The Courtyard Theater

This was the official website for the Courtyard Theater until 2016. Their current website is at Go to the Courtyard Theater's current website to see the schedule for their newest productions and to buy tickets. The Courtyard Theater is owned and operated by one of its founders, Bob Taylor. 

The content below is from this site's 2013 -2016 archived pages.


The Courtyard Theater has been providing entertainment at it's current location beginning in October of 2013. We bring quality theater entertainment to the community and have put on a number of shows including Sweeney Todd, 1776, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Rumors, Cabaret, White Christmas.

Beginning in summer of 2014, we started our annual Childrens Camp. During this time we brought children in from all over the surrounding area and taught them many of the "ins and outs" of theater. They performed the show "Alladdin" and learned skills that they can and will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

The rights to put on these shows are costly, and local advertisers do their part to finiance an essential part of our cultured community. This go fund me will aid in making it possible for the Theater to go the EXTRA MILE! Upon reaching our goal we can keep our doors open, gain access to shows whose names we ALL know, and will ensure we can move forward into the next chapter of our story!

Keeping Art alive in our society is just as important now as it ever has been, and we thank you for your donations!

E.B. White's beloved children's tale is brought to life in this stage production, which finds the young farm pig Wilbur attempting to avoid a dire fate. Of all the barnyard creatures, Wilbur's staunchest ally is Charlotte a thoughtful spider who devises an intriguing plan to keep the gentle little swine out of the slaughterhouse. Although Charlotte's efforts, which involve words written in her delicate web, seem far-fetched, they may just work.

Welcome to Bigelow's Bar & Grill. It's a big city kind of joint.
The kind of place where hard nosed private eyes, hard nosed crime reporters, and a lot of other people with hard noses hang out. Mr. Bigelow wants to make sure you have a good time so he's got his best waitress (actually his only waitress) Ginger on duty, and Charlie, the bartender is here to take care of your every need. But don't expect him to listen to you cry in your beer, cause Kleenex just ain't on the menu. You can usually find P.I. Jack Barlow sitting at the bar, waiting for his next big case, or just talking business with one of the crime reporters from the Gazette. Yep, Bigelow's is a big city kind of joint, and you never know what might happen...


Slow Roasted Pot Roast or Bruschetta Chicken (YOUR CHOICE)
Red Skinned Seasoned Potatoes
Italian Tomato Bisque Soup

DESSERT - Cheesecake with Strawberry Topping.

Beverages: Water, Lemonade & Tea Will be made available on all tables.




The place is New York City, the time is the 1990s.

Middle-aged, upper-middle class Greg finds Sylvia, a dog (played by a human), in the park and takes a liking to her. He brings her back to the empty nest he shares with Kate. When Kate gets home, she reacts very negatively to Sylvia and wants her gone. They eventually decide that Sylvia will stay for a few days before they decide whether she can stay longer, but Greg and Sylvia have already bonded. Over the next few days, Greg spends more and more time with Sylvia and less time at his job. Greg and Sylvia go on long walks; they discuss life and astronomy. Already dissatisfied with his job, Greg now has another reason to avoid work.
