Arden Playhouse has closed, this site has saved some glimpses into the
fun and funny shows presented by the theater. On the various Season
pages you can read more about these plays. Some have links to video
promos and (for plays written by Michael Messmer) video clips from the
Nearly half the shows produced at
Arden Playhouse were written by Messmer. A current catalog of his
comedies (in PDF) can be downloaded which includes contact information
for those interested in producing one of his plays. This is a
collection of over 30 comedies (Witty Wacky Plays) that are easy to
produce with relatively small casts (more female than male roles). All
require a single set (usually with several entrance points) and are set
in the current era (easy to costume and furnish). Most of the language
would rate a PG in a movie.
They are in the tradition of the Marx Brothers, Lucille Ball, Red Skelton and Carol Burnett. In other words: good, clean fun.
