2021 Season

Directed by Joni Metras

The Pasture Prime Players are pleased to present their spring production, “Soup du Jour”, book by Todd Mueller and Hank Boland and music and lyrics by Gregg Opelka.

New York City, 1939. There's a mystery at Bailey's restaurant, one of Gotham's top dining establishments, and it's up to Katharine Hawks, the New York Herald-Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning ace reporter, to solve it! J. P. Thompson, editor of the struggling Herald-Tribune is desperately searching for a way to increase circulation. Across town, Stewart Bailey is simultaneously mourning the death of his father and preparing for his imminent wedding to socialite golddigger Tiffany Vandervanden. Stewart has just inherited his father's restaurant, the success of which was built on its famous soup du jour. There's only one catch: Stewart's father took the recipe with him to the grave, and Stewart, along with everyone else in the story winds up searching wildly for the missing recipe. Editor Thompson decides he, too, must have the secret recipe to solve his paper's circulation problems. Enter Katharine Hawks to save the day. Sent undercover as a waitress to Bailey's restaurant to find the recipe for the famed soup, Katharine winds up losing her heart to Stewart Bailey. Once she learns Stewart has lost the recipe, Katharine is in a real dilemma: Career or love? Winning songs, lightning-fast dialogue in the Tracy Hepburn tradition, and a great plot are the delicious ingredients of this delightful tribute to 1930s screwball comedies. “Soup du Jour” is being produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Animals in a coloring book are thrilled when a little boy begins to embellish them with crazy colors and off-the-wall flourishes. But when the boy's older sister begins coloring other pages in more life like hues, social divisions begin to form and friendships are challenged. Will existence as they know it break down? The exuberance and wonder of a picture book meet Animal Farm in this play that offers thoughtful entertainment for performers and audiences of all ages.

From the Classic Tale by

Edgar Allen Poe

Directed by Marty BlackEagle

Roderick Usher, once a happy young man about to be married, and his beautiful sister Madelaine have become victims to the gloom and poisonous atmosphere of the decaying old mansion in which they live. When Madelaine appears near death, the doctor warns Usher not to bury her until he is certain that she is dead. The ensuing horror grips every viewer in its icy chill. The Fall of the House of Usher abounds in moments of haunting beauty such as the ghostly waltz in the Usher family crypt and a visit by the brother's loving sweetheart, Lenore. The play also features moments of chilling horror when Madelaine forces aside the lid of her coffin while a hooded figure roams the halls in search of escape. Whenever Poe's horrific visions threaten to terrify the audience completely, there is always a light moment to compensate.
