 A WORLD PREMIERE
March 21-24, 2024
FALL RIVER:
A Lizzie Borden Musical
by Rick Vale

THE ALLEY is proud to be the first to present a new musical, written and directed by Rick Vale.  The 1892 murders of Andrew and Abby Borden in Fall River, Massachusetts…and the trial of Lizzie Borden which followed…held the nation in thrall.  It was a sensation of “firsts” for the United States and the world: a well-bred young woman accused, women reporters offered a chance to report on the case, and women allowed in the courtroom as observers for the first time.  It tested the bounds of American print news and “fake news” – and all the characters involved were, and are, as colorful as if always and intentionally written for the theatre.  This dark, entertaining, musical will be presented in THE ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART.

RED, WHITE & TUNA
by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, & Ed Howard

Raymond Kester,
Andrew Persinger,
and Martin Stapleton
reprise their roles in this, the third in a series of comedic plays (GREATER TUNA, A TUNA CHRISTMAS, TUNA DOES VEGAS) each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state. The plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. The plays are notable in that these three men play the entire cast of nearly twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages. Directed by Tiffany Johnson, this production will be held outside at beautiful GRAY’S PARK (2867 N. 100 W, Anderson, IN). Bring some lawn chairs, a bottle of wine, and a picnic – come enjoy the show. Click on the poster to purchase tickets.

All performances, including Sunday, begin at 7:00pm.
