As It Is in Heaven

By Arlene Hutton
Directed by Eric Harrell
October 6-8 & 13-15, 2023
Dede Robertson Theatre

Fanny’s arrival disrupts the routine of life and worship among the 1830s Shaker society in Pleasant Hill, Kentucky. When she starts seeing angels, and the other young women follow suit with similar spiritual experiences, her motives and honesty are questioned. The leaders are forced to grapple with the authenticity of these gifts, and what it means if they haven’t received them too. Heavenly hymns accompany earthly chores in this compelling drama.

As It Is in Heaven is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (

The Futrelle sisters of Fayro, Texas have taken over the annual church Christmas pageant, but things aren’t going so well. Frankie is enormously pregnant, Twink is in jail, and Honey Raye’s battle with Miss Geneva, who directed the pageant for the last 27 years, threaten to derail the whole thing. Throw in a kidney stone, food poisoning, an uncooperative cast, a family secret and an Elvis impersonator, and hilarity ensues. Can the family pull together? Can love prevail? Can the pageant be saved? Don’t miss this gut-busting Christmas comedy!

These Shining Lives

By Melanie Marnich
Directed by April Poland
February 16-18 & 23-25, 2024
Studio Theatre

The Radium Dial company hires women like Catherine in the 1920s and 30s to paint watch faces with glow-in-the-dark paint. As they dip their brushes into the paint, little do they know they are poisoning themselves. Strange symptoms begin to appear, but the company denies the radium’s danger. Catherine and friends struggle to find adequate medical treatment and a lawyer willing to take on their case. Their friendship, courage, and perseverance inspire us to find grace for our own battles.

The Spitfire Grill

By James Valcq and Fred Alley; based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff
Directed by Michael Kirkland

Dede Robertson Theatre

Stuck in the fading small town of Gilead, Wisconsin, the aging Hannah has been trying to sell her restaurant for a decade. Her nephew Caleb is out of work and out of sorts and takes it out on his wife Shelby. Joe the sheriff is lonely, and Effy is a gossip. When young Percy, newly released from jail, arrives in town, everyone is forced to grapple with their broken lives and need for forgiveness. At Percy’s suggestion, Hannah decides to raffle off the grill, with entries at $100 plus an essay describing why you want the grill. Mail pours in from across the country, every entrant hungry for redemption. With its gorgeous soulful score, scenes of reconciliation and hopeful themes, The Spitfire Grill will warm your heart.

The Spitfire Grill is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. (
