Driving Miss Daisy

January 27 – February 19

A moving Pulitzer-Prize winning comedy, Driving Miss Daisy, is the story of the relationship between a strong-willed, well-to-do Jewish woman and her black chauffeur over 25 years in post-war Atlanta. The relationship begins rocky, but blossoms as the two become each other’s closest friends and confidantes.

PAPA Presents: Pied Piper

Feb 4, 5, 11, & 12

Once upon a time, in Hamelin Town…
A greedy mayor, who taxes his citizens twice a day.
Townspeople, who say “Hey, that’s okay!”
A cheese enthusiast, responsible for the town’s world famous cheese.
A family of rats, who are hungry for the cheese.
A little boy, an outcast.
A mysterious old man, harboring a secret past.
And the Pied Piper.
With his magic pipe the Pied Piper leads the rats away and saves the day, but his service comes at a price that the mayor isn’t willing to pay. What to do? Perhaps we haven’t heard the last of the Pied Piper’s tune…
