Sweet Charity explores the turbulent love life of Charity Hope Valentine,
a hopelessly romantic but comically unfortunate dance hall hostess in
New York City. With a tuneful, groovy, mid-1960s score by Cy Coleman,
sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and a hilarious book by Neil Simon, Sweet Charity captures all the energy, humor, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist. Musical numbers include: “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This,” “I’m a Brass Band” and “Baby, Dream Your Dream.”

February 16 at 2:00 p.m

Directed by Vicky Sandin

In 1985, Neil Simon revised his multi-Tony Award nominated play, The Odd Couple, for a female cast.  In place of the poker party that begins the original version, Olive Madison invites Florence Unger and the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit.  The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the Costazuela brothers.  But the hilarity remains the same in this contemporary comic classic.

The Odd Couple, Female Version is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

May 1 & 2 at 7:30 p.m. and
May 3 at 2:00 p.m.

Directed by John Conlon

It’s the 1960’s, and newlywed lovebirds Corie and Paul behold their first home – a tiny 5th floor walk-up in a crumbling Manhattan brownstone. Corie, a free-spirited optimist, is excited by its possibilities. Paul, an uptight young lawyer, sees only its flaws – like the hole in the skylight and leaky closet.

When Corie’s straight-laced mother makes an unannounced visit, Corie arranges a blind date for her with their quirky, bohemian neighbor. Chaos and comedy ensue because while opposites may attract, adjustments may be needed to keep them together!

Barefoot in the Park is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

The Players present a one-act Neil Simon comedy at Concord’s Hatbox Theatre! Six people are invited to dine at a first rate restaurant in Paris. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking
suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives. “Frequently hilarious but also dangerously serious … An invitation you’ll be glad you accepted.” – New York Post

Tickets now on sale now thru the Hatbox Theatre!
