Fulton Community Theatre is proud to announce it’s 28th season with a line
up of sure to please shows for the 2018 season! FCT has entered into a new
relationship with the Fulton Polish Home, and will be performing many of their
shows in this wonderful new venue. FCT will be starting off this season with a
dinner theatre offering. Michael Bolio will be directing a classic comedy penned
by Larry Shue. “The Nerd” tells the story of Willum Cubbert, and architect from
Terre Haute, Indiana, whose Lady love is about to leave and take on a new Job.
Although urged to join her by his Friend Axel, Willum is reluctant to leave the
comfy confines of home. Then a stranger from Willum’s past arrives, and gives
him a new dilemna to figure out. What will he do? Find our February 17th,18th,
24th and 25th at The Polish Home.
Coming up in April will be the delightful Musical “Swingtime Canteen”, directed
by Dana Jane Thomas. This show will also be performed at The Polish Home
as a Dinner Theatre. It’s London, 1944. Join MGM star Marian Ames and her
all-girl band from the Hollywood Canteen for the rip-roaringest canteen show of
them all. After 17 years with MGM, still-glamorous movie legend Marian Ames
has endured four flop films in a row and is being put out to pasture. But not til
she heads to London with her all girl band to perform for our troops. This show
is sure to be a good time for everyone when it opens on April 27th, with shows on
the 28th and 29th , as well as May 4th , 5th , and 6th.
June brings FCT back to the Fulton Ed Center with a production of “Arsenic and
Old Lace”. A timeless classic that has filled theater’s with laughter many times
over the years. Writer and notorious marriage detractor Mortimer Brewster
falls for girl-next-door Elaine Harper, and they tie the knot on Halloween.
When the newlyweds return to their respective family homes to deliver the
news, Brewster finds a corpse hidden in a window seat. With his eccentric
aunts, disturbed uncle, and homicidal brother, he starts to realize that his
family is even crazier than he thought. Under the guidance of first time
Director Kevin Colvin, we are sure you will be entertained. Performances will be
June 23th , 24th , 29th , and 30th.
Who doesn’t love a little Christmas in July? Well FCT is answering that call by
presenting “Scrooge in Rouge” on July 27, and 28th at The Polish Home. The
play is set in a raggedy theatre in England where the 20-member cast of “A
Christmas Carol” has fallen victim to food poisoning the night before their
performance. But as we all know “the show must go on” so the three remaining
cast members unaffected by illness work hard to deliver a stellar show . All the
joy of the Holiday Season in the Middle of July!
In October we will once again team up with our High School Drama Club,
Quirk’s Players, to present a little something scary just in time for Halloween.
Although the scripts haven’t been decided on at this time, we can assure that it
will be a “scream”!
November, once again, brings around another of our long-time favorites as we
bring you “An Evening on Broadway”! The theme of this seasons presentation is
“Drawn to Broadway” as we present music from all the shows on Broadway
inspired by either a comic strip or animation. Certainly you will hear songs from
“Lil’ Abner”, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”, as well as a couple Disney
favorites that made their way from movie theaters to The Great White way!
Our final Offering next year ends on a somber note, as we present “The Women
of Lockerbie” at the Fulton Ed Center on December 7th , 8th 14th , 15th which tells
the tale of a mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland,
looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She
meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain
the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. This show is being
presented in honor of those who lost their lives in that tragedy.
We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at one or more of our
upcoming shows.
