2023 Season,  shows


Gaslight Theater is bringing together theater, art, and food in a special fundraising

Peter Shaffer’s “Jellofish,” directed by Birdie Katz will be for two performances only, Saturday, September 30 at 7:00p.m. and Sunday October 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Four World War II veterans have been playing a monthly game of poker for over 50 years, putting aside five percent of every pot until they have accumulated a sizable fortune. As they compete in this month’s game, they struggle over what to do with their nest egg. As the debate escalates, their conflicting views on love, friendship, politics, and death are revealed. As each player comes upon a “random” history chip, the events of their lives are represented. The history chips were created whenever a significant event occurred in one of their lives. As some of the history chips turn up, the deeper implications of a lifetime of friendship and competition are explored.

The cast includes Walter Guild, Bill Haley, and Frank Omar.

Wine and cheese and crackers will be provided after each performance as part of the admission price for those holding an adult ticket.
