Theatre Burlington – A Bad Year For Tomatoes

Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy neighbours is another story entirely. Buy tickets online.

Always a Bridesmaid

From the writers that brought you the TV classic comedy series The Golden Girls comes this hilarious comedic romp. Four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other’s weddings … no matter what. If you’ve ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride’s bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying “I do” or been forced to wear the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny comedy is definitely for you … and your dearly beloved!

Dates: April 26, 27, May 3, 4, 10, 11, 2019 Dinner & Show May 2, 9, 2019 Show only
