In the Wings

Never Too Late, a hit comedy from the Sixties, ran for two years on Broadway and was presented by the Lamp-Lite Players in 1979.

Lamp-Lite’s "mature leading man," Rick Jones, plays the surprised “expecting father-to-be” and Amy Maurer, a Lamp-Lite leading lady, plays the expectant mother. They are joined by a gang of favorite Lamp-Lite comedians.

Opening night is Friday, May 8, 2020.



Lamp-Lite Theatre is a non-profit community playhouse that relies entirely on volunteers, especially in these categories:

Much Ado About Nothing

Pat Harris’ unique adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing will be  underscored with the musical direction of Charisse Gregory and will be performed by a cast of veteran performers, as well as several multi-talented newcomers to our stage.

Included in the cast of this two-act adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy are Kevin Helmer, Samantha Johnson, Kearsten Clark Humber, Bill Small, Hollis Thompson, Jessie Licht, Tim Hogle, Jamie Couch, Matthew Bateman, Kasey Jobe, steven Bryant, Frank McKellar, David McClary Norton and Erik Brokman, plus an ensemble of Muses-Musicians to capture and relay the spirit of the play: Sally Ellsworth, Tiffany Gauntt, LaChanda Maxie and Jody Ryan.

Whether you have much, little, or no experience with Shakespeare, we think you will find this production "user-friendly" and entertaining.
