Announcing the second show of our Melodrama Season!

"Zartan, the Mysterious White Jungle Cat" or "Beware of Hairless Monkeys Bearing Wits" by Denise Ruemping, playing Fri/Sat/Sun July 11 - July 27, 2014.

While on an archeological expedition in the jungle of Africa, the Goodwicks encounter a mysterious jungle girl who appears to have grown up in the wild. As their crazy adventure ensues, they are soon to discover that their guide is running from a tainted past and the hunter they have hired to protect them has a few secrets of his own!

Adult tickets are $9 and reduced rate tickets are $8. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows play at 2:00 p.m.

If you saw our first show, you'll find this one to be somewhat less "traditional," but still with all the elements our our traditional melodramas. If you missed our first show (Sigh!), you'll still find this one to be somewhat less "traditional," but we promise you'll enjoy it all the more!





Please consider joining our cast for this year's rendition of "All Hallows Feast," our interactive murder mystery dinner theatre production of "Murder at Cafe Noir." The show plays in October, but auditions will be held July 13 and July 20 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mantorville Opera House.

If you are unable to come either evening, please send us an email prior to July 18 so we can try to make other arrangements for your audition.
