Rylan Morsbach, who wowed audiences in Scaramouche Jones (2010), returns to the Majestic to perform in Pauline Productions' (PaulineLive.com) I Am My Own Wife by Doug Wright.

Rylan Morsbach portrays over 30 characters in this tour-de-force performance as we follow the many threads that make up Charlotte's life.

"An experience that is intellectual, theatrical, funny, and poignant... without forgiveness and sentiment [it] unravels the story of one life." —NYTheatre.com

TIGHT PANTS

Friday, June 22 • 8:00PM Tickets $18/$20
Saturday, June 23 • 2:00PM/8:00PM
**NEW PLAY PREMIERE**
Tight Pants is the remarkable new first play by Betel Arnold that grew out of producing director Danny Eaton's writing workshop at the Springfield Museums. Set in the Dominican Republic, it's the story inspired by her mother's journey from DR to America. In the play, we follow the lives of two women, Kamila and Griselda, who are friends and neighbors in the barrio. These amigas struggle to maintain their homes but their bond proves powerful enough to change the course of their lives and affect the attitudes they hold about themselves and the men in their lives.

Fierce and funny, Tight Pants kicks off the first of a planned annual new works week, allowing us to look in on and learn from a fascinating culture different than our own.

IMPROVISATIONAL COMEDY
with the MAJESTERS

WEDNESDAYS at 7:30PM General Admission $9
Improv with the Majesters is the new Wednesday night tradition during Majestic summers! Our own troupe of improvisational comics take suggestions and inspiration from the audience each night to create hilarious scenes and songs on the spot. It's a fun evening full of surprise and antic comedy!

Every Wednesday is a brand new experience, so come back week after week for a new show each time!

STUDIO TWO:
THE EARLY BEATLES

Thursday, August 2 • 7:30PMTickets $24/$26
Unlike other Beatles tribute acts, Studio Two concentrates on the most exciting and fun time in the Fab Four's career: the club and touring years, when fans actually saw them play live. Think of Liverpool's Cavern Club, or the Indra and Kaiserkeller in Hamburg, where songs like "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", "I Saw Her Standing There", and "She Loves You" were born. You'll be dancing in your seat!

THE DIAMOND COLLECTION

Get your tickets early, because this show always sells out.

RAY GUILLEMETTE, JR.:
A RAY OF ELVIS

Thursday, August 16 • 7:30PMTickets $24/$26
Friday, August 17 • 8:00PM
