Upcoming Events at PIP

-DESSERT CABARET, September 22 & 23 (7 PM) and 24 (2:30 PM). Don Fleming is putting this cabaret together, and I know we’re going to have a great time.  The theme is “Classic Show Tunes” (although we may slip in a new song or two), so you can expect a lot of toe-tapping and singing-along songs.  Suggested Donation is only $8.00.  Also, if you can make a homemade dessert for us, please contact Kathie Fleming at kathie-fleming@att.net.

-ANNUAL MEETING: get this date on your calendar! Our Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10, at 6:00 PM.  Find out what the 2018 season will be, and enjoy a performance by the cast of our KTA entry. 

-NEW YORK CITY, June 2018 – We’re going to NYC next June!  There will be an informational meeting Thursday, September 7, at 6:00, on the Playhouse deck.  If you can’t make the meeting, but would still like some info, message Lisa with your mailing address and she will send a brochure to you.

Can murder possibly be funny? Only when three goofy bunglers give it their all. Paul and Arlene Miller's marriage is a bit, shall we say, on the rocks, and so she and her lover, Dr. Mitch Lavell, a dentist with lust and murder in his heart, conspire to do away with Paul. When that fails, Paul and Arlene plot to do away with Mitch, and when that fails, the boys scheme to take out Arlene. But don't worry, nobody gets hurt, except the audience, from laughing so hard! Don't miss the hilarious fun! Click "Show Details" below to view cast list
