“Jackalope: Summer Tales of Strangeness”
Thursdays – Sundays
They’re creepy and they’re kooky! Join TCL for a fun-filled evening of seven short plays that will evoke the nostalgia of summer nights around the campfire…with some delightful surprises! A talking rock considers revenge on high school bullies, a hungry swamp monster has a taste for a pink-clad cosmetic saleswoman, and a chatty chupacabra longs for a fresh start. All told, campfire stories and mysterious urban legends inspire fresh, funny theater.
“The Jackalope Play Festival continues TCL’s highly successful initiative to produce new works. In delightful and imaginative ways, these plays ask us to confront our assumptions as well as our fears, as they shine the light on things that go bump in the night, with hilarious and even poignant results, “ says Madge Montgomery, Artistic Director for TCL and director of five of the seven festival plays. Brian Miller, lighting and set designer, directs the remaining two.
Calling all unicorns, jackalopes, mermaids, basilisks, abominable snowmen and New Jersey Devils: Come to either of TCL’s two Sunday matinees on June 23 or June 30 dressed as your favorite “mythical creature” and you may win a prize!
Special Discount Nights: Thursday, June 20 and Thursday, June 27 – ALL tickets just $10!

Poetry and Art Submissions Wanted for TCL Fundraiser!
This August TCL will be presenting the musical A…My Name Will Always Be Alice, conceived by Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. One of the most beloved characters in this play is the Poetess who carries a book called For Women Only that she says is sold in the lobby. We thought… why not have a real book of poetry and art? There are many people associated with TCL who would love to contribute something to our lovely theater and here is one way to do it. We do not want to limit submissions to just female artists/writers. However, we do ask that the subject matter be feminine. Our book will be titled For Women Only….Well Almost.
