Doubt Opens Our Season September 29, 2023

Father Brendan Flynn, a thirty-something Catholic priest is assigned to St. Nicholas Parish, the Bronx, New York. The likable assistant pastor enjoys playing basketball with the boys of the school until it is reported that one boy returned to class with wine on his breath, Sister Aloysius, school principal, suspects Father Flynn of inappropriate relations with the student and undertakes her own investigation of the priest’s record before confronting him. Father Flynn insists he is innocent.

Our 2023-2024 season opens with Doubt by John Patrick Shanley, a gripping and powerful drama of righteous suspicion and passionate denial. Playwright Shanley presents his characters with full empathy, and the ambiguity introduced by the conflict sustains doubts about the moral certainty of all involved. The play will be presented in The Mountcastle Forum, Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, September 29, 30, and October 6 and 7 at 7:30 pm with matinee October 1 and 8 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available at the box office.

Tickets available at online, by phone at (336) 747-1414, or at the door.

We want to provide actors of all ages with opportunities to perform in meaningful, challenging roles. As an amateur company, we are committed to the highest standards of performance.

Our outreach program extends to organizations provide services and moral support to the aging. Acting, as a performance art form, requires engaging with others and practicing and honing listening skills, memory reliability, and introspection. A creative lifestyle in the afternoon years has a demonstrative positive effect in overcoming depression, isolation, addiction, and a host of conditions often associated with growing older.
