November 14-17, 2024 | DEATHTRAP by Ira Levin
In this classic comedic thriller, a washed-up playwright finds a chance to rise to the top once more, a shot he’d be willing to kill for. Sidney Bruhl hasn’t written a hit play for 18 years when he receives a script from a former student that’s a guaranteed success. Sidney jokes to his wife that it’d be just as easy to murder the young man and steal the script for his own. Directed by Anderson theatre veteran, Andy Persinger, this sharply funny play is full of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat, while laughing hysterically.
Tickets: $12 / Festival Seating
Performances at 7:00pm & 2:00pm at THE JAKE HOOVER THEATRE

December 12-15, 2024 | THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart
Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley are thrilled when Sheridan Whiteside, a brilliant, witty, and widely beloved radio celebrity, accepts their invitation to dinner on his tour through Ohio. However, when Whiteside injures himself by slipping on a piece of ice on their doorstep and is confined to their home for the better part of December, the Stanleys are not so pleased with the change in their household. This clever script, directed by Brian Shetterly is arguably one of the most beloved comedies of the American theatre.

January 16-19, 2025 | THE MONKEY’S PAW and THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE by W. W. Jacobs & Christopher Durang
In another “first” for THE ALLEY, Sharon Stafford directs two one-act plays, one of terror and one of hilarity. The classic story,“THE MONKEY’S PAW”, by W.W. Jacob, is adapted for the stage and presents the story of a couple given a dried, monkey’s paw which grants three wishes, but not without hellish consequences. In “THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE” the playwright presents on stage a protagonist who finds himself backstage where he is apparently the understudy for the lead. It’s two plays for the price of one!

February 20-23, 2025 | BUS STOP by William Inge
Kathleen Wile makes her directorial debut with THE ALLEY in this story of travelers on a bus stranded in a small roadside diner during a Kansas snowstorm. One traveler, a nightclub singer, is pursued by “a young cowboy with all the romantic finesse of a rodeo bull”, while the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver find time to develop a friendship; a middle-aged scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe gets her first taste of romance.
It’s a wonderful “slice of life” classic of the stage and screen.

March 20-23, 2025 | JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare
Ronnie Johnstone plays “Marc Antony” in this production of the Shakespeare classic directed by Rick Vale. Based on events in Roman history, this is the story of a powerful ruler brought down by the betrayal of those he held dear. The wildly popular Julius Caesar faces a group of conspirators, including his close friend, Brutus, as they work to stop him from becoming king, as he ignores the warnings of soothsayers, and his wife. Come enjoy a classic in the beautiful setting of THE ANDERSON MUSEUM of ART.
