                                     of Henry II of England. The play opens
                                     with the arrival of Henry’s wife Eleanor of
                                     Aquitaine, whom he has had imprisoned
                                     since 1173. Uneasy is the head on which
                                     the crown lies, and uneasy the truce
                                     between a matchless king and queen.

scene after another. Will their attraction for each other overcome the obstacles

     Deathtrap has been said to be “something so evil that it infects all who
touch it. The thing has a life of its own. In Deathtrap, Levin has taken the basic
 components of thrillers and horror stories; murder, deceit, innocent dialogue
 with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, unexpected turns of events, etc.,
   and twisted and rearranged the pieces again and again.” Thirty years after
       its release, it is still being performed in theaters around the globe.

                              A comedy about two pairs of lovers, Benedick
                              and Beatrice and Claudio and Hero. Benedick
                              and Beatrice are engaged in a “merry war”;
                              they both talk a mile a minute and proclaim
                              their scorn for love, marriage and each other.
                              In contrast, Claudio and Hero are sweet young
                              people who are rendered practically speechless
                              by their love for one another.

                     A snow blizzard carries Dorothy and Toto to the Magical
                     Elfinsland where Glinda is the Good Witch of the North
                     Pole! Dorothy must get home to open her Christmas
                     presents in the morning, so she sets off to meet the Wizard
                     who lives in the Great Palace of Toys. The Scarecrow is
                     now a Snowman, the Tin Man becomes a Tin Soldier and
                     the Lion is now a toy Stuffed Lion that is sadly overpriced.

    Dear Friends,
    Welcome to the 34th Season of the Shawnee Playhouse!
    Having live theatre in a small village is a rare and
    wonderful thing.
    This theater has provided us with many wonderful
    memories, including watching our five children,
    and many other children, perform on this stage.
    In addition it is immensely fulfilling to see so many
    of you so grandly entertained here.
    We hope you enjoy this historic and wonderful
    place and the bountiful talent before you.
       Sincerely,
