Director, Patricia Hoefler, will have a free pre-show chat at 1:45 pm on Sunday, March 13th.


Following the opening night of the Timberly Troupers’ musical about undertakers, Dorothy and her slightly daft husband, Charlie, host a gathering of actors and friends at their home. It’s a chic opening night party with a guest list that includes Nathan (a recently divorced high school teacher who is also a very bad ventriloquist), Wayne (better at loving than acting), Jennifer (who has a sure shot at Hollywood stardom), Ernie (one of the Troupers’ actors who is filled with ham and spite), Irene (his out-of-patience wife), Mona (who was in love with Wayne but has since moved on) and Paul (a well-known drama critic and friend of Dorothy’s who has just broken his rule of never reviewing community theater). When Paul’s unpublished review is unexpectedly revealed, the party becomes the setting where the dreams, loves, failures and successes of this group are explored with bittersweet humor and the relationship between risk and need is touchingly depicted. Contains adult language and sexual references.


Tickets are on sale as of February 7th, 2022. You may purchase tickets online at or by phone at (716) 687-6727.
