Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon

March 1, 2, 3
Our first show is the Neil Simon classic “Lost in Yonkers.” Neil Simon’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set in Yonkers, New York in 1942. This memory play centers around two brothers, Arty and Jay, who have been deposited in their grandmother’s home while their father travels desperately trying to scrape enough money together to pay off his debts. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, their mentally-challenged Aunt Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers. Over the course of the play, the young boys learn lessons about love, respect, and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.
Auditions for Lost in Yonkers will be held on at the Champaign Public Library on January 6, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. More details on our website.

When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime – and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem.
