This year the Freeport Players present Café Murder, a fun dinner theater murder mystery written by Nathan Hartswick. Come see if you can solve the crime before our self-taught investigator figures it all out. Performance takes place at the First Parish Congregational Church Basement, 40 Main Street, Freeport, ME on Saturday, February 29, 2020. The restaurant opens at 6:00 and, in addition to the show, you’ll be treated to a great meal of blackbird pie, side vegetable, and birthday cake. A cash bar will be available.
Black Coffee by Agatha Christie will be directed by Bob Gilbert. Show dates are Fridays and Saturdays, July 10, 11, 17, 18, at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays July 12 and 19 at 2:00 p.m. The performances take place at the Freeport Performing Arts Center (FPAC). This is the first piece Christie wrote for the stage and takes place in the library at Abbot’s Cleve, Sir Claud Amory’s house, about 25 miles from London. Hercule Poirot is asked to visit the famous physicist and gets involved in a plot revolving around a stolen formula and a killer.
One Blue Tarp
Written by Maine playwright, Travis Baker, One Blue Tarp, is a comedy about a man, his tarp and the town that tries to take it away from him. David Stillman, a retired Mainer, has just replaced the old, worn out tarp that covers a heap of odds, ends, and whatnots out in his yard with a brand new one. But then he finds out from his neighbor that the town of Clara has recently outlawed blue tarps out in folks yards in an effort to spruce things up and attract more tourists. Not one who likes to be told what to do with his own junk, David vows to fight the new ordinance and the rich woman from away who is behind it. He even enlists his grandson, Buddy, to help defend the tarp. How the way things are wrestles with how life should be. One Blue Tarp runs at the Freeport Performing Arts Center (FPAC) September 4-13, 2019. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30; Sunday matinees are at 2:00.
