In this comic romp, a group of ladies in 1956 discover Communists are threatening their idyllic town.

How to Book Your Seat

What a wild story it is! It’s 1956, and the members of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are setting up for their much anticipated, annual quiche breakfast. When nuclear disaster wipes out the world outside their community center, the bombs continue to drop inside. This is a sassy, satirical romp, replete with audience interaction, improvisation, innuendo, singing, kissing, crying and – of course – quiche.

“We can’t wait to share this show with everyone, and everyone who comes will get involved in some way,” Kim said. “It’s very funny, satirical and tongue-in-cheek – the sort of 1950s sitcom where Lucy and Ethel get trapped in a bank vault, but with a modern message about acceptance, tolerance and getting to know people for who they are, not imposing labels.

Audiences are invited to join in the fun by dressing appropriately for the era. In fact, any patron who arrives at the box office wearing garb appropriate to the 1950s will receive a coupon good for $2 off any item at the concessions stand.

Another big draw is the Great Escape Quiche Bake-off, during which audiences can sample different types of quiche during the intermission of our June 29 show. We’d love it if your favorite recipe could be featured! Our expert panel of judges and audience members will function under these criteria: Delicious taste and aroma, appearance — and, of course, creativity! The top winner will be announced at the June 30 performance, as well as on our Facebook page!
