Take a wildly entertaining trip through Alice’s looking glass to the beat of a hip-hopping soundtrack by Bill Francoeur. This silly adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass depicts the coming-of-age story with fun twists and music audiences of all ages will adore. You’ll recognize some of your favorite characters of Wonderland and meet dozens of new ones along Alice’s journey. As a pawn from the second square of the chessboard, Alice must travel to the eighth square to accomplish her goal of becoming a queen. Each step of her passage brings her face to face with new characters and adventures as well as celebrations when she achieves each aspiration. The lively stage action, zany dialogue, and eclectic mix of toe-tapping tunes will have your audiences grinning like a Cheshire cat!

Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody's Non-Denominational Universalist Church, where all faiths are welcome because we'll believe anything.

Emily has a big problem. Not only is she sent to bed just as she reaches the highest level of her new video game, but there’s a monster in her closet! It’s not just her imagination. Her friend Stephanie saw it, too. Suffering the teasing of her brother and his friends, Emily and Stephanie recruit some of their own friends to help capture the monster. What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean any harm — he only wants to play Emily’s new video game. He’s too scared of kids to even think about trying to frighten them. Murray’s boss, the Dream King, has heard about his goofing off on the job, and now Murray is on probation. Murray’s supervisor, fellow monster Wanda, is not happy with him either. After all, every monster knows that when a child is born, a monster is assigned to watch over her — not to play with her toys and especially not to get caught in the act! What will happen when Emily has all her friends over for a sleepover to try to capture Murray? Even with Emily’s friend Brain’s careful analysis and planning, the girls wind up trapping the Dream King and his secretary, Toady, instead of Murray. With other wonderfully entertaining characters like Sandy the Sandman and his dream weavers, the solution to Emily’s monster problem brings humor, a bit of ingenuity and a little magic to this charming and delightful family show.
Cotton Patch Gospel
July 23 - July 31, 2016
Saturday & Sundays @ 7:00 pm
This “Greatest Story Ever Retold” is based on the book The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan in which the Gospel is presented in a setting of rural Georgia with country music songs, the final and perhaps best work of Harry Chapin. As this Gospel begins, they sing that “Somethin’s a-brewin’ in Gainesville.” Herod is the mayor of Atlanta and, inevitably, Christ is lynched by local thugs only to rise again. Drama critics loved this show and so did a broad spectrum of religious commentators.

We all know that the real drama in a theatre takes place backstage and creates quite a comedy to watch!
This has never been more true than at Theatre Baroque, where the star, one-time matinee idol Burton Cavendish, suddenly dies an hour before the premiere of “Don Juan in Cleveland.”
Once it is discovered that Cavendish has passed away, Lou, the director, calls on Ajax, the understudy, to fill in. But Ajax must play Cavendish both on and off stage, and he can’t tell anyone — not even his own mother! It is to be the great star’s last performance... and Ajax’s greatest performance ever. He reluctantly agrees, only to face nasty critics, doting mothers and one very large goon sent to collect a bundle from the great actor. Ajax even has to fool his own mother, who shows up backstage to say hello to Ajax and meet the famous Cavendish! (Little does she know she achieves both of those goals at one time!) Lines and plot twists fly as fast as you’ll sell tickets in this theatrical farce where over-the-hill prima donnas reign — or think they do — and most of the rest of the cast is betting on who comes out on top.

"The Star on My Heart"
March 11 - 12, 2016
The Star on My Heart is an original play based on Holocaust survivor Inge Auerbacher's memoirs, adapted and directed by Angela Miloro-Hansen. In 2013 Angela won OCTA awards for a show she directed at Geauga Lyric Theater called I Never Saw Another Butterfly, by Celeste Raspanti. It told the story of the children imprisoned in the Theresienstadt (Terezin) concentration camp near Prague. Of fifteen thousand children who passed through Terezin, it is believed that approximately one hundred survived.
Then GLTG Executive director Chris Cipriani made contact with one of these child survivors, Inge Auerbacher.
Inge inspired the cast with a telephone conversation on opening night and a relationship with Dr. Auerbacher evolved. Inge expressed a desire to have her story staged, and Angela Miloro-Hansen was asked to author the script. Writer/Director Miloro-Hansen has been active in theater since 1999, and is a 2010 Hiram College graduate. She directs, teaches and acts on a regular basis and serves as the Educational Outreach Coordinator for Geauga Lyric Theater in Chardon, Ohio. Chris Cipriani, now Director of Programming at Shore Cultural Centre in Euclid, is serving as the project and educational outreach coordinator.
After two years of collaboration, The Star on My Heart premiered in November 2015. It tells of Inge's experiences during the war in Terezin, and her survival and recovery in New York City, where she still lives today.
After liberation, Inge came to America and spent two years in a tuberculosis hospital. She began high school with only one year of schooling under her belt, and graduated in three years. Inge worked as a chemist for 38 years. She now travels and speaks on the topics of tolerance, the Holocaust and human rights.
