Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep people from taking away an erratic, 200-pound chimpanzee. At the center of this hilarious and heart-wrenching play are two individuals fighting against a world unable to understand their love: Trevor, a chimpanzee who once performed in commercials, and his owner Sandra, who swears he would never hurt a fly… at least not on purpose. A moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity.

Suggested for audiences ages 13 and older.

In the Spotlight

New Season! Announcing 2017-18 Lineup!

Curtain Players shines its spotlight on playwrights for the 2017-18 season, beginning with a first-ever production of a new unpublished script followed by five favorite titles by leading writers for the theatre.

Tickets for the community theatre's Season 55 will go on sale this summer (date to be announced) with no increase in prices for season subscriptions, flex passes, or individual tickets.

Wendy Darling by Ira Hauptman  A brand new play receiving its first fully staged production. In this darkly comic version of the Peter Pan story, Wendy’s mother sets in motion a journey that threatens to change her family forever.  Directed by Heather Schultz / September 8-24

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee  The award-winning iconic play, in which a middle-aged college professor and his wife invite into their home an unwitting younger couple for drinks after a late-night faculty party. The resulting evening is a wicked jumble of mind games, attempted seductions, and shattering revelations.  Directed by Michael Day / October 20-November 5

Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley  In the Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy, three eccentric Southern sisters come together after one shoots her husband, exposing their unique quirks, longings, and regrets as each comes to terms with the consequences of her own “crime of the heart.”  Directed by Sarah Merkey / December 1-17

Lettice and Lovage by Peter Shaffer  A warm and charming comedy from the author of Amadeus and Equus about a flamboyant tour guide consigned to the “dullest castle in England” who embellishes its history until she is confronted by her fact-conscious boss.  Directed by Hal Houston / February 9-25

The Trip to Bountiful by Horton Foote  An aging widow runs away from her son and daughter-in-law and their cramped Houston apartment to realize her dearest dream: to return to her beloved hometown, Bountiful. What starts as an ordinary trip soon becomes an inspiring and life-changing journey of discovery.  Directed by James F. Petsche / March 23-April 8

Exit the King by Eugene Ionesco  In Ionesco’s most accessible Absurdist drama, it's King Berenger’s dying day and also the last day of the universe. Everything is falling apart – from his own palace to the very physics of the solar system. Will his commands to restore order be enough? Or will we fade into the mist?  Directed by Danielle Mari / May 4-20
