MSTW begins their Summer Season of Family Comedy, at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, with Ken Ludwig's Leading Ladies.
Actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they're performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" at the Moose Lodge in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces!
"Leading Ladies is consistently funny-indeed, increasingly hilarious as it progresses." - Houston Chronicle

Our second production of the summer is Alone Together, by Lawrence Roman,
a hilarious comedy for those folks who understand what it means to have "boomerang kids."
After 30 years of relentless child rearing, George & Helene Butler are practically drooling with anticipation as their youngest, and last of three sons, drives off to start college. Dreams of carefree days and passion-filled nights are quickly dashed, however, when eldest son Michael, followed by middle sibling Elliott, take up residence in the bedrooms of their youth. Now mom and dad have to figure out how to push the birdies back out of the nest.
"One of the funniest shows we've seen in ages." - Herald News
