Peninsula Players Theatre will perform five plays during its 89th season, which will take place from June 18 – Oct. 20, 2024.
The season will start with I Ought to Be in Pictures, performed June 18 – July 7. Written by Neil Simon in 1980, the play is a poignant comedy about a burned-out Hollywood screenwriter who reunites with his estranged teenage daughter after she hitchhikes across America to see him, hoping he’ll help launch her acting career.
Angel Next Door, a new comedy from The Outsider creator Paul Slade Smith, will make its Midwest debut July 10-28. Set in 1948, the play follows a mansion full of playwrights, actors and a starstruck young writer trying to create a show, as well as a housekeeper who wants them all to leave.
Hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet will be performed July 31 – Aug. 18. T was inspired by the twist of fate that brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis together for an incredible jam session at Sun Records recording studio.
Next up is Mary’s Wedding, performed Aug. 21 – Sept. 1. The award-winning play follows two lovers who stay connected through letters and dreams, searching for a place where the war that separated them can’t find them.
The season comes to a close with The Stranger, a recently-discovered psychological thriller by Agatha Christie that will be performed Sept. 4 – Oct. 20. The story follows Enid, who’s questioning her seven-year engagement, and Gerald Strange, who may be the man to sweep her off her feet.
