June 5, 2014: Shunned, by Larry Parr chronicles the struggle of an Amish teen to find his place in the world. Levi Yoder discovers theatre quite by accident. He loves it, yet it goes against everything in his Amish upbringing. Temptations come in many forms for Amish youth, and Levi must decide, in this realistic portrait of Amish life and philosophy, the best way to serve God. Co-winner of ScriptFest 2012.
June 26, 2014: The Stardust Supper Club, Co-written by Alan Bailey (Smoke on the Mountain) and Mark Cabaniss is the funny and deeply felt story of two of Great American Songwriter Hoagy Carmichael’s closest friends, now a longtime married couple who run a small nightclub (located in an Indiana town), as they find themselves examining their own lives in contrast to Hoagy’s huge success. On the night of the 1952 Academy Awards radio broadcast, Hoagy’s friends put on their biggest show in years – only to watch it fall apart in ways both hilarious and heartbreaking as the tensions and jealousies of a lifetime play out onstage. In the vein of Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Forever Plaid, The Stardust Supper Club features some of the biggest hits of this quintessentially American composer, including “Georgia on My Mind,” “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening”, “Skylark,” “Two Sleepy People,” and the immortal “Stardust.”
July 17, 2014: Promises, by Joel Williams. Joseph, a 67-year-old man sets out on a journey to fulfill a request made by his dying mother and comes to understand the truth of his own personal history. Letters and artifacts that once belonged to his parents instigate flashback episodes that reveal complex relationships and secrets that were hidden from Joseph for most of his life. His father loved two women. One gave him life; the other raised him as her own. The play deals with love, loss, betrayal, reconciliation and promises both kept and broken.
August 7, 2014: Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming Written by Connie Ray Conceived by Alan Bailey, Musical Arrangements by Mike Craver. It's October, 1945, and the gospel-singing Sanders Family is back together again. The war is over and America's years of prosperity are just beginning. But there's another kind of rite of passage at Mount Pleasant .
