Our 2023 Season

FMCP Logo

September 2022   Dear Playhouse Members, Supporters and Friends, As fall approaches, and hopefully cooler weather, we are busy preparing our next production for you. Native Gardens will be presented September 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 and 24 at 7:30. We also have Sunday matinees September 11, 18 and 25 at 3 pm. Make your reservations now as some performances are selling out. This is a comedy about generational differences when new neighbors move in next door, plus there seems to be a question about the property line. Come join us for a fun play!  We have just cast our next, and last, show of our 2022 Season, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which will be presented November 4 – 20. This is our musical for the season, so make plans to see it. We will be announcing our 2023 Season just as soon as royalties and licensing are completed, which should be very soon. Another reminder that your membership tickets do not continue to 2023 but will expire at the end of this calendar year. If you have extra tickets, invite a friend to join you at the Playhouse. Please remember we have added yet another way of accepting donations. The Playhouse is now using Give Lively to accept digital donations. You can visit our link here, or text FMCP to 44-321 to receive a link directly to your phone. Through Give Lively we’ll be able to accept bank transfers and credit/debit cards via a one-time donation, or recurring monthly donations for those who wish to support more regularly. All donations will also receive a tax receipt immediately via email. Sharing the link and spreading the word helps us reach more donors who can now seamlessly donate to support the Playhouse. All donations will go to our fund for a new home for FMCP. Another way to donate is through Amazon Smile, (smile.amazon.com). Just make the Playhouse your charity of choice. Of course, we still accept checks and cash or any other way you’d like to donate to us. Every donation is very appreciated.   See you at the Playhouse, Martha Ferguson and the Board of Directors

The Single Life VS The Married Life

Just in time for the Super Bowl, OTC presents its 12th annual improv playoff to see which lifestyle is better!
Come see the challenge of the year and support the lifestyle you think is more enjoyable. (The single life has won this competition 9 out of the last 11 years)

Quick story:
Kelly (my wife) was an English major in school. Sometimes she “inadvertently” corrects my word choice in a sentence. It’s like she has high-brow Tourette’s. Last month we joined twelve other people for a game of co-ed Flag Football. One guy on the other team, Chase, was intense. He wore cleats, a mouth guard, and football gloves. As my team broke the huddle and came to the line, he screamed, “Who’s got who”. Unintimidated, my wife said, “It’s Whom. Who’s got whom”? My team started running around and said, “Oh, yeah. We’re talking smack…grammar style”.
