A Heartwarming Comedy


A celebration of theatre at its best ...and theatre people behaving their not so best. 
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Jason Harris) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his “best” friend, a television star (Peter Mandel), his novice producer (Rachel Perry), his doped-up diva (Rosalind Farotte), his genius director (Bruce Pember), a lethal drama critic (Michael Johnson), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Gannon Janisch) on his first night in Manhattan.

It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.



Directed by Kevin Heath

Starring Rosalind Farotte, Rachel Perry, Jason Harris, Bruce Pember, Michael Johnson, Gannon Janisch* and Peter Mandel*

Our 2018 Main Stage Season

Welcome to our 8th Season at Limelight

New faces, old friends and a year of laughter, love and life.

​​​

Our annual fundraiser for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Limelight partners with Steve Spencer and Kae Jenny-Spencer for the 8th year in a row. Door prizes and special surprises abound, in addition to a wonderful show for the holidays!

In this comedy with a heart, Mom can't stop trying to fix things in her family. Even though she has been dead for 11 months. She shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission and, like Clarence in It’s A Wonderful Life, she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. One by one the family's secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.

​The
perfect "feel good" comedy to start your holidays off! It's "Topper" meets "It's A Wonderful Life"

Directed by Kevin Heath

Starring Christy Wait, Bill Tindall, Denee Lewis, Angie Higgins*, Myra Kaelin*, and Tom Shamrell*
