Calendar Girls, with a script by Tim Firth who also co-wrote the movie, achieves exactly what it sets out to do. “It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, and it leaves you feeling better about life than you did when you entered the theatre.” When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow women’s club members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Based on the true story of eleven women who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls has become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.

Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation is a new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders and tinctures” have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave.

“I HAVE endeavored in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it ~ Their faithful Friend and Servant, C.D.” With this brief preface, Charles Dickens sets the stage for his classic tale where miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by three magical spirits who take him on a journey through his painful past, gloomy present, and possibly fatal future as he learns how his actions have affected those around him. A Christmas Carol instills a powerful message about redemption and the spirit of the holiday season. Adapted from the original story by A. Adams.

Playwright Neil Simon got his first big break in the early ’50s as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s fabled television series Your Show of Shows, and this comedy takes a fictionalized look at the backstage chaos that went into producing one of the landmarks of television’s golden age.
Max Prince is the star of The Max Prince Show, a popular comedy-variety series that is a major hit on the East Coast, but network executive insists that it’s too sophisticated for the Midwest, and urges Prince to dumb down his act. Between the tensions of producing an hour of top-quality comedy each week and being pestered about his ratings, Prince is beginning to unravel. His last line of defense against both the network and the ratings are his writing staff, which spends its days coming up with business for the show while hurling humorous invective at each other and anyone else within earshot. Keeping up a running commentary on the writing, fighting and wacky antics is Simon’s alter-ego Lucas Brickman.
