Moon Over Buffalo

A hilarious comedy set in the early 1950's in Buffalo, New York. The play centers on an older married couple given one last shot at real stardom - a big movie director is coming to town to see their matinee performance and if he likes what he sees they could be cast in an upcoming major motion picture. And this is when the fun really starts - anything that could go wrong does go wrong - from the husband's dalliance with a young actress, to their daughter's clueless fiance, to their deaf old stage manager mother who hates her son-in-law more than anything. All these mishaps will make you cry with laughter as the antics unfold. All four performances were completely sold-out.

The true stories of six courageous women sent to Vietnam and their struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and a nation that shunned them.

Saybrook Stage Company performs You Can't Take It With You

You Can’t Take It With You is a hilarious comedy that celebrates non–conformity! It started with the grandfather quitting his job in the competitive business world decades ago because he was unhappy. He now spends his days catching and raising snakes, watching graduation ceremonies and doing anything else that gives him enjoyment. The other members of the household are just as eccentric from making illegal fireworks in the basement, a candy-selling ballerina, and a toga-wearing deliveryman to name just a few.
