 In the Theatre


The next Reader’s Theatre production will be Red Herring on September 28 & 29. Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It’s 1952: America’s on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower’s on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy’s on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor—or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.


Monte Mills and the Lucky Horseshoe Band •  Monte is an effervescent entertainer that will bring a smile to your face and rhythm to your feet. His family-friendly shows are energetic with a contagious country swing beat that compels you to get up and dance.  Monte’s personable, good-natured stage presence makes one and all, young and old, feel part of the show.  Do yourself a favor and catch this good-time cowboy singer in action. October 7 & 8 at 7:30 PM.
