Doubt: A Parable
by John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Celia Couture
November 20 – December 12
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm,
Sunday 11/29 at 3pm)
Sister Aloysius: Anne Damon
Father Flynn: Nick Bennett-Zendzian
Sister James: Jenn Shea
Mrs. Muller: Tonya Rabouin
One of the most riveting dramas ever written, Doubt poses a haunting question: What do you do when you're not sure? Set in a Bronx Catholic School in 1964, Father Brendan Flynn is an amiable new parish priest whose forward-thinking views clash with those of Sister Aloysius, the authoritative school principal, who comes to believe in possible misconduct between Father Flynn and a student.

Dead Man's Cell Phone
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Michelle Fisher
February 26– March 19
(Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, Sunday 3/13 at 3 pm)
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man's Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl, author of The Clean House and Eurydice. A work about how we memorialize the dead—and how that remembering changes us—it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world. We are looking for an ensemble that is collaborative in bringing this fantasy world--and the characters enmeshed in it—to life.
Audition dates: Sunday, November 29th and Wednesday December 2nd at 7pm

Acme Theater Productions
For more than 20 years, Acme has been an active part of the local community, providing high-quality productions to the public at a price that makes them accessible to everyone. We’re excited about our 2014-2015 offerings and delighted to continue to provide world-class theater to our patrons.
But we can’t do it without your help.
Our tickets sales and returning audience members let us know we are succeeding in the quality and diversity of the work we present. But we can’t do any of this without your support! Only about 50% of our operational costs are funded by ticket sales; the rest is covered by donations from people like you who recognize and appreciate the outstanding experience Acme provides at each and every show.
In spite of our limited resources, Acme has consistently been considered one of the top community theaters in the country and has been recognized internationally for the outstanding quality of its productions. We know you appreciate the exceptional work Acme does, and know how important it is to support and encourage our efforts.
I’m asking you to choose a donation level to show not just your encouragement for Acme Theater, but to show that the arts are an important and necessary part of life and our community. Whether $20, or $50, or $100 or more, your contribution matters and helps bring our shows to life.
Acme Theater is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization; 100% of the money received goes directly to the support of quality live theater. Please do whatever you can to help keep the performing arts alive!
