Set in the 1940’s and galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the Air Force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which (for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner), and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings-on and the trumped-up stories they tell him.
SEE HOW THEY RUN, is the first show the incorporated Driftwood Players did in 1960. It will be our Champagne Opener for our upcoming season, and we are excited to welcome everyone back to our theatre for a live show!

A musical in two acts for teens and adults.
It’s 1985 and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score does for the 80’s what Hairspray did for the 60’s.
