Come Blow Your Horn
Come Blow your Horn
by Neil Simon, directed by Misty Baptiste
July 16 - August 8, 2015

Twenty-one year old Buddy Baker has left home and arrives unannounced at the luxurious Manhattan apartment of his older brother, Alan, a swinging, womanizing bachelor who prefers his carefree life to working in the family business. Alan is only too happy to mentor his brother in the ways of the world, but as Buddy turns into a ladies' man himself, Alan discovers real feelings for one of the many women with whom he is currently seeing and has to rethink his life choices to keep her. This farcical 60s romp was Neil Simon's first Broadway comedy hit!

Cactus Flower

Cactus Flower
by Abe Burrows, directed by Frances C. Seman
Sept. 10 - October 3, 2015

Julian, a philandering dentist, keeps his many affairs at bay by claiming to be married with children. When he falls for his girlfriend Toni and proposes, she wants to make sure his marriage is really over and Julian must produce a "wife." He recruits his prickly nurse Stephanie to pose as his wife, with hilarious results. This Broadway hit later became a successful film starring Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman, and Goldie Hawn, winning her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

Ok, NOW for the
2015 - 2016 Season


Towards Zero - Agatha Christie
Mystery


directed by Carol M. Rice, October 22 - November 14, 2015
Neville Strange insists it won’t be a problem for his ex-wife Audrey to visit Lady Tressilian at the same time as he and his new wife Kay, but tensions are understandably high from the start. When Lady Tressilian is brutally murdered, Inspector Battle is on the case to solve the crime. Dame Agatha at her finest!


Four Weddings and an Elvis - Nancy Frick
Comedy


directed by Matt Stepan, January 7-30, 2016
Anything can happen in a wedding chapel in Las Vegas...and does! From a couple getting married by the King himself as revenge on their exes, to arrogant, aging stars tying the knot as a publicity stunt, to a ceremony that really needs to happen before the police arrive, to the nuptials of the wedding chapel owner herself, what happens in Vegas...is hilarious!


A Valentine Murder Mystery
Dinner Mystery


Saturday, February 13, 2016
Somebody in the Rover family will be murdered, and it will be up to the audience to help us solve the crime. Last year’s event sold out in less than a week, so mark your calendar now! (BONUS! Not included in the season.)


Rocket Man - Steven Dietz
Serious Comedy


directed by Jason Rice, February 25 - March 19, 2016
Somewhere in the universe is a place where all the roads we never chose converge. Donny is so determined to find this parallel world he has placed everything he owns on his front lawn with a sign that reads: “Here's my life. Make an offer.” Will he find what he’s looking for?


When Did You Last See Your Trousers?
- Ray Galton and John Antrobus
Farce


directed by Andi Allen, March 31 - April 23, 2016
While Howard and Penny are asleep, a burglar climbs through the window and steals Howard's suit. How is he supposed to make it back to the suburbs to his wife in his underwear? Add to this a punk with rainbow colored hair, a flasher, and a singing telegram Gorilla and you have the ingredients for an outrageous farce!


365 Women a Year Festival
Variety / Festival


May 5-14, 2016
Rover again partners with international playwriting coalition, 365 Women A Year, to present short plays about historical women by area playwrights. The project’s focus is to write plays about extraordinary women in past and present history, bring women back into the social consciousness, and plant seeds of herstory around the country.


Crisis - Larry Herold
World Premiere Comedy


directed by Paul McKenzie, May 26 - June 18, 2016
When a corporation screws up - like, for instance, when the CEO is seen doing questionable things in a viral YouTube video - they bring in a crisis expert. Someone to circle the wagons. Handle the media. Control the panic. That would be Margot Euston. All she needs is for CEO Jack Carville to be completely honest. But honesty is not a part of Jack's business plan.


10-Minute Play Festival
Variety / Festival


June 30 - July 9, 2016
Join us for the winners in our second annual 10-minute comedy contest! Funny stuff from playwrights all over the world!

Comedy


directed by Frances Seman, July 21 - August 13, 2016
Two total strangers have eloped after an ecstatic first meeting at a bungee jump, but neither suspects a future with terrifying roommates, unbreakable leases, an internet stalker, an ex-boyfriend, and nomadic bouncing between two extreme households.
Rover SECONDS Play Contest Winner!


One Day Only 26
Variety / Festival


Saturday, August 27, 2016

Kong’s Night Out - Jack Neary
Farce


directed by Carol M. Rice, September 8 - October 1, 2016
This is the story of what happened in the hotel room next to the hotel room where Fay Wray was whisked out into the Manhattan night by King Kong. There's always a backstory, and in this case, it’s a door-slamming farce meticulously coordinated with the events depicted in the classic 1933 movie.


Think Twice - Ayn Rand
Mystery


directed by Lindsey Humphries, October 20 - November 12, 2016
A seemingly altruistic man uses his brilliant ideas to gain power and control over everyone in his life, giving all of them compelling motives for his murder. Just keep in mind that you’ll have to “think twice” when deciding who you think did it!
