Seasonal Allergies
by Katherine DiSavino and Kevin Mead

Nov 25-Dec 11, 2016
Tickets: $15    

Directed by Sairy Martocci

 

Seasonal Allergies tend to show themselves right around the holidays: do you feel a tickle in the back of your throat when you realize your vegetable dishes cooked faster than you thought, and now they're ready a full hour before the turkey will be out of the oven? Do your eyes water uncontrollably after you've nearly broken your back climbing into the attic to find the Christmas lights (and then discover that only half the strand lights up)? Do you find yourself overheated when family members decide to extend their vacation and "hang out" for a few more days in your home?

Then you, my friend, have got Seasonal Allergies. And you are not alone! 9 out of 10 people have Seasonal Allergies, but nobody has a case worse than Julia Shelby and her brother Peter. So get ready to laugh away your throat tickle, and clear your sinuses with a healthy dose of Holiday Fun.

Cast

  • JULIA – Judie Douglas
  • THOMAS – Bill Howard
  • PETE – David Snow
  • J.D. – T. Gregory Knox
  • ALLISON – Sarah Campbell
  • EMILY – Rebecca Gomez
  • CHARLIE – Makinnon O'Brien

"SEASONAL ALLERGIES is a funny, heartwarming story about friends, family, and holiday stresses…this is a kinder, gentler comedy, ... a Neil Simon[-ish] family tale"
– BroadwayWorld.com

"This is a delightfully funny play about a family dealing with one member in personal turmoil who comes to them seeking comfort, but turns into a monumental pain in the butt. The situation is real, the humor is real, but so is the sense of a family in turmoil trying to regain the warmth and love of the season."

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
Jan 6-22, 2017

Directed by Keri McClain

All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes!

Three “terrible” actors decide to perform all of Shakespeare’s plays (in comically shortened or merged form) within 90+ minutes. Laden with physical comedy, fast and furious entrances and exits, popular and local references, and the actors changing costumes, characters, and plays at a hilarious pace, this is a wild and fun introduction to Shakespeare’s canon which is accessible to all!

Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

“PITHIER THAN PYTHON. IRRESISTIBLE.”
– New York Times

“STUPENDOUS, ANCHORLESS JOY!”
– The Times of London

Patron Testimonial

"We absolutely LOVED the show ... it was a delight, perfectly cast, costumed so well that additional sets were not needed, could have been an off Broadway production right here in K-ville. When I was in NYC in Dec., I saw 3 off Broadway shows which made me appreciate TKD even more ... including the venue! When I tell people that TKD is as good as NYC, I know what I am talking about!"
- L. Denton, Knoxville
