When two frustrated London housewives decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from
their bleak marriages, they recruit two very different English women to share the cost and
the experience. There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four
bloom again—rediscovering themselves in ways that they—and we—could never have

This is the tale of nun and sex therapist, Dr. Maria D’elencia. Assisted by Sister Mo, a six-
foot, 300-pound Irish nun who gave students nightmares, Sister Maria treats a cavalcade of
fascinating clients. Mix them all together and you get a story that is slapstick, sexy, and
serious. And all this before the Archbishop finds out what’s going on!

Of Mice and Men
by John Steinbeck
Directed by Joanie McElroy
Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land,"
have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a
man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions
with things soft and cuddly, that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant,
with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits"
on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs
Fiddler on the Roof
Book by Joseph Stein
Music and lyrics by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick
Directed by Myrna Feldman
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters
the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the
growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
Rich in historical and ethnic detail, "Fiddler On The Roof" has touched audiences around
the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. Its universal theme of tradition cuts across
barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter,
joy and sadness.

It's unusual for a modern work to become a classic so quickly, but Tolkien's "ring" stories,
which began with The Hobbit, clearly are in this very special category. They stir the
imagination and intellect of everyone they touch. Bilbo, one of the most conservative of all
Hobbits, is asked to leave his large, roomy and very dry home in the ground in order to set
off as chief robber in an attempt to recover an important treasure. It's the last thing that any
sensitive Hobbit would want to do, but great benefit eventually results—not only for Bilbo but
for all of the Hobbits who inhabit Middle Earth—and the hearts of those children and adults
who continue to enjoy this kind of magic.
