October Is For Misery
The season kicks off in October with Misery, written by William Goldman and based on the novel by Stephen King. This show, which will take place October 7, 8, 14, and 15, 2023 is directed by Scott Painter and produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Misery follows successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by his "number one fan," Annie Wilkes, and wakes up captive in her secluded home. While Paul is convalescing, Annie forces him to write a new Misery Chastain novel, and he quickly realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go. The irate Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it ... and it does.

Just in time for the 2023 holiday season, Plaid Tidings, written by Stewart Ross with arrangements by James Raitt, will grace the Bucyrus Little Theatre stage December 1-3 and 8-10, 2023. Directed by Rick Walker and produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International, Inc., audiences will enjoy an exciting show featuring the best of Forever Plaid, the vocal quartet that comes back to life once a year - this time tied up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top! Filled with holiday standards that have all been "Plaid-erized," the boys are back to do their Christmas Special.
