A Holiday Musical Comedy by Harlowe Reed

November 28 – December 31, 2014

Evenings at 8pm • Matinees at 2pm

It’s mid-December 1958 and the Stardust club has been hired to host a hurry-up wedding reception for a mysterious couple. It’s a race to beat the clock, further complicated by the arrival of a social worker looking for a fugitive from a foster home. And she’s pretty sure she’s looking in the right place.

But the show must go on, and the gang sings and dances some of the greatest rat pack and rock’n’roll songs of the era in their search for holiday magic.

This is the nineteenth year of the south Puget Sound’s Stardust Christmas tradition. A joy for the whole family!

The 39 Steps

a thrilling comedy by Patrick Barlow

January 22 – February 14, 2015

Evenings at 8pm • Matinees at 2pm

An outrageously funny stage version of Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller. Richard Hannay is a bored Londoner until he tries to help a counter-espionage agent prevent an organization of spies from stealing top secret information. But when the agent is killed, Hannay stands accused of the murder and finds himself on the run with a beautiful stranger who is less than eager to help save him and thwart the spy ring. Four actors playing an incomprehensible number of characters romp through a dizzying array of locations, train rides, chase scenes, and prat falls in this charmingly audacious homage to classic suspense cinema.

Laughter on the 23rd Floor

Laughter on the 23rd Floor

A laugh-’til-it-hurts comedy by Neil Simon

March 5 – 28, 2015

Evenings at 8pm • Matinees at 2pm

Set in 1953 in a scruffy office in Manhattan, this hilarious comedy was inspired by the playwright’s youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s television hit, Your Show of Shows. Laughter is the inevitable result of the stunning, stinging wit and comic drama of the harried writing staff as they scramble to top each other’s gags and capture the esteem of their madman star. The names have been changed to protect the guilty, but the play is a revealing peep-hole into a crucial time in American pop culture when television discovered its power for good… and evil!

A Comedy by Craig Wright

October 1 – 24, 2015


What a challenging, insightful, hilarious, and powerful show. This show does everything that theater should be doing today – it deeply engages with the issues of the day, and yet provides an element of escape, wonder, philosophical insight, and raw theatrical verve that is so often missing from the contemporary stage.— N. Hayes, audience member

Minneapolis. The day after 9/11. When Andrew arrives at Waverly’s apartment for a blind date, the two are startled to discover a bizarre string of coincidences that seems to connect them. As Waverly tries to reach her identical twin sister (who may or may not have been in one of the Towers), their evening is further complicated by visits from her crazed-musician neighbor, Ron, his oddly-silent girlfriend, Nancy, and Waverly’s great aunt, Joyce Carol Oates—played by a sock puppet. Hilarity and audacity are the hallmarks of this lively examination of fate vs. free will that serves as a welcome balm for what still ails all of us.
