    July 20, 2018, 7:30 PM - August 4, 2018, 9:30 PM @ Dupree Theater

    Directed by B.J. Cleveland, MainStage brings a classic comedy by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman to the stage. The central figure in the story, Newton Fuller, just wants “a little place in the country to call his own.” Despite disgust from his city-slicker wife and daughter, Newton drags his family out to their own personal “Green Acres,” a wreck of a homestead with broken windows, falling plaster and a cow in the kitchen. But with a little bit of faith and a lot of guts, maybe Newton can make this house into a home?
