Neil Simon’s very funny show loosely based on the Biblical Book of Job. A (rare) devout multimillionaire whose faith is tested encounters every malady and yet stands firm in the midst of collapsing real estate around him - often called Mr. Simon’s most imaginative play. A big hit at ALT 20 years ago and the story begs for REVIVAL!


Showcase Musical

"Always Patsy Cline" is a tribute to the legendary country singer who dies tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963.

This musical play includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams, and Walkin After Midnight. Starring Debbie Maneke as patsy Cline, Lee Cox as Louise Seger, and music by Steve Loucks and the Bodacious Bobcats.

The award-winning film was inspired by the strong stage play which looks at the the real people behind the stereotypes of mental illness and the clash of wills between a charming rogue and a fierce and fear-based nurse. A beautiful drama with comedic candor that questions the nature of “healing.”
