Great things come in little packages
This is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. The actors play the many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a "real people's world."

Simon’s comedy about Barney Cashman’s failed attempts to join the sexual revolution!
Middle-aged, married, and overworked, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it's too late and arranges three seductions: the first proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses, the next is a 20-ish actress who's too kooky by half, and the third is a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney's best friend. "Delightfully hilarious and witty, as well as filled with wisdom about human nature” - New York Post

The Winni Players Community Theatre annual staged reading in commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day
An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Presented by the Winni Players Community Theatre
May 11-14

Something for everyone, a comedy tonight!
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave in Ancient Rome, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.  This unforgettable, hysterical musical has "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
