The Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's The Drowsy ChaperoneThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s The Drowsy Chaperone is fantastically fun. Of course, it helps that the book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, and the music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, are filled with amusing lines, scenarios, and situations. It also helps that this summer’s Showboat cast is so talented, appearing in one impressive production after another, including Thursday night’s performance.

Nicole Ferguson and Brian Cowing in High FidelityThere is so much energy in the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s High Fidelity that I practically had to hold myself down in my seat throughout Thursday night’s performance to avoid jumping up and dancing along with the actors. Not only are the book by David Lindsay-Abaire, lyrics by Amanda Green, and music by Tom Kitt great fun, but director Patrick Stinson and his cast seem to have a rocking good time staging it.

Boyz II Nun: "Nunsense" and "Altar Boyz," at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre through June 12

The Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's NunsenseThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre kicks off its summer season with two similarly themed shows running in repertory, and I caught a double-feature of Nunsense and Altar Boyz on Saturday – a marathon day of Catholic humor. The pairing is a good choice, with each offering a self-aware musical featuring jokes related to Catholicism. And while the scripts push the boundaries of Christian decency, neither crosses over into completely irreverent territory, each maintaining a respect for religious roots and having fun with the shows’ core faith, rather than at its expense.

members of the It's a Wonderful Life: A live Radio Play children's choirThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s production of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play has several things going for it. One, it’s nostalgically familiar – who hasn’t seen the It’s a Wonderful Life movie at least once? Two, it’s a holiday show for an audience that’s more than likely in a Christmas spirit, and already jolly when sitting down to watch the play. And three, it’s short, running one hour without an intermission. However, there’s one major element missing from the Showboat’s show that would make it really good: melodrama.
