SRO Production of SPELLING BEE

Cider Mill Playhouse
Endicott, NY

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE, produced by SRO and presented at CMP: An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. Recommended for ages 13 and up. $22 adults, $20 students/seniors

Cider Mill Playhouse

Get your deerstalker cap on—the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Cider Mill Playhouse
Endicott, NY

A farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play’s humor, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde’s artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Oscar Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.

Peter & The Starcatcher

Cider Mill Playhouse
Endicott, NY

A play with music; dramatic comedy, appropriate for ages 10+

Tony-nominated including for best new play, Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be Peter Pan. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

Molly, a Starcatcher Apprentice, finds herself in the company of pirates and a giant crocodile as she and three orphan boys (one of whom is unnamed) attempt to return a trunk of precious starstuff to her father. Adventures abound as they’re pursued by a mustached pirate captain and his sidekick Smee. Along the way Molly learns what it means to grow up and is reunited with her father. The nameless orphan and his friends take up residence on this island where dreams are born and time is never planned – the island where that nameless orphan is christened Peter Pan.

The Drowsy Chaperone

Cider Mill Playhouse
Endicott, NY

by Lisa Lambert, Greg Morrison (Music & Lyrics) and Bob Martin, Doug McKellar (Book) Winner of 5 Tony Awards (including Best Book & Best Original Score) and 7 Drama Desk Awards

The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. Hailed by New York Magazine as, “The Perfect Broadway Musical” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Pump Boys & Dinettes

Cider Mill Playhouse
Endicott, NY

The ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the ‘Dinettes’, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway. With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils.

“Both musically and theatrically, a triumph of ensemble playing. It doesn’t merely celebrate the value of friendship and life’s simple pleasures, it embodies them.” – The New York Times

Book, Lyrics and Music by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel and Jim Wann
