Summer Theatre

Stratton Players was established in 1925, making it one of the oldest community theatre groups in the country.
For two weekends only (May 14, 15, 21, 22 at 8 p.m. and May 16, and 23 at 2 p.m.) they will perform "What I Did Last Summer" by A. R. Gurney. Vacationing with his mother and sister on the shore of Lake Erie in 1945, Charlie is looking forward to loafing with friends. Against Mom’s wishes, he gets a job with the town misfit, Anna, known as the “Pig Woman”. Charlie decides her bohemian lifestyle is for him, and with Dad in the Pacific, it’s up to Mom to confront Anna, with whom she has history. A charming, coming-of-age tale. Tickets $12.00.

Always...Patsy Cline tells the true story of the special friendship between two women, one a rising star and the other a devoted fan, over a pot of strong coffee in Louise's kitchen and through letters and phone calls shared until Patsy's untimely death. Re-live the magic through the songs that made Patsy Cline a pop and country music legend: Crazy, Sweet Dreams, Walkin' After Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, and much more.

Peterborough Players will present "Once in a Lifetime" by Moss Hart and George Kaufman at 8 p.m. on June 9, 11, and 12 and 2 p.m. on June 13. Once in a Lifetime is a rollicking tale of three down and out troupers who decide to head for Hollywood and try their luck with the newly invented talkies. It's a fast-paced wild romp and a marvelous spoof of tinsel land. Tickets $15 adults, $10 students/children.
