HONK is a large cast family musical for adults and children, performed by adults and children, with wonderful music and a story that relates to our time and says "It’s okay to be different". Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

The Diary Of Anne Frank

April 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, & 10, 2016

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination. 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.

By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Faith County

May 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, & 22, 2016

Faith County is a prequel to Faith County II: An Evening of Culture, presented by Playmakers in January 2009. You will recognize those charming characters from the Mineola Cultural Society who gave an “unforgettable” performance of Romeo and Juliet. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in the South, there’s a place where the bee-hive hairdo is still the rage and Saturday nights are reserved for the tractor pull in nearby Pickler. A colorful collection of good ole’ country folk gather round for this year’s county fair, and there’s stiff competition in the arts and crafts category.
