FreeFall Stage
Showtimes: Thurs, Fri, Sat at 7 pm/ Sun 4 pm

Based on one of C.S. Lewis’s most well-known novels, James Forsythe’s Screwtape is about a mid-level satanic bureaucrat, Screwtape, who is training a young demon, Wormwood, to lure his first soul, Mike Green (aka “The Patient”), into their “Father Below’s” pit. Mike has very recently become acquainted with Christianity, but is still ignorant of its meaning and authority, a fact which Wormwood and Screwtape take advantage of as they attempt to get him back to his old ways of life. The demons seek to trip Mike up by way of his overprotective mother, a new boss, a demon possessed co-worker, as well as a new love interest, who comes with her own temptress. All sorts of Hell breaks loose as the demons do anything and everything to pop their patient into the pit.

THE OLD MUSKETEERS by Rodger Hoopman
Burton, Jonathan and Oscar reached the glorious high of their careers as the THREE MUSKETEERS some thirty years ago in their wildly popular film. Time flies! Now our aging trio have a chance to revisit that high. Will they be able to stop their niggling, overcome their infirm bodies and reinvigorate their now sagging careers? “Together they stand, divided they fall.” A world premiere by Chautauqua producer Rodger Hoopman.
