The US Premiere of a New Comedy by John Spurway

April 16 to May 2, 2021

She was the most popular girl in high school; he was on the math team. They couldn't be more different. Thirty-seven years later, Phil is an actuary, looking for a place to live. Bernadette needs a roommate, preferably a female. The only thing they have in common is that they've both just been dumped. Does misery really love company?


Early Bird Special Dates: April 16 & 17

This show will be performed with social distance seating and other safety protocols. Masks will be required.

Our Next Virtual Play

Saturday, May 15 at 7 pm on Facebook

Celebrity interviewer Ian McWorthy has a dream line-up for tonight's episode of the World Wide Window: a veritable litterful of felines whose internet antics have catapulted them to fame. In this fast-paced series of hilarious interviews, Ian uncovers the story behind Tuffy's first dramatic foray into a cardboard box, learns just what makes Nelson the Grouchy Cat so very, very grouchy, contends with the diva-like antics of Kitty Boo Boo and her entourage, and so much more. So don't miss it! Things are bound to get a little...hairy.
The awesome cast features Bell Tower veterans Cathy Goodman, Megan Frankovich, Julie Sear, Jeannie Bergquist, Jon Aguilar, Jennifer DeCoste, Dakota Vaassen and Tia Ernst alongside newcomers to the Bell Tower "stage" Kevin Firnstahl, Megan Oltmanns, Stephen Green and Teresa Green.
This is a virtual production and will take place on Facebook. Due to copyright restrictions, the videos of these performances will not remain online. To view a performance, you must log into Facebook at the scheduled times. All performance are free, but goodwill donations will be accepted.
