A Holiday Comedy! The trial and tribulations of a couple producing a Christmas pageant. The pageant's cast must be inventively awful and devilish kids, resulting in mayhem and fun. Credit: By Barbara Robinson

MARCH! The return of the ever-popular "Pistarckle After Dark," presents The Last Five Years, an award-winning musical written by Jason Robert Brown. The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Returning to the Pistarckle stage after their premiere appearances in the 2017-18 Season Opener 'Alternative Facts,' are Emma Landvatter and Ryan Firment. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie's is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect. More details click here.
'Going To Come Back' by St. Thomas playwright Susan Hunter
Here's the sequel to last year's popular 'Catch & Keep'
Performances in May. Specific dates TBD.
Comedy: One year after inheriting The Catch & Keep, an old St Thomas Manor Home, we return to find the sage island woman, Nevilina, still cheerfully helping Bo run the guest house. Bo has had quite a year, missing her old friend and life, while learning how fit in and get things done, island style.
As they prepare for a wedding in the guest house garden, they are hit with a couple of Nature's tropical surprises...a small earthquake to really shake things up and the news a big storm is headed for the island. But more urgently... they are running out of time to renew Bo's old car's inspection sticker and a mouse shows that he likes cake. A lot.
Their guest's misguided agendas and learning why the Catch & Keep has had its young ghost for several generations just adds to the melee' of a few days of vacation in Paradise.
Welcome, again, to the Catch & Keep, where everyone is just...for a bit...goin' ta come back.
