George Bernard Shaw's play "The Devil's Disciple" is the story of Richard Dudgeon. Set during the Revolutionary War, Richard is considered by his friends and family be the "Devil's disciple" because of his rebellious personality and unfaithfulness to religion. However, when British Soldiers visit the home of the town's minister, Anthony Anderson, with the intentions of arresting Anderson, Mr. Dudgeon's true colors are shown. In a heroic moment Mr. Dudgeon allows the soldiers to arrest him, having mistaken him for Anderson, although it may mean the death of him.

Of Mice and Men

By: John Steinbeck

Oct. 3, 4, 5 and 10, 11, 12

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 2 pm

Director: Crystal Kayser

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly, that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss' promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

Sundays at 2 pm

Director: Victoria Wims

Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, three dozen Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor Christmas lights, a chicken pox epidemic, two southern spinsters, an estranged old man, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you've got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer. Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his money will take him. At first he thinks this town's inhabitants are "nuttier than fruitcakes," but soon he comes to admire, appreciate and adore this nutty little town.
