February 27 & 28, March 1 at 8pm
March 6 & 7 at 8pm
March 8 at 2pm

Tickets are free, but reservations are recommended. To make a reservation, email us at or call us at (716) 888-7824

Three acts, 10 minute intermission between each act, doors open a half hour before listed showtime.

Free gala and cast meet-and-greet after each performance outside the theatre.

The action of the play occurs in an English industrial city, where a young girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable British family is subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death. An inspector calls to interrogate the family, and during the course of his questioning, all members of the group are implicated lightly or deeply in the girl’s undoing. Containing an unexpected plot twist in the end, this drama will keep you on the edge of your seat in all three acts.

Gerald Croft – Conor Shea
Inspector Goole – Benjamin Caldwell

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Hey Little Theatre! That time of year has arrived once again! SHAKESPEARE AUDITIONS!

This years show will be A Midsummer Night’s Dream and will be directed by our Artist in Residence, Eileen Dugan. Around the time of the marriage of the Duke of Athens, A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of four young lovers and a theatre troupe whose lives are manipulated  by a group of mischievous faeries who reside in the middle of the woods. Categorized as a comedy and one of Shakespeare’s most popular works, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will promise laughs and a story for the whole audience to enjoy.

Auditions will be Tuesday,  September 24 from 4:30 to 7:30 and Wednesday, September 25 from 6 to 9 in the Frisch Conference room.

Auditions will be a cold read. You will be given a few pages of the script, and after a few minutes to read them over, you and everyone in your scene will be called in to read for the director. You will also be required to fill out a quick form beforehand.

If you are interested in Production Staff, please stop by the club room during audition time to fill out a Prod Staff form.

Good luck to all you thespians, faeries, lovers and dukes! Break a…wing!!
