The unholy drought is over. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) returns (now [revised]) after a (much too long) 14-year absence from our stage. The original “Bad Boys of Abridgment” squished all 37 plays plus a few sonnets to boot into a 90-minute time-lapse performance of Some of the Greatest Theatre of All Time. This season, Jobsite dusts off the Chuck Taylors, dons the doublets and delivers a fair number of pratfalls, terrible puns, mis-readings and madcap capers for this chaotic, comprehensive dash through The Bard’s greatest hits.

The Mousetrap

A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go.

TRANSFORM. OUT LOUD. The Odd Couple meets Thelma and Louise in this wickedly funny comedy. With a recent divorce and her son living across the country, 50-something Sharon posts a listing for a roommate to fill the empty space in her Iowa home. Enter Robyn, a fascinating woman who needs a place to hide and the chance to start over. Hell-bent on getting to know Robyn despite their differences, Sharon deploys her friendly Midwestern charm at full force. This comical mismatch leads to a surprising and touching friendship that cleverly navigates the rocky roads of change and examines what happens when the wheels come off.

SEATING AT 11AM, CURTAIN AT 1PM
Specific shows may vary, reservations required

When Audrina recently inherited the Lover’s Landing Hotel, she also inherited her Uncle Bubba and his various “activities” including some that appear to be illegal. Complications and hilarity ensue as Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe arrives to plan her daughter’s wedding and Bubba impersonates the hotel’s wedding planner Madame Coco. Will Audrina find happiness in the hotel known for sandy toes and salty kisses?

“Audiences howled with laughter throughout the premiere as unlikely pairings of guests and staff cavorted barefoot on the beach, dodged flying fish, a mop wielding receptionist and a jealous fiancé with one oar out of the water. With fast paced action, inventive physical comedy and crackling dialog Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses is an audience hit from start to finish.”
