Happy State Bank Studio Theatre

Who decides who is capable of raising a child? Upon meeting Peter and Karlie, veteran social worker Caroline is caught up in an all too familiar tale of neglect and she will do whatever it takes to protect baby Luna, their six month old daughter. Upon placing Luna in the care of Karlie’s mother, Caroline realizes there is more to this family and she must do whatever she can to protect this child. Luna Gale contains adult themes and content, and is not recommended for children.

WT Theatre presents "Much Ado About Nothingl"
Happy State Bank Studio Theatre
7:30 P.M., 2:30 P.M. on November 12 & 19
The joys and pitfalls of love are hilariously and poignantly explored in Shakespeare’s great romantic comedy! Don Pedro and his men return home from war to the lush estate of Leonato, governor of Messina, whose daughter Hero is in love with Claudio, one of the valiant heroes of the war. Don Pedro encourages and assists Claudio in wooing Hero, but also in tricking his obstinate friend Benedick into falling in love with Leonato’s equally obstinate niece Beatrice, neither of whom can stand each other! Hearts are stolen and broken and put back together, but as the title suggests, when the heart is involved, there is often Much Ado About Nothing!

WT Theatre presents "A Flea in Her Ear"
1900 Paris sets the scene for one of the greatest French farces of all times. Raymonde Chandebise suspects that her husband, Victor, is having an affair. With the assistance of her friend Lucienne the two women write an anonymous love letter to Victor suggesting a rendezvous at the Frisky Puss Hotel. From the moment Victor receives the letter, the characters become tangled in misunderstandings, mistaken identities, jealousy and temptations as they head toward a fast paced, laughter filled conclusion.

WT Theatre presents "9 to 5: The Musical"
9 to 5: The Musical, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie and features an upbeat score by Dolly Parton. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thoughtprovoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.
