the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, FIDDLER
ON THE ROOFs universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality
and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

Playmakers Brings you Our 68th Season
A Grand Season of TraditionOld & New
Fiddler On The Roof Book by Joseph Stein Music by Jerry Bock Lyrics by Sheldon Harick
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters.
With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill
them with tradition in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
Rich in historical and ethnic detail, FIDDLER ON THE ROOFs universal theme of tradition cuts across
barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
Flamingo Court By Luigi Creatore
This three part "slice of life" takes place in three different condos and has audiences laughing at the
truth they see in what might be their own neighbors - only zanier. Flamingo Court has ten characters.
Which can be played by five actors in all the roles or cast up to ten actors. In any case, audiences
respond to this trilogy with uproarious laughter and leave feeling they have experienced great
entertainment.
Angelina, in 104, is a Neil-Simonesque three-character piece that starts with smiles and grows into a
hilarious, audience-howling ending.
Clara, in 204, is the shortest piece (ten to twelve minutes). It deals with two characters in a poignant
look at the problems of aging and separation. Powerful theater!
Harry, in 304, a five character play - and the wackiest - deals with an eighty-nine year-old gentleman
who is battling his greedy daughter at the same time that he gets involved with an aging hooker.
When the daughter and the hooker meet "the audience laughs up a Florida-worthy hurricane.

Dont Hug Me, Im Pregnant By Phil Olson Lyrics by Paul Olson
The story takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, in a little bar called "The Bunyan," owned by
Clara and Gunner Johnson. Clara is 8 months pregnant with their first child, and today she's
looking forward to her baby shower, getting lots of presents, and taking a break from her
raging hormones. Suddenly, a freak snow storm, a "tsnownami," hits Bunyan Bay and they
find themselves snowed in. All roads are closed. No one can get in or leave. Gunner's worst
nightmare comes true when Clara goes into labor and he realizes he's going to have to deliver
the baby in the bar.
Featuring 17 original songs including, "Babies and Beer," "If I Only Had a Boy," "Bun in the
Oven," "Baby Fever," "The 'Just Got Hosed Over by a Dork' Blues," and "If Men Had Babies,
We'd All Be Extinct."
Steel Magnolias By Robert Harling
The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody"
come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not
she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's
rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric
millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose
daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repar-
tee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when,
in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden
realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strengthand lovewhich
give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously
amiable company in good times and bad.
