Evonne Barron for keeping me in line and on track during this production. She is awesome and this wouldn't have happened without her.
I would like to thank Sharon Bales and crew from Willow Care for the delicious food and the catering service. It's nice to have professionals you can count on.
And finally, the backstage people you don't normally get to see. There are so many things that they make come together. If you saw them peering around the corner thank them but be careful. They are a shy and elusive....and sometimes bite. It they growl at you, don't make eye contact, just back away...slowly. You know who you are....Chris, Brenda, Tanner, Taylor, Topher
