ATTENTION!! 

Due to heavy rain, our theater has sustained severe damage. Stratton Players has decided to cancel performances of THE FOREIGNER originally scheduled for April 20th-22nd, 2018. The show must go on! We have partnered with Fitchburg State University in order to perform 4 shows the following weekend. April 27th @ 730 pm, April 28th @ 2 pm and 7:30 pm, April 28th @ 2 pm.  We are hoping we can run this show through May 6th.  Stay Tuned for further details!

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.

Rebuilding Lucy's Barn

WE'VE REACHED OUR FIRST FUNDRAISING GOAL!

Thanks to the generosity of our local community theater lover's and assistance from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund who helped us turn $200K into $400k.
