The setting is a charming house in the English countryside, where writer Howard Holt is visited each weekend by his wife, who is also his publisher. During the week, he is joined by his mistress - a fact of which his wife is well aware. As the action begins, the departing mistress is (apparently) run over and killed by the wife, and Howard gallantly offers to dispose of the body. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.

Jan. 21 - Feb.15, 2015


Written by Peter Shaffer & Directed by Bob La Salle

Lettice Duffet is an expert on Elizabethian cuisine and Medieval weaponry and overly enthusiastic about history and theatre. She is a tour guide at Fustian House, and when she begins to embellish its historical past in her lectures and stray from the facts, Lotte Schon, an inspector from the Preservation Trust, must fire her. But what happens between these two is a revelation. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.

“Banjo and Guitar”

Following a recent performance by Hall of Famer, Tim Allan, a New York music critic, well known for his less than kind critiques, turned the tables and flatly stated: “I know of no musician today who possesses a broader repertoire or who uses his musical knowledge to better advantage. From classics to country, Tim Allan's work is extraordinary."

With a natural proficiency on guitar, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele, along with his smooth baritone vocals in a seemingly inexhaustible supply of popular standards, Tim has enjoyed engagements on television, cruise ships, at top hotels and in concert venues around the world. To see a video demo of his performance please visit his web site at www.timallan.com. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.

“Salutes The Great American Songbook”

As the lead vocalist with The Hillside Singers, Lorri Hafer wanted to 'teach the world to sing in perfect harmony'. When she met fellow musician Mike Hafer in 1981, it was love at first sight and they were married six months later. Lorri was the featured vocalist with The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Les Brown's Band Of Renown and special guest vocalist with Buddy Morrow and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. 

During the past decade, Lorri (vocalist), Mike (piano), Paul Hafer (bass) and Dave Dunscombe (drums) performed on "Music Of Your Life" Big Band and Jazz cruises throughout the Caribbean and in Europe . They have also performed for The Melbourne Arts Festival, The Jazz Club Of Sarasota, The South County Jazz Society, The Space Coast Jazz Society, and The Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Society, among others. We are now fortunate to have them appear on our stage at Lemon Bay Playhouse. To see a video demo of their performance please visit their web site at www.lorrihafer.com. Reserved seat tickets are $18.00 each.
