How do you know when you're happy, and can an accountant help? When Ava, a former therapist turned stay-at-home mom, and Paul, an accountant, begin discussing their lives and shared hobby, it starts to raise the suspicions of Ava's husband, Sam, and her best friend, Lisa. Paul's unexpected influence on Ava takes some surprising turns, but it may not be all that bad. Show dates are Sept. 15-17 and Sept. 21-23, 2023. Tickets go on sale Sept. 5, 2023.

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song.

A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it. Auditions for "All Is Calm" will be held Sunday, Sept. 17, 2023, 5:30 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for 10 to 14 males. Show dates are Nov. 10-12 and Nov. 16-18, 2023.
