Everyone who graduated from the Kingston, NY High School class of ’97 wonders what happened to their adorable May Queen.

Gossip kicks into high gear among these classmates turned co-workers in this fun, fresh, and savvy new office comedy with a gigantic heart.

An exchange of letters that spans a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the play unfolds, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
“Love Letters plays like fine chamber music...completely mesmerizing…poetic and poignant…so perfectly calibrated, so subtly interiorized that it resembles a fine chamber music performance…an ideal choice for the Good Theater's intimate space…” - BroadwayWorld.com
03/02/17 – Join us Thursday, March 2nd at 7:00PM as Tim Mercer presents as benefit show for St. Lawrence Arts!
Tim Mercer is a singer/songwriter out of Portland, ME. He spent 12 years in Brooklyn, NY fronting the rock band, Daphne. During his time in New York, Tim won the K-Rock Battle of the Bands, and was the runner up in the HBO Rock The Stones Contest, as well as the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
'Casey' is the debut solo release of singer/songwriter, Tim Mercer. This collection of songs is the ongoing conversation between him and his wife, Casey, since her passing in June of 2011. The LP was released on July 5th, the 10th anniversary of the day they met.
Teaming up with producers PJ Bianco (Florence and the Machine, LP, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas), Marc Jordan (Velvet Revolver, The Cult), Jonathan Wyman (Rustic Overtones, Scott Sorry) and guitarist Pete Risano, the LP is a departure from Mercer's rock and roll roots, with a sound somewhere in between Peter Gabriel, Imagine Dragons and Jane's Addiction. The lyrics are soulful and genuine, taking the listener from the heartbreak of losing the love of a lifetime to the hope of reuniting when the time comes.
03/29/17 – Horton Foote’s moving play tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman, who longs to escape the cramped Houston apartment where she lives with her protective son, Ludie, and her authoritarian daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae.

While Ludie is at work and Jessie Mae is at the drugstore, Carrie escapes to the bus station and befriends a young woman named Thelma. The new friends travel toward Bountiful together, but when Carrie arrives in nearby Harrison, Texas, she begins to learn that her beloved town isn’t the same as she remembered it.
05/04/17 – SOMEWHERE BETWEEN: NOT AN ORDINARY LIFE is an autobiographical solo show written and performed by two-time Grammy nominee Cidny Bullens.
The story begins with Cindy’s arrival in Los Angeles in the mid-1970’s, taking us through her fateful meetings with songwriter/producer Bob Crewe and Sir Elton John - brushing ever so close to stardom - and covers her unlikely journey as a wife and mother, then as a bereaved parent, and finally as a grandparent. We learn throughout about Cindy’s private struggle with gender identity and how, finally, she decides to jump headlong into the fire of gender transition - to become Cidny, the person he always felt he was.
Cidny Bullens’ SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is a personal, poignant and powerful story of perseverance, tragedy, triumph - and ultimately unconditional love. With a unique perspective on life, Cidny tells his story in an intimate setting with a guitar, images and a healthy sense of humor.
