Scottie Templeton's a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway
press agent and former scriptwriter, he's everyone's friend, nobody's hero
and a great womanizer who's managed to live over fifty years without taking
anything seriously including love, marriage, and fatherhood. Life's been
one continuous gag. But at fifty-one, he finds the script's been rewritten as
a tragedy. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect,
comes to visit. Scottie's one concern is to make friends with his son, for
everyone else adores Scottie including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and
his doctor. Tribute is a warm, funny, touching play with wonderful characters.
With: Larry LaRose, Bob Kleinberg, Carlo Olivi, Barbara Lambert, Edye Smith, Elizabeth Dapo, and Mary Rogers.

season! Four non-musicals and two musicals! Family friendly to campy sci-fi!
19th century to the future! Plan now to come out to GAC for all of these
Beau Jest - directed by Norma Ozur - October 20 thru November 11
Sarah's close and loving family would certainly object -- very loudly -- if they were to meet her choice of boyfriend. What to do, what to do? He's coming to celebrate Dad's birthday! Aha! Clever Sarah has chosen a "pretend" beau that will meet with everyone's approval! Or will he? This charming and delightful comedy may provide a solution to her dilemma.
The Wizard of Oz - directed by Jon Gardner - November 24 thru December 17
Dorothy and Toto travel to Oz and join a Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion in search of the Wonderful Wizard. The beloved musical movie version of The Wizard of Oz is brought to life on the GAC stage with Wicked Witches, Flying Monkeys, Ruby Slippers, Munchkins and more. Songs include "Over the Rainbow," "If I Only Had a Brain," "Yellow Brick Road" and "We're Off to See the Wizard." This high-energy show will delight your whole family. Directed by Jon Gardner, Music Directed by Daniel Flores and Choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell. Produced by Win Britt.
Almost, Maine - executive directed by Bob Kleinberg - January 26 thru February 17
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
Angel Street - directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell - March 2 thru March 24
Handsome, kindly Mr. Manningham indulges and protects his young wife, who seems confused and forgetful. It's concerning, because Mrs. Manningham's mother went insane. Could the young woman be taking after her mother? How will her behavior affect her marriage? Experience the uncertainties of the Manninghams' lives in this tale, which was the basis for the classic movie, Gaslight.
Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery - directed by Ann Lowe-Barrett - April 13 thru May 5
Yes, that Baskerville, a comedic take on Conan Doyle's famous story by the darling of Broadway, Ken Ludwig. Holmes, Watson and 40 other characters (played by 3 other actors) gallop through the English countryside in search of a murderer. They find butterflies, red herrings, love, and plenty of laughs along the way! Directed and produced by the Ruby Griffith award winning team of Ann Lowe-Barrett and William Powell Jr.
Return to the Forbidden Planet - directed by Jeffery Lesniak - May 18 thru June 9
Shakespeare's forgotten rock and roll masterpiece! Blast off on a routine flight and crash into the planet D'Illyria where a sci-fi version of The Tempest set to rock and roll golden oldies unfolds with glee. The planet is inhabited by the sinister scientist Dr Prospero; his delightful daughter Miranda; Ariel, a faithful robot on roller skates, and an uncontrollable monster, the product of Prospero's Id, whose tentacles penetrate the spacecraft. Book by Bob Carlton, directed by Jeffery Lesniak, choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell.
