2018-2019 Season

Almost, Maine

by John Cariani


October 26, 27, November 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 8:00 pm

October 28 & November 4 at 3:00 pm

A place that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States. It's almost in Canada. And it's not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn't exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful piece. Described by the author, John Cariani, as "a Midwinter Night's Dream", the play is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism thrown in to each.

[title of show]

by Music & Lyrics by Jeff Bowen, Book by Hunter Bell


March 29, 30, April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 8:00 pm

March 31 & April 7 at 3:00 pm

Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry on the eighty-eights. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival's deadline and dream about the show changing their lives. [title of show]—taken from the space on the festival's application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of collaboration. The musical received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

The Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde


June 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8:00 pm

June 9 & 16 at 3:00 pm

The Importance Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, makes a welcome return to the Goshen stage in this wonderfully witty, deliciously decadent and classic play. Jack wishes to marry Algernon's cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station. Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde's much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags.
