They Never Made It Big
NIGHT VISION is a play about the the qualities that hold a marriage together for nearly fifty years, as revealed in the loneliness that ensues after one of the couple passes. Directed by Joe Milliren, this piece reaches directly into the heart of anyone who knows anything about the way that love always seems to place "the other" in the center of everything. David Seremet and Kathleen O'Halloran delivered a moving performance.
The Cabaret Theatre pur-chased 227 Main Street on August 13, 2015. In September, David Seremet and John Carosella mounted "They Never Made It Big" at The Art Center. Beautifully supported by the original songs composed and performed by Lauren Condon, the show was well received and, more importantly, itembodied the philosophy of the theatre company: two old actors reveal why they chose to stay local and provide good theatre to their local community.

Sometimes the Heart Sings
Mr. Donaldson is the town's curmudgeon and his grumpiness is legendary. It seems futile to try to deliver him some "Christmas Spirit" by caroling outside his house, but forces beyond human control convince a young couple otherwise. In the course of the play, everyone discovers that singing isn't always heard by everyone. Sometimes only the heart hears the most special songs.
