The company's first full-scale musical and only one original Hale comedy are on the calendar for the Hale Center Theatre's 1991-92 season. There'll also be a rarely done Broadway classic and a highly acclaimed comedy by the late Larry Shue.
Here's the season:- "The Foreigner," one of Shue's finest works, Dec. 27, 1991, through Feb. 17, 1992.
- "Stop Sounding Like A Woman!" (Feb. 20 through April 13), an older comedy by Ruth and Nathan Hale.
- "Brigadoon," the lyrical Lerner & Loewe musical about a magical Scottish village, April 16 through June 8.
- "Catch Me If You Can," a murder-mystery comedy, June 11 through Aug. 3.
- "The Odd Couple," Neil Simon's hit comedy, Aug. 6 through Sept. 28.
- "The Rainmaker," Hope Abelson's gentle comedy about a brash young con artist who comes into the life of a lonely southwestern woman, Oct. 1. through Nov. 21.
- "A Christmas Carol," HCT's venerable Yuletide tradition, Nov. 23 through Dec. 23.
- THE HALE CENTER THEATER also has announced the four summer shows for its rustic theater near Grover in Wayne County.
