June 16th - July 15th
August 4th - September 2nd
This hilarious retelling of The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha begins in a Starbucks, where playwright Ben Eisenberg is feverishly working on his stage adaptation of Don Quixote, with rehearsals starting tomorrow. But there’s one big problem ~ he hasn’t written a single word. With help/pressure from his agent and possibly a near-lethal dose of caffeine and Xanax, Starbucks begins to transform, with patrons from the coffee shop becoming characters in the rapidly developing story. With 6 actors, multiple characters, windmills, horses, and demons, this fast-paced comedy is sure to keep the audience on the edge of their camp chairs.
Newly retired friends, Marty and Fred, are handling retirement in very different ways ~ Marty wants to explore the open road on a new Harley, and Fred is focused on his health by inventing a variety of new ailments. With a little "redirection" from their wives, the guys come up with a creative solution that helps them flex their muscles, work with sharp-pointy objects, and bring excitement back into their lives. Laugh your way through their journey of discovering just how fun, and funny, retirement can be. 
Tickets on sale for our 2023 Summer Season at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre starting February 1st!
