Charlotte and Eugene live a quiet, no-nonsense lifestyle surrounded by sudoku and argyle. Robert and Bella are boisterous and messy and ridiculously in love. Then there's the neighbor, Suzanne, who basically doesn't know what's going on, but definitely has something to say about it.Characters:EUGENE: Male, canine (unspecified breed), any age (preferably
older); intelligent, superior, sarcastic, dry wit. Curmudgeonly would be a compliment.
CHARLOTTE: Female, 20-45; kind and hard-working, she is an
architect with a gentle, patient nature and particular,
ROBERT: Male, 20-55; A tolerably good guy, he enjoys
his life and has an enduringly upbeat attitude.
BELLA: Female, canine (Maltese), any age (preferably
younger); happy, enthusiastic, loves attention, and could
charm the lolli off a pop.
SUZANNE: Any gender, any sex, 30-80; Charlotte's neighbor:
nosy, a bit abrasive, and in the midst of emotional/physical
transition; sincerely cares and looks out for Charlotte. A
penchant for being a bit 'extra' and dramatic. Not a dog
lover. Will present as female on stage.
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.
Green Leaf Construction has begun work on the project since early March 2018. We are all excited to begin to have a regular space to work on our sets and store our properties.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to support the Stratton legacy!
