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.

Funny, compassionate, and highly entertaining, embracing a contemporary theme and subject to which we can all relate. - San Antonio Express-News

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.

“Stuck”
Comedy by Neil Haven  *Send in the Weekends

A modern-day screwball comedy introduces us to Ella, an unforgettably charming elevator operator in a historic Milwaukee hotel, whose agoraphobia (fear of crowds and open places) has her sequestered to life in the elevator, living vicariously through her passengers. She befriends Ian, a handsome traveling business man, who is also 'stuck' in his own life's confines. When the antics of his suspicious wife leave Ian's reputation on the line, can Ella help clear his name?

The night of their Senior Prom, four friends swore to be in each other’s weddings… no matter what.  More than 30 years later, these beleaguered bridesmaids continue to keep that vow to help stage the perfect wedding for each other despite runaway brides, fistfights at the altar and the unfortunate mistake to release doves on the first day of hunting season.  Join us on this laugh-out-loud journey as these friends navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony, and discover that careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime.

"Some Enchanted Evening"
Musical Revue of Rodgers & Hammerstein Classics  *Midweeks at Memories

More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Beyond thrilling to them in their respective shows, we sing them in the shower, dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio, in clubs, and yes, in elevators and supermarkets, too. This stunning collection of compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting-both backstage as personal interplay, and performed onstage.  This glorious parade of dozens of genuine hits include “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair,” “Maria,” and, of course, “Some Enchanted Evening.”

Comedy by Pat Cook  *Midweeks at Memories

What do you do with three geriatric sisters who just want to sit at home and talk to one another all at the same time? You move another person in with them. At least, that's what Doc Lomax does when he has a new nurse needing a place to live.  A nurse with a secret, that is. In no time, Nurse Jean has them planning parties, pulling Halloween pranks and wearing jogging suits while they race each other to the corner. But when the nephew shows up with a plan to sell the family house, things seem to get complicated again, especially with Christmas just around the corner. This heartwarming piece is loaded with wisecracks and one-liners that keep the laughter flowing.
