For its 79th season, the Wilton Playshop will present The Philadelphia Story, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
The Philadelphia Story, written by Philip Barry and directed by Al Recchia, will run Nov. 4-19. Familiar to many from the classic movie by the same name, this comic play is the story of socialite divorcée Tracy Lord who is preparing to marry reliable but dull George Kittredge. First husband CK Dexter Haven, still in love with Tracy, enlists the help of a journalist and his photographer to win her back. By the time the dust settles, Tracy must choose between three potential bridegrooms on her wedding day.
A Charlie Brown Christmas, based upon the Peanuts comic strip, will be presented Dec. 9-11. John Atkin will direct this stage adaptation of the classic animated television special in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the other Peanuts grapple with the real meaning of Christmas.
The final show of the season will be the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Skip Ploss directs this satire of big business which will be performed April 28-May 13, 2017.
