July 13:  For the Love of Juliet by Luigi Jannuzzi

A romantic comedy in which the leading lady chooses an imaginary man over a real man. A tribute to theatre and the women in it! Julie has dedicated herself to a muse named Romeo who is grooming Julie for a Broadway debut as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. Alex, the irresponsible love of Julie’s life, returns from a five-year voyage to find himself and now he wants to recapture Julie’s heart. To the muse’s opposition, Julie goes on a date, and her heart is torn between Alex’s apparent love for her and the muse who is always around commenting on Alex’s every word. Oh, by the way, Alex also has a muse-in-training named Ginger, who not only needs a lot of attention, but keeps distracting Romeo because she likes Romeo. Will Julie choose the imaginary man or the real man? And are imaginary men more helpful and fun? Ages 14 and up

July 14 Twain by the Tale by Mark Twain, Dennis Snee, Gregg Saeger

In this two act revue of Mark Twain Stories, Sketches, and Monologues, the wit and timeless perceptions of America’s greatest humorist are celebrated. Twain’s talent for documenting the chronic and comic weaknesses of human nature is the focus of this easily stageable show. Sprinkled through the show are Twain’s unreserved thoughts on friendship, vice, good breeding, the origin of the species, as well as appearances by the author himself. Twain once advised the news media, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” Audiences and performers will echo that sentiment after enjoying this bright sampler of material from his work. Suitable for All Ages

July 15 LOVE/SICK by John Cariani 

A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s LOVE/SICK is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, this play is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.
