Mary, Mary by Jean Kerr and directed by Kymberly Mellen, opens June 25 and runs through June 30 in the Hicklin Studio Theatre. Recently divorced, the wisecracking cynic Mary and infuriatingly sensible Bob meet at his apartment in the hope of avoiding an audit by the IRS. When a snowstorm forces Mary to spend the night, the following morning proves interesting as mutual friend and lawyer Oscar, Hollywood heartthrob and neighbor Dirk Winston, and Bob’s considerably younger fiancée Tiffany arrive. Mary, Mary is a rollicking ride through marriage, divorce, taxes, and sex.

Blythe Spirit, by Noel Coward and directed by Bruce Cohen runs July 16 through 21 in the Hicklin Studio Theatre. Successful writer Charles Condomine, in researching the occult for his next novel, enlists the aid of Madame Arcati to conjure a séance at a small dinner party. To everyone’s surprise she successfully brings back the spirit of his ex-wife Elvira, who sets out to ruin Charles’ and his current wife Ruth’s happy home.  Ruth is accidentally killed and joins Elvira in otherworldly mischief, haunting the hapless Charles.
