Teamed Up On and Offstage!

November 2-18, 2018
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm
Performed in 35below


Michael and Brenda Lilly are a team both on and off the stage. They each have a list of credits a mile long! And in November, they're combining forces to produce The Man in the Bright Nightgown, a one man show starring Michael and directed by Brenda!

Here's the story: On a hot August night, an inebriated Jimmy Wharton stumbles into his backyard to converse one last time with the larger-than-life father he laid to rest earlier that day. As he works his way through their often fraught relationship, Jimmy ends up face-to-face with his own shortcomings in this colorful, comedic and poignant play written by award winning NC playwright Tom Huey.

This is a gorgeous piece of theatre - and there's limited seating available!

It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting!

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out!

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain… or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!? Performed by students ages 13-17 in our Tanglewood Youth Theatre Production Class.
