After seeing a Moon Over Buffalo, An American Girl will board the Last Train to Nibroc, where she will have Something to Hide, probably In the Restroom at Rosenbloom's. Or maybe not. Either way, Little Colonel Playhouse is set to present its 2011-2012 season.
During its 2011-2012 season, Little Colonel Playhouse will present five shows. These productions include: Moon Over Buffalo (September), Last Train to Nibroc (December), Something to Hide (February 2012), An American Daughter (April 2012), and In the Restroom at Rosenbloom's (June 2012). All shows will occur at Little Colonel Playhouse, located at 302 Mt. Mercy Drive in Pewee Valley, KY.
Season tickets for the five shows are available now at $50 for adults, $40 for seniors, and $40 for students high school and under. More information on ticket purchases can be found at 502-241-4675, or emailing Bill Baker.
Little Colonel Playhouse will open its 2011-2012 season with performances of Moon Over Buffalo. The comedy features aging stars taking part in a repertory and having a shot at roles in a major movie. Unfortunately, the stars and other actors will find themselves dealing with love, stage issues, and misinformation, among other comedic issues.
Moon Over Buffalo will run at Little Colonel Playhouse from Sept. 22-Oct. 2. Anny Alexander wlll direct the Ken Ludwig-created production.
The Last Train to Nibroc will leave its station in December. The religious May and medically discharged Raleigh's varying lives connect while on a train that also holds the bodies of Nathaniel West and F. Scott Fitzgerald. A romance blooms, and May and Raleigh agree to go to the next Nibroc Festival. However, a year and a half later, when they attend the festival, they find romance harder to keep.
Last Train to Nibroc will run from Dec. 1-11, and auditions will take place on Sept. 23 and 25. Martha Frazier will direct the Arlene Hutton-created production.
For the first show of 2012, Little Colonel will present the appropriately-named thriller Something to Hide. Howard is tucked away in the English countryside, where he works on his latest writings. Twists and turns will come after the wife (accidentally?) runs over Howard's mistress.
Bob Zielinski will direct Something to Hide, which Leslie Sands created. The show will run from Feb. 9-19, 2012.
An American Daughter will arrive during the spring for Little Colonel. In this production, Lyssa Dent Hughes seems groomed for political life. She's a senator's daughter, in the direct bloodline of Ulysses S. Grant, and a health expert who is may become surgeon general. Then, the media finds out she once missed jury duty, and everything gets derailed.
An American Daughter will take place from April 12-22. Bethany Morse will direct the Wendy Wasserstein-created show.
Little Colonel will end its season In the Restroom at Rosenbloom's. A humorous story features three elderly women who meet in a department store's restroom lounge to discuss their lives. However, a threat on one of the women will lead to the others blocking the restroom door.
Nancy Hoover will direct the Ludmilla Bollow-created show, and the production will run from June 7-17.
