The Ferris Wheel by Mary Miller

Will the Ladies Come to Order by N. M. Gibson

Directed by: Sally Peterson

Produced by: Andrea Mays

I know you will be delighted to see Dot Schuetze and Jim Burwell
back on stage together in Checkers. Lillian and Henry have been
together for 52 years and they enjoy playing checkers in their local
park. Let’s listen in on their conversation. They won’t mind.

Dorrie and John, meet when they share a seat in The Ferris Wheel.
They both have issues which come out when they get stuck at the
top of the wheel. Their conversation will endear them to you. Have
fun getting to know them.

Have you ever had a thought that you are very glad nobody else
knows about? Of course you have! In our third play, the four officers
of a ladies cultural league are not so lucky. Their alter-egos are also
at the meeting and are very happy to share their thoughts with you.
And you thought they were such nice ladies! After the meeting the
ladies have a surprise for us.
