Happy Birthday
Apr. 27—May 21, 2017 Written by Marc Camoletti Adapted by Beverly Cross

Wives, mistresses, and maids—oh my!

When infidelities and mistaken identities abound, it's a birthday party like no other in this French farce from the author of Boeing Boeing.

Happy Birthday was a long-running success in London and we are thrilled to present this new production starring real-life married couples Greg Wood & Susan Riley Stevens and Scott Greer & Jennifer Childs!

The Carols (previously titled The Holiday Show) Dec. 1—Dec. 31, 2016 Written by Jennifer Childs Honorary Producers Sharon & Jeff Weiss

It's Christmastime in 1943. War is raging on the other side of the Atlantic and, here at home, a group of neighbors gathers at the VFW to make the most of what they have. 1812's newest original comedy brings us an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady.  This 1812 original is a heartfelt and hopeful comedy with music that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.
