January 26, 2018 & January 27, 2018 @ 7pm Seamus O’Malley’s Pub and Grub is a place that he holds most dear to his heart. But business hasn’t been all that great lately so he’s hired Peter Blackwell and his public relations team at Blackwell’s List to help him put his cherished pub back on the map. But how? With a treasure hunt that promises a pot of gold at the end of its “rainbow”, that’s how. Who among you will become a cold-blooded killer? Or a victim??

Of Mice & Men

January 13, 2018 @ 7pm January 14, 2018 @ 3pm 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 constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss’ promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it’s obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can’t run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: How should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands? The Calhoun Little Theater is pleased to stage this gripping drama based on the classic novel by John Steinbeck. The play is directed by Virginia McChesney, staged by the Rome Little Theatre and produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services. This production is made possible by our generous 2017-18 Season Sponsor Cathy Camp Bomar. **To maintain the authenticity of the literature and out of respect for the request of the Steinbeck Estate to use the language of despair and content of the play as...
