Jody and I watched the opening night performance of a "Spider's Web" (1954 play by crime writer Agatha Christie) and enjoyed ourselves a great deal. (Believe I spotted a picture of Dame Christie in t...he bookshelf on the stage.) If you are not planning on going to see the production, you should change those plans, IMMEDIATELY: Well done, folks, well done ("Why don't people don't believe me when I tell the truth")! See More

Sets are always outstanding and the shows they choose to stage are, mostly, shows you won't get to see anywhere else.
They always put on great entertainment. Recommend Highly

I've never been disappointed in the shows at Center Stage. Very creative people use every bit of the small stage to present quality entertainment. The talent is there! Not a bad seat in the house. ... It helps to carpool as parking a car is at a premium. Easily accessible, refreshments, and they do it all with Volunteers. You don't have to drive to the big city to get a quality show. See More

Comic fireworks explode in FARCE OF HABIT, an absurdly funny Southern-fried romp that takes us back to the Reel ’Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. The proprietor, D. Gene Wilburn, is looking forward to a peaceful weekend on the lake. But there are only two chances of that happening: slim and none. Why, for example, has his wife, Wanelle, picked these three days to white-knuckle her way through caffeine withdrawal? Why is his son Ty’s marriage to Jenna fal...ling apart so fast? Could it have something to do with the French can-can costume Ty is wearing? How on earth would D. Gene’s feisty sister, Maxie, allow herself to get caught up in such a bizarre undercover police assignment? And that’s just his family. If this isn’t enough to thwart D. Gene’s weekend plans, he’s got a gaggle of nuns who’ve converged on the Inn, hell-bent on experiencing a nature retreat—which might be tolerable if D. Gene didn’t have a chronic fear of anything in a habit. Add to this the presence of Jock McNair, a nationally known relationship guru whose colossal ego threatens everyone’s sanity; a shy retiree anxious to cut loose and embrace his “inner caveman” and a couple of wild women who may or may not be who they claim to be. Throw in the storm of the century that’s fast bearing down on Mayhew, Arkansas, and D. Gene has no prayer of baiting a hook any time soon. Oh, and did we mention there’s an axe murderer on the loose? If you enjoy gloriously preposterous hilarity, then laughing your way through the take-no-prisoners lunacy of a Jones Hope Wooten comedy is one habit you’ll never want to break!

Meet The Cast:
Cheryl Fesmire, Director
Cheryl is excited to be working again at Center Stage Community Theatre. Snake in the Grass by Alan Ayckbourn has been challenging fun for cast and crew alike. The themes explored, the unusual set, and a great cast and crew have made this a very good experience. Look forward to seeing you there.
