Our Current Season

Beloit Civic Theatre is proud to announce our 2020-21 season.

Since A Red Plaid Shirt was cancelled last spring due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are moving the production to the fall slot in our new season. If, for some reason we are still not able to do performances in the fall, it will be moved once again to the winter slot in January 2021. Stay posted!

at 7:30 p.m.
Also 3 p.m. matinees on

Directed by Doris Tropp

Two recently retired couples go through the ups and down of being together 24/7 in their "golden years."  The two men fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty decides he wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With a little "subtle redirection" from their wives and a creative solution to a very unusual problem (which may or may not include a homemade coffin) they find the right track... eventually. There's definitely something funny about retirement!

The charismatic governor of Massachusetts has been caught in a lie about his affair with the runner-up of a beauty pageant. In the wake of his immediate removal, his mild-mannered lieutenant governor, Ned Newley is catapulted to the big office. Ned Newley doesn’t even want to be Governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But, political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office. A completely incompetent temporary receptionist on her first day on the job manages to tangle the situation even further.

"An insightful, witty satire about modern American politics. Funny, timely and - dare we say - entirely possible." - Broadway World

Four redneck gas station attendants and a pair of waitressing sisters — who address their patrons at the Double Cupp diner with soothing pet names like "baby" and "sugar" — sing a collection of radio-worthy country ballads and rock tunes as they go about their simple lives off Highway 57 located somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina. The gas station doesn’t appear to get a whole lot of business. Still, they haven’t found time to repair Jim’s uncle’s defunct Winnebago because they are too busy filling the long days by making music. They also flirt with the women at the diner down the road a spell. The sisters Prudie Cupp and Rhetta Cupp serve up homemade pies and generously poured coffee. These big-hearted gals also help out in the music making, using whatever pot or pan comes to hand to provide the percussion. This is a musical tribute to life by the roadside!
