As the play begins, an old hobo named Poppy by his avid companion, young Davey Quinn, is telling a tall tale. It is the early 1890s and itinerant story tellers like Poppy are the voices of the prairie. Years later, Davey is discovered by a radio entrepreneur while he is telling stories about Poppy and Frankie, a blind girl he rescued from a cruel father. Quinn becomes famous on radio as the Voice of the Prairie. Frankie reenters his life, and the FCC threatens them all for broadcasting without a license.

From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

April 9, 16, 23 at 2pm

An original musical based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel begs the question—can you tell the monster from the man? The show opens in the Villa Diodati a summer rental of Lord Byron. On a stormy night Mary Godwin (Shelley) is among a party of Romance era poets and physicians telling stories to pass the time. This brilliant new work tells of the grief that motivates Victor Frankenstein’s work and of the despair and isolation that brings revenge from his creation. Los Angeles based author and composer Carol Weiss will collaborate with the creative artists of the Sopris Theatre Company to bring this original musical to life.
