“Showtime at First Baptist”
Comedy by Ron Osborne - A Samuel French Production

First Baptist of Ivy Gap's 100th anniversary picnic was a smashing success, except for the bolt of lightning that struck the church's steeple, igniting a fire that destroyed the sanctuary, and so much more. In the wake of the disaster, key women of the church – led by Edith, the pastor's take-charge wife –plan a talent show to help raise funds and spirits, and maybe shock a Baptist or two along the way.

Menu : (Exception: Friday Nights- See “FRYDays at Memories above”) Southern Fried Chicken, Pork Loin with baked apples, Mashed potatoes with gravy, Baked Wild Rice, Steamed Vegetable Blend, Memories famous fluff, Spinach salad with Hot bacon dressing, Corn Meal Muffins, Bread Pudding.

Sure to be an instant classic...This touching comedy is full of laughs, realistic characters and thought-provoking issues...The Southern women who inhabit the world of Ivy Gap are amazing!

“Fox on the Fairway”
Comedy by Ken Ludwig - A Samuel French Production

This hilarious tribute takes audiences on a romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. 

MENU: Chicken Marsala with mushrooms, Wild Rice, Steamed Vegetable Blend, Memories Famous Fluff, Strawberry Spinach Salad, Warm Dinner Rolls, Rhubarb Cake

Musical Comedy by Carole Caplan Lonner - A Samuel French Production

"Don’t Say Goodbye… I’m Not Leaving"
Comedy by Roger Karshner - A Samuel French Production

Do you have the will to make a will?  When admitted to the hospital with a non-specific illness, Herb is pressured by his wife to discuss his ‘wishes’ with her brother, Bruce, a high-powered attorney. He begrudgingly agrees, but during the meeting between Herb and Bruce, Bruce spontaneously collapses into a coma, leaving Herb to defend Bruce’s  ‘wishes’ and keep the medical ‘idiots’ from pulling the plug by caring for Bruce in his own home. A month later, as Bruce’s condition remains static, the stressful situation escalates into hilarity.

Comedy by Barb Pease Weber- a Samuel French Production

Sylvia Goldberg’s troubles begin when the old teapot she purchased while in Israel for her grandson’s wedding turns out to be the abode of a geriatric genie named ‘Eugene’ with a bad back and a penchant for vodka and V8.  Not only does this retired New Jersey teacher struggle trying to keep her new ‘friend’ a secret from her three best friends, but when Eugene’s former master tracks her down and threatens her at knifepoint, her very safety is at risk.  Be careful what you wish for, Sylvia, it may just come true! A magical romantic comedy for seniors and “juniors” of all ages.

“Harris Cashes Out”
Comedy by Londos D’Arrigo - A Dramatists’ Guild Production

Forty years ago, Harris Wellborn wrote an off-Broadway musical which infamously closed after just one performance. We find the now-elderly tunesmith down on his luck, living in a run-down apartment building dependent on the charity of his domineering sister- yet still dreaming of making it on Broadway.  The laughs unfold when the witty Harris is thrown together with the flaky young woman and her scheming boyfriend who live down the hall. Thanks to the magic of the internet, Wellborn’s life takes a hilarious and unexpected turn when his neighbors come up with a devious plan to cash in on Harris’ past.

MENU: (Exception: Friday Nights- See “FRYDays at Memories above”) Lasagna, Oven Baked Honey Ham, Au gratin Potatoes, Steamed Vegetable Blend, Memories famous fluff, Dinner Salad with Ceasar dressing, Warm Dinner rolls, Cherrry Pretzel Torte

January 11, 1959, I met my husband at Weiler’s Log Cabin Ballroom. He was out with his boyfriend an I was out with my girlfriend. We celebrated our 47th Wedding Anniversary this past June 24th. Now my husband and I are enjoying the Dinner Theater, and also the Great Chicken Comedies. It would be nice if we are both here in 2011 to celebrate our 50th here at Memories. Thank you for the Great Memories! Gene & Judy P.
