With a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford and music by Michael Gore, Carrie: The Musical is adapted from the Stephen King novel, Carrie.  The story focuses on an awkward teenage girl with telekinetic powers whose lonely life is dominated by an oppressive religious fanatic mother.  When she is humiliated by classmates at the high school prom, she wreaks havoc on everyone and everything in her path.  A chilling blend of music, magic and terror!  If The Exorcist made you shudder, Carrie will make you scream!  A perfect show for the Halloween season at the Abbeville Opera House!

February 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28 - 2015

Another Agatha Christie classic comes to the Abbeville Opera House stage.  Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for their bored diplomatic circle.  When a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with, especially as she suspects the murderer might be her young stepdaughter, Pippa.  Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry's first marriage!  Clarissa's fast talking places her in some hair raising experiences, as she comes to learn that the facts are much more terrifying than fiction.  This is Agatha Christie at her best!  Don't miss it!

March 20, 21, 27 and 28 - 2015

"Two cops.  three crooks.  Eight doors.  Go."  In an economy motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant.  In the room next door, two undercover cops are supposed to catch the meeting on videotape.  But there's some confusion as to who's occupying which room, who's watching the video, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. One of the funniest comedies to come along in a long while.

April 10, 11, 17 and 18 - 2015

Ken Ludwig has adapted the story from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.  Winner of the 2009 AATE Distinguished Play Award.  "Five Stars!  Yo-ho-ho!  A festive treat to treasure.     X marks the spot of a bona-fide classic treat!"  Treasure Island is the answer to everyone's adventure-starved prayers: a racy, pacy, tough-as-old-boots adaptation of the swashbuckling classic yarn of piracy on the tropical seas.  At the center of it all are Jim Hawkins, a 14 year old boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, who is a complex study of good and evil, perhaps the most famous hero-villain of all time.  A wonderfully classic way to bring the 106th Winter Season to a close.  You don't want to miss this one!
