by Douglas Carter Beane

Meet gossip columnists Mr. and Mrs. Fitch. When the social circuit no longer provides juicy morsels, when the pressure to create news in our never-ending news cycle becomes just a bit much, it’s time to toss back the martinis, toss around the bon mots and realize that great celebrity can just appear out of thin air. This wicked, urbane comedy is a scathing look at who is in, who is out, and who may not even exist at all.

Directed by Mark Phillips Schwamberger and starring Columbus’ own Ken Erney as Mr. Fitch and Catherine Cryan as Mrs. Fitch.

Yank! The Musical  Book and lyrics by David Zellnik, Music by Joseph Zellnik 

Explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.  Suffused with songs (swing, big band, boogie-woogie) it explores what stories get told in wartime, and how WWII became the great catalyst in bringing gay men and women 
together.  While all the characters are fictional, all of the situations and viewpoints come directly from memoirs and oral histories of gay and straight service members who took part in WWII.

July 8 - 18
The Temperamentals by Jon Marans
"Temperamentals" was a code for homosexuals in the early 1950's, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate.  It tells the story of two men- the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich- as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization, along with Chuck Rowland, Bob Hull and Dale Jennings, in the pre-Stonewall United States.  It is a true story!  This production is presented in loving memory to Barbara Sokol.  

September 16 - 26
Sordid Lives by Del Shores
This comedy was nominated for over thirty awards during its long run in Los Angeles.  It puts a comic twist on a story of unconditional love, acceptance and "coming out' in a Texas family, as they converge for the matriarch's funeral.  Their lives intertwine, giving each a new perspective, honesty and meaning.  

November 11 - 21
Zanna Don't Book and lyrics by Tim Acito, additional lyrics by Alexander Dinelaris  

Welcome to Heartsville High, set in a world where everyone is gay...well almost everyone.  The big man on campus is the chess 
champion and the captain of the football team is made cool by being cast as the lead in the school musical.  The students write a controversial show called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" about straight people in the military, which becomes the catalyst for a young man and woman to fall in love.  Enter Zanna, a magical, musical fairy who, which a wave of his wand, brings true love to one and all.
