A brief summary of TWELFTH NIGHT:

Viola, separated from her twin Sebastian, dresses as a boy and works for the Duke Orsino, whom she falls in love with. Orsino is in love with the Countess Olivia, and sends Viola to court her for him, but Olivia falls for Viola instead. Sebastian arrives, causing a flood of mistaken identity, and marries Olivia. Viola then reveals she is a girl and marries Orsino.

While SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we advocate and encourage the need for responsible drinking and designated drivers. Furthermore, we require all players to have a designated driver for every performance.

By Lynn Nottage
 
In a new comedy from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Ruined, Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK is a seventy-year journey through the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career. When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.

Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien
 
One fateful night, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. Unfortunately, the night out is destined to be one they will never forget. A thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet and Frank ‘N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question themselves, each other, love and lust. A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock ‘n’ roll score, THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW is a hilarious, wild ride that Clarksville will not soon forget!

Audience participation is encouraged, and patrons are invited to dress up in their favorite Rocky Horror attire. Bags of props will also be available for $5 in the lobby one hour prior to performances. Outside props will not be permitted, as they may damage the theatre or injure actors and/or audience members.

Jerry Halliday with Twinky Boy

Comedian Jerry Halliday with Twinky Boy

[Mainstage]
 
7:30pm October 8
 
He’s out of the closet, out of control and out-rageous! Twinky Boy is “The World’s Gayest PUPPET with a hand stuck UP IT!”

No strings attached and no holds barred, Twinky Boy turns up the heat and burns down the house! He’s hilariously over-the-top and brought to astonishing life by skilled comedian-puppeteer Jerry Halliday, whose laugh-packed stage appearances have demolished audiences with comedy dynamite in such big-name hotel casinos as Bally’s, Rio, Harrah’s, Resorts and others in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, as well as comedy clubs, cabarets and theatres nationwide.

Twinky Boy travels the entertainment circuit with Halliday’s other madcap maniacs Granny Goodtimes, Sista Girl, and the Not-So-Holy Nun.

The critics are unanimous: The Las Vegas-Review Journal raves “Jerry Halliday gives a strong polished act with a lot of laughs, brisk barbs, rapid-fire repa comedy material.” The Reno Gazette said “Jerry Halliday pulls out all the stops, pausing only for laughs.” According to the Boston Globe, Jerry is “bawdily funny and not to be missed.” “A flaming good time!” says South Florida Gay News.

In addition to his casino and club performances, Halliday has long been a hit at resort venues in Key West, Fire Island, Russian River, Rehoboth Beach, Douglas Dunes and broke box office records in three ten-week summer seasons at one of the world’s crown jewels of vacation destinations, Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Book by James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
 
“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, INTO THE WOODS. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go to the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When The Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse, along the way meeting a host of characters including Little Red, the Wolf, Rapunzel, and two princes. By the end of the first act, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after… but in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways.
