Written by local playwright, Lisa Rowe, suspense and comedy abound in the fast-moving play, “Psych.” After many productions of her play “Psych,” Ms. Rowe’s work received the recognition it deserved and was picked up for professional licensing by Dramatic Publishing in December 2014.

“Psych” is set in the office of psychiatrist Dr. Robert Smith where, one by one, the cast of bizarre characters assemble. Edward Baxter was a successful psychiatrist, beloved by his many patients—until he was framed for murder. Now on the run with an assumed identity and a suspicious new wife, his luck is running out. Edward seeks help from Dr. Robert Smith, a fellow psychiatrist and a man with inner demons of his own. When Edward’s meeting with Dr. Smith goes wildly awry and leaves Edward clinging precariously to his last shred of sanity, Dr. Smith’s patient Lydia (a goodhearted psychic woman with clues to Edward’s past) arrives for her appointment to find Edward in big trouble. Despite the chaos created by unexpected visitors and quirks in Lydia’s psychic powers, Lydia does her best to gain Edward’s trust and help him find justice as his world rapidly approaches critical mass. Psych’s humor is broad in scope including slapstick, wordplay and a bit of dark humor.

Rehearsals will generally be Monday-Thursday with some Saturdays or Sundays. Show dates are August 21-23 & 28-30; 7:30 pm Fridays & Saturdays, 4:00 pm Sundays.

Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies!

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music, and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” tare slammed broadside by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end, that the story of Forever Plaid begins….

Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations, and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950′s.
