About the show:

When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, thirty-five-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady, in the history of the Soady family, to have never bagged a buck – which makes him jinxed in the eyes of the community. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, author and native Michigan playwright Jeff Daniels, spins a hilarious tale of humor and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.

About the show!

It's Dad's turn to tell his three rambunctious kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy on the details, the classics get creative: a prince with a snoring problem spices up The Princess and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that pesky gold into straw. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Dad tells them!

God of Carnage 

by Yasmina Reza ; Christopher Hampton, translator

2009 Tony Award® winner for Best Play!

Directed by Bruce and Julie Michel

A comedy about manners without the manners.

June 7-16, 2024

(possible extension June 21-23)


Inchai Reed  - Kevin Rogers  - Sean Sabo - Libby Swor  

GOD OF CARNAGE is a razor-sharp comedy centered on parental differences. A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings two sets of parents together to resolve the matter. A polite discussion of childrearing soon escalates into verbal warfare, with all four parents revealing their true colors. There is a certain deliciousness in seeing these characters unravel as the two couples are locked in passive aggressive combat. None of them will escape the carnage.

All shows are Friday and Saturdays 7:30pm Sunday 3pm

Reserved Seating tickets are $35 (plus $2 convenience fee).

Doors open 30 min. prior to the performance

Groups of 10 or more? Save $2 per tickets by calling Lynn to make your reservation at 810 923.7705
