Amana- Cash on Delivery, opens September 4 and runs through September 28 on the Old Creamery’s Main Stage, with shows on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 2:00 pm and on Fridays and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm.

When con man Eric decides to get out of the scam business, things come unglued as the tenants he made up in order to collect government money, take on a life of their own.
