“Places, everyone! World War II is over, New York is booming, and alcoholic playwright TENNESSEE WHISKEY is making his Broadway debut. After aging actress FAYE DINAWAY is deemed too old for her role, struggling deli waitress MEGAN ITBIG gets her chance to audition. But when America’s sweetheart and ditzy pageant queen AMBER WAVESOFGRAIN lands the lead, Megan teams up with Faye to reclaim the spotlight. Will hunky sailor SAL PACIFIC find his first mate, or will he stay at half mast? Will cranky Southern matron AUNTIE BELLUM learn to accept the “alternative lifestyle” of her nephew Tennessee? Will Shakespearean director TOBY ORNOTTOBE realize his vision, or will it turn into a comedy of errors? Can no-nonsense taxi driver HAILEY CAB learn that all’s fare in love and war? Will it ever be explained why RICKEY RAT can talk? Catch these dames putting the broad in Broadway in HPT 170!”

This year’s writers are Shaun Gohel ’18 & Mike Skerrett ’18.

King’s Chapel Christmas Concert

As in years past, we will again be returning to King’s Chapel for one of their annual Christmas concerts. This year the concert will take place on Tuesday, December 19th. We will meet at King’s Chapel downtown on the corner of Tremont and School Streets at 12:00 Noon on the 19th, and the half hour concert will begin at 12:15 PM. They will be performing Handel’s “The Half-Hour Messiah”. After the concert we will have lunch somewhere in the immediate vicinity of the chapel and we can decide where that will be at the time. The place doesn’t matter as much as just being together to share the Christmas spirit. Many of you have been with us before for this cherished event and we hope that some of the new members can join us this time for the joy of the concert and the pleasure of our splendid company at this once a year holiday celebration. For more information on King’s Chapel, and their concerts, see kings-chapel.org.
